If employment negotiation is in your future, or you’re newly entering the workforce, gather round while compensation expert Rod Kelly explains “total compensation”—salary or wages plus “incentives”—what companies provide to attract and retain quality employees. Those incentives can be as valuable as cold, hard cash, but can be hard to compare and just plain tricky to understand. Insurance, leave, retirement, education benefits, pre-tax options, payroll deductions, deferred compensation, company provided equipment – oh my! Rod explains it all: wages, salaries and incentives –so that you can get the most out of negotiating and benefiting from your total compensation package.
