        Ventana Research Launches Total Compensation Management Benchmark Research

        Latest research program will illuminate the best practices and trends for organizations

        Ventana Research today launched its latest benchmark research initiative into Total VR_TotalCompensationManagement_BenchmarkLogoCompensation Management. The purpose of this research is to determine the awareness of organizations, their willingness to adopt modern total compensation management systems and their intentions. It will provide valuable insights by identifying market opportunities to accelerate organizations’ adoption of total compensation management systems while also identifying the impediments to doing so as well as benefits and best practices developed by those that have advanced their processes and systems since our previous research.

        Improvement of compensation processes has become a part of business strategy and planning conversations in executive-level management meetings. However, this does not mean that many organizations have succeeding in doing it. In our previous research the largest percentage of participants (47%) cited inconsistent execution across divisions and departments as an impediment motivating investments in compensation management. Most organizations need to know which process and systems changes will make their compensation practices more strategic and effective. Executives and managers need help to determine the set of capabilities that could play a key role in reengineering the organization’s approach to compensation management.

        This research aims to determine market opportunities, approaches and organizational requirements, trends and opportunities to manage compensation processes through systems that automate and improve performance. Gaining an understanding of what the next generation of compensation systems can do is critical to advancing the sophistication of both purchasers and the marketplace.

        Our new benchmark research gathers that knowledge by examining how organizations are managing these essential components of total compensation management in these areas: Base pay; Merit pay and Bonuses; Market adjustments; Variable Pay; non-financial Rewards; Department-Specific Compensation; Stock and Incentive Stock Option (ISO); Executive Compensation; Benchmarking; Pay for Performance; Planning Benefits; Paid Time Off or Leave and Analytics and Reporting.

        “Total Compensation Management is increasingly complex given the combination of less predictable compensation budgets and efforts to support both individual and enterprise goals and needs,” said Steve Goldberg, VP & Research Director at Ventana Research. "These challenges and requirements for compensation will lead to our work to continue to bring best practices and insights to help our clients and the HCM community."
