As real estate talent management specialists, deverellsmith are acutely aware that the ability to balance the needs of attracting and retaining talent, along with fiscal responsibility of your company, is a key priority for anyone who runs a real estate business.
During the current COVID-19 pandemic, with many businesses having to make difficult decisions about their cost base, and labour often being the largest single cost they incur, having a handle on your employee compensation has become even more crucial.
Pay too much and you could be achieving a poor ROI and put unnecessary strain on your finances, especially when market conditions turn
Pay too little, or offer an noncompetitive benefits package, and you risk not being able to attract top talent whilst also losing your best people to your competitors.
How you choose to compensate your employees can not only have an impact on your finances, and your ability to attract and retain staff, but also on your overall company culture.
Compensating employees on the wrong outputs can also be detrimental to your brand reputation and customer service, especially in sales-based roles where individuals might put their own desire for compensation ahead of the customer’s experience.
But finding out what is competitive, and how people can best be compensated to drive output and customer satisfaction, can be tricky!
Businesses in the same sector can operate with very different internal promotion criteria and job titles – one firm’s Managing Director is another firm’s Head of Department, with potentially widely different responsibilities and compensation.
Firms like Glassdoor and Payscale have come onto the scene but do they really paint an accurate picture, and give you enough detail and insight to make crucial decisions about your own employee compensation?
