  11. 11. CONCLUSION • How employees are “compensated” takes many forms – salary, benefits, working conditions, challenging/stimulating work, co-workers, etc. The right “mix” for each person is different • Pay policies will differ for every employer – some will focus on cash compensation and some will focus on Total Compensation • The employer’s main goal is structuring compensation and benefit programs is to be able to attract and retain the right employees needed to help the employer be competitive
