One of Astron Solutions’ popular consulting services is administering employee surveys. As we read through the many anonymous responses, we tend to see similar answers when it comes to the question of compensation, including:
“My pay is too low,”
“I do more than others in my department but make the same salary,” and
“I could work at (insert name of rival organization here) and make more money.”
This tells us, as compensation specialists, that employees are often in the dark when it comes to why they make their specific salaries, and what the term “compensation” fully means.
