The Transition from Jobs to Skills: Tools for the Journey
The way we think about compensation is changing:
Many organizations are finding it challenging to make timely decisions about whether to reskill, recruit or outsource for a particular skill because they lack good information. Only 25% of companies consider themselves successful in classifying, tracking and rewarding skills. There are tools available to help you make this transition by 1) understanding what skills your organization will/should focus on, 2) gaining insight into which skills are influencing the pay of a selected job and 3) providing skills-based rewards recommendations at the individual employee level.
