Base Compensation Program Development

Base Pay Program Development | CBIZ Compensation Consulting

Market-based compensation is a cornerstone best practice for reducing high turnover, low morale, and inconsistent performance. At CBIZ Compensation Consulting, we help clients develop and implement a customized base pay structure that aligns with their:

  • Talent acquisition strategies to attract, recruit and secure top candidates
  • Total rewards programs that support retention of high-performing talent
  • Long-term strategic plans and initiatives
  • Organization’s compensation philosophies
  • Budgeting and business goals
  • Industry-competitive challenges

Designing the right base pay program ensures pay levels for jobs are externally competitive, internally equitable, and establish a rational basis for future pay decisions.

A Customized Approach to Designing Base Pay Programs

Our combination of industry expertise, data resources, and customized solutions helps you build the best compensation frameworks, make more informed pay decisions, and execute an effective compensation strategy that drives organizational success.

  • Creating a strong compensation philosophy
  • Performing job evaluations
  • Conducting external market analysis (published &/or private survey data)
  • Developing salary structure(s)
  • Calculating financial impact
  • Crafting an implementation plan
  • Providing annual structure update support
