| FAIR AND COMPETITIVE BASE PAY |
In the February issue of WorldatWork’s Workspan publication, Sandra McLellan and Laura Sejen with Willis Towers Watson authored an article titled, “Cracking the Case of Stagnant Wages”. The authors make a compelling case for the reasons why employee base pay wages have been flat since the economic depression of 2008. The authors provide sound reasoning why the annual employee performance evaluation and merit increase process is not an eff ective compensation management tool in today’s environment where work is more “event-driven” instead of annual performance focused.
| 2018 is a Great Year! |
As the saying goes, certain years are better years for a great bottle of wine. Last month, I (Bruce Johanson, one of the principal’s and the other twin) was able to be a part of a Board/Management team building experience that was provided by the Haake Scheffer corporate wine & food experience group. This fun, challenging and unique Wine Blending Experience was the perfect approach to meet the organization‘s objective to strengthen the Board/Management relationships as well as clarify roles at each level. I would highly recommend this experience and organization to you.
