Its Role in Today's Pay Programs
Thursday, February 12

Brios on the Country Club Plaza
Kansas City, MO 64108
A typical large company spends months of work and tens of thousands of dollars participating in, organizing, and analyzing compensation surveys, with the objective of making recommendations and responding to questions about their company's pay programs.
- Why all the focus on market data?
- Has it always been this way?
- What in particular are they doing with all that data, and what kinds of problems are they solving through their efforts?
- How should all this fit in with business strategy and compensation philosophies?
Our speaker is Mark Avery

Mark will provide his perspective on trends and approaches regarding the use of market data by today’s top organizations. Mark has 30 years of compensation experience. He has a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance and Economics from Chapman University and an MBA from George Washington University.
