All in Titles and Descriptions

I was speaking to the Head of HR at a small, talent-intensive company. We were discussing the cost of long-term incentives as related to their compensation philosophy of paying between the 50th and 75th percentile. Adding equity effectively and economically is always a challenge.

We have been living in an age of 3% annual increases for several years.  Sometimes it’s a bit more; sometimes it’s a bit less. On average, it’s not too inspiring. We do our best to give a bit more to our best performers, but those in the middle must fend for themselves. It’s not hard for them to find a time machine.
