The Widening Skills Gap and its Connection to Compensation

Finding skilled labor is a top concern for most companies. In PayScale’s 2013 Compensation Best Practices Survey, 67% of all companies reported having a hard time filling skilled job positions. The main reason? A lack of qualified job applicants. Though unemployment is still high, the reported skills gap shows us that there are many job categories in high demand. Learning how to get pay right for those high-value employees is essential for success both in recruiting and retention.

This strategic webinar, by Mykkah Herner, M.A., CCP, will address these important issues to help HR professionals and business leaders address the skills gap in 2013:

  • Which industries are feeling the most pain from the skills gap.
  • How companies can find and recruit those hard-to-find skilled employees.
  • What you must do to retain valuable talent.
  • Developing and training programs that cultivate existing employees.
  • How a strategic compensation plan will help and the process to set one up.
  • Defining the critical action steps for success.

Too many organizations have fallen into the same old way of doing compensation while the world has shifted gears. Now, more than ever before, getting pay right is the key to getting and keeping a skilled workforce. Learn how to keep ahead of your competition with key ideas about how to bridge the skills gap in 2013.
