HR Compensation Professional
March 04, 2008
Compensation professionals always seem to be in demand, regardless of what’s happening in the economy, and there always seems to be a shortage of well-qualified people in this area. The job requires strong technical skills as well as good people skills – a rare combination.
Compensation professionals design reward systems that help companies attract, retain and motivate their employees. This work requires number crunching and creativity. Because compensation packages are not one-size-fits-all products, people in this area need to think outside the box and be able to perform a little magic when both candidates and money are scarce.
