Attracting and retaining the most talented employees is essential for long-term organizational success.  An important component to attracting and retaining such employees is the design and implementation of an effective compensation and benefit system.

In the final project, you are to assume the role of a highly regarded human resource consultant hired to review, analyze, and revise the compensation and benefit system utilized by your city’s largest employer, Holland Enterprises. The firm employs 3,500 employees, but since 2007 has lost 25% of its staff.  Exit interviews indicate the primary reason a majority of these employees have resigned is because of a compensation and benefit system that is perceived to be unfair and uncompetitive in the marketplace.
