Compensation Solutions

Define, align, and develop a compensation solution program for your unique needs. 

Our best compensation practices are based on research and analysis of real data covering compensation and benefit practices. Employers Group’s Compensation Consultants create and sustain a variety of consulting services, from simple market pricing and analysis to more in-depth total rewards plans to cover compensation and benefits costs. Creating a competitive compensation and benefits package boosts employee morale and retention, and also attracts future employees. At Employers Group, our consultants understand your needs and can help your company plan an effective strategy to meet your goals.


Instead of using off-the-shelf data, all of our compensation solutions are
customized and tailored to
each company’s specifications in these ways: 

  • Total labor investment is compared to market price and evaluated for any needed changes.
  • Assess the organization’s talent, labor, and financial goals, as well as overall strategy and mission.
  • Restructure or rearrange the total HR costs and financial commitments to plans and programs that yield a higher HR ROI.
  • Our compensation practices are based on research and analysis of real data covering compensation and benefits practices.
  • Supplement your compensation package through a variety of HR assessment tools such as employee opinion or engagement surveys, organizational culture surveys, and performance appraisals.
