Crowdsourced Compensation Data:

Do We Trust It?

LinkedIn, Glassdoor and other social media sites have recently launched platforms for users to submit and research compensation data for both current and potential roles in the market. Compensation professionals must remain informed of compensation data trends and the sources employees, managers and HR business partners are exposed to. This session will explore the emergence of crowdsourced compensation data and the methodologies used by major suppliers of this information. Attendees will be equipped with tools to navigate effectively the introduction of new data sources into conversations around pay equity as well as how to identify sources that should not be used.

Learning objectives:

Attendees of this presentation will have a clear understanding of:

  1. Compensation survey methodology and how to identify data integrity issues
  2. How to choose the right data and evangelize an organizational compensation philosophy 
  3. The benefits of embracing pay transparency and how to communicate how pay decisions are made to employees, hiring managers, candidate and recruiters

8:30-10:00 am - Presentation

This year, we’re proud to partner with the Oregon CASA Network, an organization whose mission is to support and promote court-appointed volunteers who work with children that have experienced abuse or neglect.  These volunteers support each child’s case until it is closed, and the child is in a safe, permanent home. 

The CEO herself, Debra Gilmore, will be presenting to share a little about the organization and how Total Rewards PDX and you can help. You can help contribute to this organization by shopping at the Columbia Sportswear Employee Store (passes will be available for every attendee!).  While their focus is on helping children through tough times in their lives through CASAs and not about gifts, you may also bring clothing or toy donations.  Debra will ensure they get delivered to children in the network that are in need this holiday season.
