Employee remuneration is one of the most vital components of organizational effectiveness (citation). Remuneration costs are a substantial amount of most companies’ cost based and are continuously rising. According to a research by UK accountant UHY Hacker Young, employers across the world pay other employment costs worth nearly 25% of employee salaries (on average). At the same time, most companies do not have an effective compensation scheme. This causes employees to lack motivation and to do the bare minimum in performing their responsibilities (citation).

On the other hand, some businesses also face the challenge of keeping total costs down in their organizations. For example, in Indonesia, a forecast inflation of around 4.2% – 4.3% in 2017 (per Trading Economics and Statista), will result in increasing costs in the coming year.

This means that organizations need to urgently transform their businesses specifically in two key areas: i) employee motivation & compensation and ii) business costs.

In the first of five Corporate Refresher Series, titled “Business Transformation, Effective Compensation, and Cost Management, we will explore three specific topics that are integral to ensuring business agility and competitiveness, motivating employees to work hard and work smart, and keeping business costs under sustainable control.
