Cost Containment and Employee Engagement-Can These Competing Goals Be Reconciled?

May 1, 2011 | By Mike Ryan

But with compensation comprising up to 70% of a company’s cost structure, economic conditions have forced many companies to freeze or make multiple downward adjustments to their base and variable pay programs.
