HR specialisms: compensation & benefits

first_imgHR specialisms: compensation & benefitsOn 26 Jun 2001 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Compensation and benefits (C&B) used to be considered an HR backwater.To the outsider, at least, it was hardly the most enticing of disciplines. “When I was an HR generalist I used to perceive C&B as some strangeolder guy sitting in the corner,” says Glaxo SmithKline’s director ofInternational Benefits Richard Higginson. But then he “fell into it byaccident” and found he loved it. “Everything we think is important topeople pales into insignificance when it comes to salary issues.” There is no doubt that the profile of C&B specialists is rising and theyare certainly more in demand. Research conducted last year by Salary SurveyPublications showed that the number of experts in its sample rose from 167 inthe year to March 2000, to 259 to March this year – a 55 per cent increase.Employers, it would seem, are finally beginning to put flesh on the theory thatpay and reward – as the best means of attracting, managing and retaining talent– is a very useful strategic tool. And many are putting pressure on theirC&B teams to demonstrate a much clearer connection to operating performanceand shareholder value. Share options are a good example of how a wily C&B strategy can make areal impact on the bottom line. Because companies do not have to deduct thecost of options from their income (as they must with salaries), they have oftenproved a useful tool to pump up profits in the short term. But even leavingthese semi-shady considerations to one side, it is clear that the discipline isin line to become the main bridge between the “softer” side of HR andthe “harder” financial side of business. As such it could be thespecialism to go for if you want to get on the fast-track. “A good C&Bspecialist could well be a front-runner to take on an HR directorship,”says William M Mercer senior consultant David Wreford. Even better, the pay is good: up to 12 per cent higher than equivalent HRdisciplines, according to CIPD reward adviser Nick Page. He puts the averageannual salary at £37k (according to Salary Survey Publications, the figure ismore like £47k). This disparity is partly down to straightforward supply anddemand – these people are still thin on the ground. But it also reflects thepeculiarly difficult nature of the job. As Page points out, “It’s a broadremit”, that can encompass quasi-industrial relations as well aspolicy-making and tailoring incentives to business strategy. At present the discipline continues to attract many more men than women. Insome organisations it remains so unpopular that individuals are often”volunteered” into the role, says Page. “Companies often rotateit in training schemes to try and get people interested”. The problem, hebelieves, is “that it’s still seen, wrongly, as a number-crunchingjob” – a perception heightened by the preponderance of high-level C&Bspecialists with financial backgrounds. “But now we’re seeing more HRgeneralists moving into positions” – a trend the CIPD is encouraging bymaking comp & bens a compulsory part of its main HR qualification. So on the whole, promotion prospects look sound – although the best peoplemay find themselves at loggerheads with employers who want to keep them wherethey are (that supply and demand problem again). Many C&B experts findtheir way into general management and a high percentage find a niche inconsulting. With a growing number of organisations now signing up to the buzzphrase ofthe moment – “total rewards” – there is no doubt that C&B is abroadening role at the heart of the new corporate agenda.

Cold weather veggies

first_imgNow is the time for home gardeners to start preparing fall gardens of cool-season vegetables. If you planted a summer vegetable garden, use your lawn mower to chop up these plants. Incorporate these plants, along with a balanced fertilizer such as 10-10-10, into your fall garden plot with a tiller. Fall gardens in Georgia can be very challenging to get cool-season vegetables through the end of summer. It’s a delicate balance in starting them early enough to allow cool-season vegetables to mature (50 to 60 days) before a hard frost and getting them through the end of a hot, dry summer. Ideally, start seeds in August for broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, collards, kale, turnips, radishes, spinach, lettuce, beets and onions. Use a store-bought potting mix to start seeds in containers, flats or trays. Place the seeds in a partially shaded spot, keep them watered and you will have seedlings ready to transplant in September. Most vegetables can be purchased as seedlings from garden centers ready to transplant if you don’t want to start from seeds. Onion sets can be transplanted later in October. Keeping young seedlings watered is critical to getting them established. Also keep a sharp eye out for pest problems such as insects, diseases and weeds. These pests will continue to flourish in the warm temperatures and high humidity. A layer of newspaper and mulch between rows can avoid a lot of weed problems and help conserve soil moisture. Contact your local University of Georgia Cooperative Extension office at 1-800-ASK-UGA1 for more information on growing fall vegetable gardens.last_img read more

Dwight Asset wanted to thank and honor Laura for more than two decades of service to our company and the community with these gifts, said David J. Thompson, Dwight s CEO and President. Supporting the EMC and the project they are currently working on with the Population Media Center and the United Nations Population Fund to create an e-game designed to help reduce violence against women, fit perfectly with Laura s desire to make a significant difference in the community.The goal of the project, dubbed Breakaway, is to engage and educate boys ages 10-13 through episodic, interactive game and social networking applications delivered globally via web and mobile technology. The game uses skill-building soccer gameplay with a narrative designed to encourage positive attitudes and behaviors in combating violence against women worldwide. Plans call for Breakaway to make its debut this summer at the FIFA World Cup in South Africa in June.  Dagan, who lives in South Hero with her husband, Barry, has been a member of the Champlain College Board of Trustees since 2006 and will continue to serve in that role. I am inspired by the Champlain College students, the activities at the EMC and how the Breakaway project is already changing lives around the world, said Dagan.  The results of these gifts will be far reaching and represent a perfect conclusion to the wonderful career I have enjoyed at Dwight.Under her leadership, Dwight Asset was active in reaching out to the communities in which Dwight s employees work and live by supporting various charitable organizations, educational institutions and the arts. Over the years, the firm has targeted children and families, aging and wellness and historical and land preservation, for its contributions and volunteer time.Champlain s Emergent Media Center, located in the Champlain Mill in Winooski, works directly with industry, public institutions and non-profits, to provide a laboratory/studio environment for discovering concepts, processes and applications in electronic and video games and emergent media. At the heart of the EMC s educational value are two key objectives, DeMarle explained, To enable Champlain students to become thoughtful leaders in areas of technology, media and learning; and to help define the future of immersive mediums and technologies.The EMC brings together Champlain students and faculty in collaboration with industry professionals to also work on projects such as the Cystic Fibrosis breath biofeedback game for the UVM College of Medicine, the Visualize Burlington 3D mapping project with the City of Burlington and a virtual archeology museum in conjunction with the State of Vermont Agency of Commerce and Division of Historic Preservation. Champlain College was founded in 1878 and currently has nearly 2,000 undergraduate students.
