No matter how fulfilling a job is or how well regarded the company is, the truth is that people go there to earn a living. In competitive sectors, compensation is perhaps the number one factor in securing the very best employees. That’s why many companies have dedicated compensation managers. Their job is to assess the true value of a position to the company, and to weigh this up against the skill sets of the personnel performing the task. It’s a delicate job, calculating salaries that retain and attract the best while remaining competitive and profitable, but get it right and the compensation manager can become a highly valuable member of the team.
Benefits are also a key factor in attracting great employees. This is also part of the C&B manager’s remit, creating complete packages that help to bring in top talent, to give them attractive packages and to ensure compensation and benefits are reviewed regularly to ensure a satisfied team.
Experience in compensation and benefits management will be of great help, as the task is a very skilled one, requiring balance and judgement. A knowledge of what motivates employees in the sector is useful, so experience in the industry will be of benefit.
The task requires some complex mathematical skills to ensure that employees and their roles are given exact valuations, but it’s not just about the amount of money a person is personally bringing into the company; it is also about factoring in things such as competitor salaries and benefits, plus the costs of high staff turnover. Reporting to the board is a regular part of the job, as your decisions need to go through financial scrutiny. You will need the strength of character to argue your case when directors are questioning your assessments or calculations.

Comprising counties like Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire, the East Midlands is a wonderful choice for those seeking Compensation & Benefits Manager vacancies.
During the 17th and 18th centuries, many scientific discoveries were made in the East Midlands. It was a pivotal place for the Industrial Revolution, being home to what many call the first modern factory - John Smedley's textile production facility at Lea Bridge, which was opened in 1794.
Some of the earliest military tanks were manufactured in Lincoln, while jet engines were also developed in the region - with the first jet aircraft flying from RAF Cranwell in 1941.
Meanwhile, Derby was home to a Rolls-Royce factory that produced Merlin aero-engines until 1950, as well as a railway works. The Corby Steelworks in Northamptonshire was one of the largest facilities of its type in the middle of the 20th century.
Today, manufacturing is still a major part of the economy of the East Midlands. A number of big-name firms operate in the region, including Rolls-Royce, Siemens, Triumph Motorcycles, Toyota, Caterpillar and LaFarge Aggregates. There's also Mercedes AMG High Performance Powertrains, which builds Formula One engines in Brixworth.
What's more, Bombardier Transportation in Derby produces new rolling stock for London Underground, and is the only remaining train manufacturer in the UK - it also builds Turbo Star and ElectroStar overground units.
