Finding top candidates for compensation and benefits jobs

A strong compensation and benefits team is vital to many companies, as they help to recruit, motivate and retain top level employees. As part of the HR department, they review and develop policies, while also introducing new schemes into a business.

Recruiting for compensation and benefits roles

Professionals in different compensation and benefits jobs take on different responsibilities, from pinpointing emerging trends to maintaining employee data. However, whether you are recruiting for a compensation consultant, compensation and benefits manager or benefits officer, you should seek candidates with:

  • Broad compensation or benefits background
  • Previous experience carrying out the responsibilities required
  • Up-to-date knowledge of legislation
  • Strong communication skills
  • Good work ethic

You should also be looking for professionals with expertise and experience that relate specifically to the job vacancy.
