[ OCT] 27 - Design a Practical Salary Structure and Employees’ Benefit Scheme for Small-Medium Enterprises, 2.00pm - 6.00pm

In a competitive labor market, the Small-and-Medium Enterprises (SMEs) might not have the rich resources as larger companies in attracting and retaining talents.

The first starting point is for enlightened SMEs to develop a useful and practical compensation and benefit scheme. Doing so is fundamental for SMEs in achieving organizational growth and business expansion. Without putting in place this scheme, SMEs will always be plagued by the difficulty in hiring staff and the concern of employees turnover. This workshop will provide SMEs with a down-to-earth approach in designing a compensation and benefit system to enhance its competitiveness in recruiting and retaining its employees.
