A major pharmaceutical company desired to create a compensation communication toolkit to provide readily available information on company compensation programs to managers.   Worked with a team of internal subject matter experts to gather and comprehend company programs and policies. Developed a user friendly, web-enabled communication tool linked to the company intranet. The site included information on base pay, variable pay, tips for managers communicating pay, a glossary of compensation terms and frequently asked questions (FAQ’s).  

Compensation Toolkit continues to be a “live” information resource that is modified regularly with up-to-date information and added features.

Our team was brought back to develop a fully interactive online training program for managers based on the toolkit and providing additional learnings and help for communicating compensation.
