The Compensation Design and Pay-for-Performance Masterclass 3.0 is returning for its third year. This Masterclass aims to provide you with the information you need to make changes to your grading and salary structure. You will have an opportunity to test various ideas and to establish what may work for you. You will also be given access to various tools and techniques, as well as information on the latest trends and developments both in the region and indeed globally. This course will involve working on practical case studies to gain detailed hands-on experience using the various tools and techniques that will be discussed throughout the course.
