Navigating Minimum Wage Increases [Video]

Posted by Amy Jennings on Mar 21, 2017 11:13:05 AM

With minimum wage increases occurring in several states, we anticipate considerable disruption in compensation rates.

With compliance and maintaining equitable payroll programs keeping you awake at night, here are a few tips to manage this transition.

Identify the jobs paid below the minimum wage and the pay grades where range minimums will need to move. Do you need to eliminate a grade and make pay range adjustments to maintain internal equity?

It can be a difficult balancing act to alleviate compression, so you should consider competitive pay increases and incentives to your star performers.

Prepare back-up plans to your back-up plans. Map out different possibilities of how to update your compensation program and consider what impact each will have in the future.
