Employees’ remuneration is always a strategic and yet sensitive issue for both the company and employee. Although salary or money is commonly perceived as not the only factor that influence employee’s motivation, but it’s hard to neglect that money is the most dominant factor in determining employee’s motivation, working spirit and performance. Implementation of remuneration system in any organization or company will usually face several complex problems. Firstly, (fairness). The measure of internal equity itself is hard to jointly agree, due to the different interests between the company and employees, or among employees. Secondly, problems related to external competitiveness. The measure of competitiveness also is not an easy thing to determine, and could be trapped into subjectivity, depend on what market information is available and to which market is compared. Lastly, problems related to company’s financial capability. The measure of financial capability is usually not treated as open information, and only limited to certain people in top management. This will be a common debate between company and employees, where on the one hand employees feel that the company has a good financial condition, but on the other hand, the company needs to manage its competitive and sustainable cost levels. This course will give skills in designing a remuneration system that fits the purpose and condition of each company, while still maintaining the competitiveness, attractiveness and fairness of the remuneration level.
