SCORE: Offers and Salaries – How to Know If You Are Paying Fairly

February 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EST


Whether you are making your first hire, or assessing if your employee’s salary is competitive, you may wonder whether the compensation, benefits, and non-monetary incentives of your roles are attracting the right talent. In this workshop, we’ll dive into proper classification of employees, paying competitively for your geographic region, and employee perception of fairness based on pay equity theories. You’ll leave this session with tools to avoid legal quagmires and know how to create an attractive compensation and benefits package that retains talented team members.

In this session, we will discuss

Why pay equity matters
Legal compliance (federal, state, and FL specific laws)
External equity
Cost of living and geographic location
Supply and demand (impact of COVID)
Internal equity
Pay across your organization
CEO to average worker ratio
When external and internal equity conflict
Compensation best practices
Plus a Q&A session at the end for all your compensation questions!

Our Presenter Dawn Sipley

With nearly 20 years in HR, nine of those in business ownership, Dawn understands the pressures of entrepreneurship. She began her professional career after graduating from UCF with her business degree in 2004. Since then, she has supported hundreds of companies in Central Florida with their hiring needs either as a corporate recruiter, staffing company, or consultant. It was during those years in staffing that the concept of Sipley the Best was born. Instead of the agency experience where they simply do the grunt work for you, StB targets companies that truly care about the culture of the company, dedicated to attracting diverse but like-minded talent, while choosing to value the current team. Dawn is married to Jason Sipley, her high school prom date and lives in Sanford with their two children, Tawn and Bray. As a family, Team Sipley enjoys the outdoors through paddle boarding, kayaking, camping, fishing, hunting, oystering, scalloping, foraging, and minimalist hiking. They are also active, serving members of Action Church in Sanford. Dawn also serves the Central Florida Christian Chamber of Commerce as the Ambassador Chairwoman and as a Board of Directors for Act to Act. Through these 3 organizations and regular speaking events, Dawn is able to serve her community nearly 500 hours annually, while still running a successful HR firm.
