Compensation plays an important role in global, complex organisations. Whether compensation is used to differentiate an organisation from its competitors, to underscore consistency from country-to-country, or to drive performance of the organisation during economic downturns, compensation’s role will continue to evolve and expand.
At the 10th Annual Compensation & Benefits Forum, leading international and regional professionals will bring you the latest information, issues and trends as to how organisations are tackling their compensation and benefits programmes. Our speakers who are experts in their fields will demonstrate real issues and offer progressive and innovative solutions to problems you may be experiencing within your organisation.
The forum will emphasise actual business solutions and many of the presentations will be real life case studies of successful implementations presented by senior executives from major corporations, who will share their successes and failures and provide a framework for decision making. The conference is also supported by four informative workshops that will address the important issues surrounding compensation and benefits.
