Course Description:

This course examines the design of strategic compensation and benefits structures that meet organizational goals and increase efficacy through employee recruitment, engagement, and retention. Students will explore the relationship between positions and compensation, including consideration of requisite knowledge, skills, and task analysis. Additional topics include demographic and industry changes impacting the workforce, the role of performance measures and incentives, and non-monetary compensation. Recommended prior learning: Human Resource Management.

Essential Objectives:

1. Distinguish between hourly wage, salary and contract-based employee compensation structures and discuss the legal considerations of each.
2. Identify and calculate total compensation costs within an organization.
3. Describe the job evaluation and analysis process including determination of requisite knowledge and skills, task analysis, and credentialing to determine appropriate compensation.
4. Explain how different state and federal laws impact employee pay and compensation including the Equal Pay Act, Fair Labor Standards Act and the Federal Employees Compensation Act.
5. Discuss the role of periodic compensation analysis which includes consideration of internal and external factors to ensure organizational competitiveness in recruitment and retention.
6. Evaluate options for common benefit package components including health, education, security, and retirement benefits.
7. Analyze the role of non-monetary benefits and options which provide value to employees, including flexible work environments and systems of employee recognition and development.

Accessibility Services for Students with Disabilities: CCV strives to mitigate barriers to course access for students with documented disabilities. To request accommodations, please

  1. Provide disability documentation to the Accessibility Coordinator at your academic center.
  2. Request an appointment to meet with accessibility coordinator to discuss your request and create an accommodation plan.
  3. Once created, students will share the accommodation plan with faculty. Please note, faculty cannot make disability accommodations outside of this process.

Academic Honesty: CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.
