Smart Compensation Planning Softwares are in demand. And here's why!

“Today, we have robust cloud-based compensation software that can completely automate the entire complex activities of the Total Rewards teams.”

by  Sachin Bajaj, Founder & Managing Director, Compport



The endless impossibilities of crunching numbers to create that perfect model (and yes, accompanied by equally endless possibilities of making errors); spending months together to prepare the roll-out of the compensation review process; incorporating last-minute comp change requests from the management; racing against time to catch the month-end payroll; spending sleepless night to distribute e-letters...well, well, well…this is the story of every C&B professional around the world who has not leveraged best in class HR Tech solutions.

It’s quite intriguing that a high-impact function such as “compensation planning” (that almost always consumes a sizable part of the organisation’s budget) is accorded the least priority in the Digital HR journey. Wonder why? Well, the answer is Total Rewards specialists believe that it is almost impossible to automate the complex function they manage. Is that true? Well, definitely not.

Today, we have robust cloud-based compensation software that can completely automate the entire complex activities of the Total Rewards teams. And these smart HR Tech solutions can effectively deliver on the following compensation planning activities seamlessly:

  • Dynamic compensation modeling year-on-year,
  • Manage a variety of rewards programs simultaneously such as Salary Review, Bonus Plans, Sales Incentive Plans, Equity Programs and Instant Rewards.
  • Change the processes as and when required.
  • Manage last-minute changes by stakeholders and sometimes even during the process
  • Enable seamless communication to employees to share full value propositions and create the right perception.


Key benefits of leveraging Compensation Management software:

  1. Strategic pay scale decisions (including an analytics-based rewards approach) can help organisations increase talent attraction, workforce satisfaction, and engagement, and reduce employee turnover dramatically
  2. Simplifies global implementations of complex total C&B policies, procedures, regulations, etc.
  3. Drastic reduction in paperwork and spreadsheet management time, thereby increasing the efficiency of the HR team manifold
  4. Provide a centralized place to manage all tasks related to employee compensation, giving all users a common experience for various programs.
  5. Support accurate and timely pay-related decisions through product features such as review and reporting tools, automated budget controls, manager decision support, and centralized planning dashboard.
  6. A dollar saved is a dollar earned. Valuable dollars for the organisation are saved as manual calculation and resultant errors become a thing of the past

Globally, while the pandemic has provided a strong flip to performance management solutions, there has been a resultant downstream spurt in the interest for compensation software solutions too. This has been triggered mainly due to market-shifting factors such as data-driven decision making, and an increasing need for efficient compensation policies and talent retention models. Organizations are increasingly deploying such smart HRTech solutions to view and alter related policies if required, and efficiently plan rewards, bonuses, and promotions for their employees.
