OVERVIEW OF COMPENSATION BENEFITS
Clearpoint Advisors, LLC applies a holistic approach to working with clients to develop and implement tailored compensation strategies and plans by understanding your business goals and objectives. Each company should have a total compensation strategy that sets forth the company’s philosophy on issues such as:
- Pay Positioning: Level of compensation relative to competition
- Pay Mix: Balancing the appropriate mix of fixed pay and variable pay
- Performance Measures: Combination of financial, market, and strategic performance measures
- Performance Benchmarks: Use of historical, projected, or peer performance as standards of success
- Key Cultural Objectives: Rule of subjective measures
Clearpoint Advisors, LLC works with clients to identify appropriate peers for financial performance and pay benchmarking. We analyze competitive compensation data from several sources, including public documents (i.e., proxy statements, 10-Ks), published surveys, and best practice research maintained in our database, which contains the compensation practices of well-known best practice companies. Our process includes local and industry market analyses of pay information and an extensive review of all aspects of regional and competitor compensation programs. We use comparative data from national and regional external databases and regional, proprietary, internal sources.
