Forbes - Real-Time Market Compensation Data Is Not A Panacea
Written by Enrique Esclusa, Co-Founder & Co-CEO, Assemble How do you decide what to pay an employee? This is a simple and important question with a complex answer. With a volatile labor market, global inflation, and the continued rise of distributed work, it has never been more difficult to answer this question.
Forbes - For An Empathetic People Strategy, Start With Compensation
Written by Lisa Wallace, Cofounder & Co-CEO Assemble Compensation is the single most important component of the employee-employer relationship, and as such, should be the bedrock of an organization’s people strategy. Despite its central importance, it is common for even well-intentioned companies to let building a robust compensation program take a backseat to other initiatives. Doing so is dangerous.

As we head into a year of looming economic uncertainty, HR leaders intent on building effective and inclusive people strategies should begin with compensation first.

Finance teams are tasked with planning, analyzing, and supporting the allocation of a company’s financial resources. Naturally, this has always involved compensation, as it typically represents the largest operating expense for a company. But in this new era, merely overseeing compensation will not suffice — Strategic Finance teams must be deeply involved in understanding compensation, helping drive strategic decisions over their company’s most important investment: their people.
