Compensation and Benefit Package
The organization recompenses the workers based on their level. Hence, we are “concerned with offering financial rewards and incentives” (Adeoye, 1, p. 346). The human resource assistant will be paid a salary amounting to not less than $38,100. Bonuses will also be issued at the end of every financial year to motivate workers to fulfill their obligations effectively.
Findings and recommendations of the Society for Human Resource Management have always formed the basis for our employee benefits. The organization enlightened us about the relationship between incentives and job satisfaction (The Society for Human Resource Management, 2). Therefore, the benefits package for this position will include paid vacation (to ensure the employees’ work-life balance), retirement, and medical insurance. However, the worker will be expected to pay part of the medical coverage.
