Number of Employees
Executives wanted employees to understand the full package of their compensation, but past HR communication efforts had fallen flat. We knew it had to start with first making sure managers truly understood. And we knew they needed the right talking points to explain it to their direct reports.
We created an “HR Guide to Compensation and Leadership” that was handed out to managers at the end of a multi-week training program.
First, we worked with HR to develop a calendar that lays out the timeline managers should follow to guide their performance and compensation discussions with employees. This made it clear that most of the work happens in the first quarter…and they need to be prepared.

With this guide on hand year-round, managers have messaging to help them talk to employees about topics that are often sensitive and complicated.
