More Than Report Sharing: A New Merit Matrix for Talent Value – You'll see a big difference.

For decades, pay for performance has taken the form of raising base salaries based on ratings and compa-ratios; this creates differentiation, but puts enormous pressure on performance ratings and often fails to retain tomorrow's key talent. Come see a new model that aligns annual raises with talent value, a person’s forward-looking value to the company.

This conference features survey results on expertise and assignee packages, latest market trends and benchmarks, trends on pay adjustments over 15 countries including Hong Kong, China, Macau, Taiwan and India. It is aimed at helping HR practitioners, C&B specialists and business leaders to re-examine policies to match with corporate needs. Hundreds of peers join us annually in reviewing the past economic conditions and its impact on staff. Participants are also inspired by speakers’ pioneering insights into reshaping HR and C&B management for the future.

You will enjoy a great day of learning and networking opportunities, with strategies and visions shared by field experts and academia, including economists, HR professionals, legal advisors, as well as pay & benefits experts.
