Description: In today's competitive job market, how organizations communicate their compensation and benefits plans can significantly impact employee attraction, retention, and overall business success. This program focuses on the strategies HR leaders from various organizations use to design and effectively communicate their Total Compensation/Total Rewards Systems to employees.

Featuring insights from three of our very own BGSHRM members, this session will explore the components of their Total Compensation System, their communication methods, the impact on employee engagement and retention, and the tangible returns on investment from these efforts. We also encourage participants to share their own experiences and insights, in order to foster a collaborative learning session.

Learning Objectives: 

1. Learn how other organizations have designed and implemented comprehensive rewards systems in a variety of industries, including governmental, construction, and the non-profit space. 

2. Discover the balance of tangible and intangible benefits that contribute to attracting, engaging, and retaining employees. 

3. Identify various methods for effectively communicating compensation and benefits to employees. 

4. Analyze the return on investment (ROI) in terms of improved employee engagement, retention, and recruitment. 

5. Hear real-world examples of how effective communication has positively impacted organizations.

Transfer and Refund Policy

BGSHRM strives to provide quality events that are educational in content and rich in networking opportunities. We place emphasis on the humans in Human Resources and value the shared experience of our peers and comrades who are working to create safe and productive environments for their employees. We have designed chapter meeting fees to be as low as possible. 

Because of rising costs in our community, your regular member registration fee covers the program related expenses and is not a fundraiser for the chapter.  As such, all payments for registration to BGSHRM events are non-refundable. If an event must be rescheduled by the chapter (i.e. severe weather in which travel is prohibited or impractical, our community is placed under pandemic restrictions, etc), we will apply your payment to a future event.

If you are unable to attend a meeting, you may request a transfer to another scheduled event or you may gift your registration to the current event to someone else following the guidelines below. To make a transfer request, please email communications@bgshrm.org.

  • If the transfer request is made before 7 calendar days in advance of the event you may transfer your registration to another scheduled event or gift your registration to the current event to someone else.
  • If the transfer request is made within 7 calendar days in advance of the event, you may gift your registration to someone else. This is a wonderful way to introduce your peers, managers, or leaders to ideas and information that will benefit your organization (and help them understand that HR is a strategy-based role)!
  • If you cannot attend in person, you may utilize the Zoom link sent to all registered attendees to join us online. Event links are sent to your registered email address, please check your spam folders or email filtering systems as we do not honor transfer requests for "lost links." 
  • Individuals who have registered to attend online may not switch to in-person after registration has closed as that is the cutoff date required by the venue for event planning.
  • No transfer requests made after the event has passed will be considered.
