Birches Group technology solutions provide clients with simple, powerful and easy to use tools for managing compensation data, job evaluation, competencies and performance management.

Leading this innovation is our newest human resources management tool for managers, Community™. Community™ is Birches Group’s integrated human resources management methodology and platform. The Community™ methodology is anchored by three factors present in all work – Purpose, Engagement, and Delivery – to support a full range of HR activities, from job design and evaluation, compensation and benefits surveys, skills development and performance management. Users can enter the circle from any of the four solution quadrants: Jobs, Market, Performance, or Skills. Community™ is a web-based platform which makes it accessible for any user.

Imagine having access to salary survey results at your fingertips whenever you need it, wherever in the world you may be.  Indigo™ software from Birches Group delivers survey data to users desktops when its needed.  Using the powerful analytic tools contained in Indigo™, clients can analyze survey results, modify the result by changing percentiles, filtering on jobs or levels, display in different currencies and more.  Data can be exported to Excel with one click, and all reports are formatted for printing and exportable to PDF files.

Our Trends™ technology calculates aging factors to estimate market movement, using a best-fit regression of historical survey results.  Clients can generate aging factors to adjust survey results to a future date, aiding in the management of their compensation programs.

Salary scale development is a challenging but important task that most organizations face on an annual basis.  The Salary Scale Design Module, an optional part of our Indigo™ software, is designed to help clients manage survey data (Birches Group data and data from other providers), and create salary scales using interactive technology that reduces the time required for scale design dramatically.  The module is already in use by our first client, who is using the tool to design their scales in almost 200 countries globally.
