“Compensation management is not an easy thing to do but this training was able to help me mirror myself and my organization: what are the things we need to check, to stop and start doing. [It was] a good venue to hear how other organizations are doing compensation management.”
“Facilitation was awesome! I liked the way the facilitators took us through the sessions at the workshop. The workshop answered lots of ‘why?’ in compensation processes & procedures. I have personally gained enormous skills in compensation management from it; and the experienced group of participants from different countries and mostly International organizations.”
“I am much better enlightened on how to handle compensation and benefits matters. My take away from the course is how to create a pay scale and ensure it meets your needs as an organization. [I learned how to] place more emphasis on the job groups that matter to an organization and [align it to] the mission and values of my organization. I will definitely recommend this course to HR personnel.”
Birches Group is pleased to announce the 2019 schedule for our Compensation Management Workshops.

The Birches Group salary surveys, which are now being used by over 300 NGOs and other public sector organizations in 148 countries, will be our primary market data reference in the workshops. These surveys are consistent references to labor market data used by organizations in order to manage compensation across multiple countries and from year to year. The availability of the data has illuminated the need in most organizations to develop good practices in using data well, in order to guide good management decisions. These workshops are one step we are taking to help you build those good practices for your organization.
