By the end of the course, students should be able to design their own compensation system from scratch. Considers how compensation fits with an overall HR strategy, the internal focus on the firm (including alignment, job analysis, and job evaluation), making pay competitive with the outside market (including designing pay levels, types of pay, and pay structures), considering individual contributions (by examining performance appraisals, pay-for-performance and stock options), benefits (such as pensions, child care, and health care), management (including government regulation and managing budgets), and dealing with international issues in setting pay plans.
