Money Talks
Presented by Scott Kelly, Compensation Director, HealthTrust

No one likes to talk about compensation unless they’re talking about raises or bonuses. But for HR professionals, it’s a topic we can’t avoid. So it’s critical for us to understand the link between pay programs and business strategy. It’s even more important that we speak the same language and use words anyone can understand. In this session, you’ll learn how to talk to people in your organization about compensation, no matter what their role or job level.

Specifically, you’ll walk away knowing how to:

  • Speak to the fundamentals of compensation using common language
  • Partner with total rewards colleagues to make the most of your compensation dollars
  • Connect pay solutions with business objectives
  • Have productive conversations with managers and employees about individual compensation


Schedule: Doors open at 7:15 am for registration, networking and Buffet breakfast. Presentation starts promptly at 8:00.
Breakfast:

  • Members: $18 by end of business Monday, February 24, $28 afterwards.*
  • Future Members: $29 by end of business Monday, February 24, $39 afterwards.* (See below)**
