When a soldier is deployed over seas’ they receive an additional pay, known as hazardous duty pay. The soldier is working overseas sometimes in a war situation, and sometimes in a rescue mission capacity. The soldier is exposed to dangers that they are not faced with on the home front so they are compensated more because of the risk. Another example is shift work, often times people who are working off hour shifts receive shift differential pay rate, which is paid for the inconvenience of working for example the” grave yard” shift. As a Human Resources manager who is developing a benefits plan for an employee that is working abroad there are many things that need to be considered; in order to achieve compensation that meets the needs of the employee.

...Compensation Philosophy Paper Name ________ Professor ______ Introduction Compensation is viewed differently, depending on the individual persons perspective (e.g. employee, manager, stockholders, etc.). An employee may view compensation as what is owed to him or her for work performed, while a manager may view pay as an expense. In order for an organization to have an effective compensation strategy, it must consider the various perspectives when creating the organizations compensation strategy. Milkovich, Newman, and Gerhart, authors of Compensation, define Compensation as, “All forms of financial returns and tangible services and benefits employees receive as part of an employment relationship,” (2011, p. 10). In other words, salary is not the only consideration when determining compensation. The cost of such benefits as: employee healthcare, dental, life insurance, retirement plans, etc., must be considered when creating a compensation system. There are many factors an organization must consider when developing a compensation strategy; however, for a compensation strategy to be effective it must; align with organizational goals, reward employee performance, and consider fairness in pay. Analysis When developing a compensation strategy, an organization needs to ensure that its compensation strategy aligns with organizational goals. For instance, if an organizational goal is to increase sales of a particular product in the upcoming year (as compared to the...

...1. Describe Microsoft's overall reporting strategy. Why had the company adopted this strategy and why was the SEC concerned about it? Answer: 1) Hiding profits – The success of Microsoft provided incentives in hiding success from regulators and competitors. There is high incentive to reduce their performance given the history of the company with regulatory intervention. Therefore, the company’s policy of software capitalization occurred before serious regulatory intervention. 2) Avoiding complacency – This argument suggests that the company to avoid complacency should reduce its earnings performance and hence accompany financial success. The philosophy of the company of constructive paranoia about the competitive position and policy of Gates maintains cash balances are consistent with avoiding complacency. It has a better explanation because of the tendency of the company to “talk down” analysts’ expectations instead of explanation for choosing conservative policies. 3) Competitive weapon – As a leader of the industry, Microsoft has the ability to practices and influences accounting policies within the industry. As it is the strongest player in the industry, therefore it makes difficult for other companies to show good performance even by setting conditions that reduces their assets and earnings. 4) Signaling – By reporting strong earnings numbers and choosing conservative accounting policies, Microsoft is able to signal the strength of finance.

This paper also introduces a plan that would allow monetary compensation of college athletes in the United States. A survey was distributed to 14 males of the Suny College at Brockport basketball team Pros and Cons of Compensation for NCAA Division I Student Athletes The exploits of student-athletes in sports have variously been advanced as generating a lot of dollars in forms of revenues for their respective institutions, which has generally raised the question as to why they shouldn’t be compensated for their sporting prowess. Student-athletes generate tens of millions of dollars for their respective athletic departments and ideally then should be reimbursed. However, as per the guidelines of the National Collegiate Athletics Associations (NCAA), athletes are not supposed to receive any commercial use of their personas and likenesses and are indeed not expected to gain any monetary compensation for their sporting engagements. This has generally been interpreted to mean that they cannot enter into agreements for endorsements in their sporting activities as has been the case with professional engagements. Instead, students are expected to benefit from the payment for tuition fees from their sporting......

...Military Compensation What is the Total Compensation? Before I take this course, I never even bother to try understanding the total compensation. While I am taking this course and learning the materials, I started to view and understand what could be the total compensation as part of the organization’s strategic planning in human resources management and operations. There are many ways to pay the compensation to its employees. Many people, especially the soldiers care about their base pay. If a soldier’s base pay is $18,000 a year then is it really less than a civilian who gets $20,000 a year as an individual’s total compensation? Most of soldiers and include myself didn’t understand the concept of “what is the Total Compensation.” After I learned this course, I started understand the total compensation and wanted to find out what actually the soldiers getting for their total compensation. The U.S. Army was established over 200 years and increased its size since then. The U.S. Army was founded on 14 June 1775, when the Continental Congress authorized enlistment of riflemen to serve the United Colonies for one year.

...Organizations recognize compensation as an important factor in employee satisfaction. Many companies are committed to providing compensation packages that are competitive and reward great performers for the results that they achieve. Today, organizations have moved away from the times where end of the year increases were automatically given, regardless of how good or bad one performs. We are operating in times where salary, bonuses, and other incentives are directly linked employee performance. While many associates may believe pay raises and other incentives are entitled, organizations are placing more emphasis on employee performance to determine if salary increases are deserved. Organizations use different methods in granting pay raises for employees.

Many years ago your Human Resource department was there to file your pre-employment paperwork and assist with benefits and process payroll.
