Crowdsourced Compensation Data: Do We Trust It?

LinkedIn, Glassdoor and other social media sites have recently launched platforms for users to submit and research compensation data for both current and potential roles in the market. Compensation professionals must remain informed of compensation data trends and the sources employees, managers and HR business partners are exposed to. This session will explore the emergence of crowdsourced compensation data and the methodologies used by major suppliers of this information. Attendees will be equipped with tools to navigate effectively the introduction of new data sources into conversations around pay equity as well as how to identify sources that should not be used.

Jeremy Spake’s experience ranges both as a business leader and consultant in compensation, mergers & acquisitions, workforce analytics, and strategic planning. Areas of focus have included change initiatives in compensation planning; short & long-term incentive plan design; market intelligence, merit budgeting & salary structure development; executive change-in-control, retention & severance planning; HRIS systems integration; optimization of compensation strategies via technology solutions. 

High Performance Energy Management

Participants will learn to better understand how to increase organizational productivity as well as increase employee wellbeing through Energy Management. In this presentation you will discover how: Rather than working long, concentrated hours, your brain functions at a higher capacity when you work in “pulses” or intervals. Great athletes learn to completely rest and renew and our personal, team and organizational productivity functions in the same way. Our brain is more productive when we give ourselves time to be creative. Our emotions, connection to others and sense of security are important indicators of productivity. This presentation is highly interactive, with lots of audience participation. Walk away with simple, sustainable rituals for yourself and your team.
