The current economic environment has created a “new normal” in public sector compensation. Greater competition for fewer knowledge workers; the Millennial generation of employees who value work-life balance – and do not favor long-term retention; and baby boomers aging out of the workforce, making succession planning a must, have all contributed to this ‘new normal.’

So, what is the new normal? Is it cost cutting, different salaries, benefits or pensions based on hire date? The new normal encompasses the concept of Total Rewards and the use of control points and performance pay for compensation management.

Find out how this trend in public sector compensation affects your organization and how you can get out in front of it in this critical course. Discussion topics include trends associated with the regulatory and labor environments, as well as public sector pay management, pay progression, performance pay and total rewards.
