Regression Analysis in Compensation

By TrainHR (other events)

Monday, November 5 2018 10:00 AM 11:30 AM

The TrainHR Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

In this webinar we will build a pay structure using hypothetical pay survey data.

Why should you Attend: Learn how to build a pay structure with regression analysis. Pay lines are created using this technique that form the basis for the establishment of pay range midpoints in the pay structure. These pay lines can be manipulated in consideration of the importance of various job classifications in your organization. Using this method will enable you to explain what you have done, and what it means to your employees. 

Areas Covered in the Session: In the process you will learn:

What data to use from pay surveys you possess
The importance of benchmark jobs and their associated data
How much survey data to use for building the pay structure
What a "weighted average" is and why it is important
What to use as a measure of the pay range midpoint: "weighted averages" or "medians"?
The difference between "regression analysis" and "correlation analysis?"
How wide pay ranges should be in percentage terms
The ideal range spread for "midpoint to midpoint spreads"
What the "seed data" should be for the development of pay ranges
How to test and integrate your employee pay rates into the new pay structure
How often to update your pay structures
