Developing fair and effective wage-fixing practices


Wages are a critical component of any factory’s strategic plan. However, managers often find it challening to balance the company’s financial restraints with workers’ expectations – which is why wages are one of the most controversial issues in labor relations. Undoubtedly the manner in which reward structures are designed has an impact on the general working environment. Despite that, many factories are reluctant to tackle the topic due to the complexity and difficulty of creating a well-designed compensation scheme that is able to attract and retain quality employees. This training introduces managers to the Fair Wage framework, which is a comprehensive approach that includes 12 dimensions of wages, including minimum wage and living wage. The training also encourages the involvement of multiple stakeholders to create a mutual understanding of the remuneration system.
