8:20am Conference Kick-off

8:30am – 9:30am Trends, Best Practices and the Real World of Pay
Presented by Dan Walter, President/CEO, Performensation
Based on headlines, you might think every company has changed every aspect of pay in just the past few years. Hot "trends" and best practices seem to include pay transparency, the demise of performance reviews, movement away from base pay and to variable pay, extension of the post-termination life of equity compensation and much more. This opening session will separate ideas from actions and hopes from realities. We will also look out three, five and ten years to address where we may really be headed. Find out where best practices are evolving into "next practices" (and what's likely to stay pretty much the same). Learn about the one trend and best practice that is part of every successful company's DNA.

9:30 - 9:45am Break

We will discuss strengthening organizational culture, employee retention and company desirability (recruitment). Develop an ability to turn program conception into technology application.
