Total Pay: Compensation and Benefits - Now and Into the Future is an opportunity to explore the field of employee compensation—with its five components— from both practical, as well as academic, perspectives. This book treats an important HR area—sometimes considered dry and incomprehensible—in an accessible and engaging way.

In addition to addressing underlying factors that create the foundation for the design of any total pay program, individual chapters give in-depth attention to compensation links, including communication, performance management and motivation.

All readers, regardless of HR or college experience level, will find this comprehensive approach to the topic of total pay really helpful. It is a workplace opportunity to determine the mix that is best suited for what every organization hopes to accomplish, without over- or under- spending.

Although primarily intended as a college and university-level textbook, HR professionals looking for a one-stop source for answers to compensation and benefit questions should consider this source. Others, looking for a career change or transfer to HR, who are interested in exploring this field, will find it very valuable and approachable as well.
