Executives who craft compensation and benefits programs for global companies must take into account not only the economies of countries in which they do business, but also cultural and managerial norms that may differ wildly from those at home. This council focuses on the issues of local nationals as well as expatriate employees. Some recent topics discussed:

  • Compensation and benefits best practices in China
  • Global severance
  • Worldwide incentive/variable compensation plans

The responsibilities of international compensation executives have grown as international assignments have become part of executive development. Our candid and confidential exchanges help us to identify better ways to use compensation to improve both practical success and retention of critical talent.

I have been a member of The Council for International Compensation and Benefits for the past 11 years. During that time I've found the quality of the members to be outstanding, the opportunity to discuss critical HR issues with such a qualified group of individuals is high value-add for my company and my own leadership development. The interactive exchanges provide valuable insights, challenge existing thinking, and open up your mind to creative solutions. The Conference Board contacts who manage the activities are all "first-class" people who ensure every company has the opportunity to maximize its learnings from participation in the Council.
