Strong emphasis on total compensation extends throughout the entire book: in the strategy chapter (2), in the market survey chapters (7 & 8), and in the benefits and performance-based pay chapters. Why is this important? The business environment is more competitive. 'It is not only HOW MUCH you pay, but HOW you pay, that matters.' (i.e., not only base pay, but also work-life benefits, and variable pay and stock options that are tied to the performance of the individual and the company.)
Discussion of Compensation Strategies: how (and why) managers design a compensation strategy, how all compensation decisions are based on that strategy, and how these decisions impact competitive advantage and fair treatment for employees. This is important because it shows the integration of all decisions, highlights the reason for doing them, makes them consistent, and focuses on the results of decisions.
Discussion of up-to-date trends and practices: broad-based stock options, competency development, changes in market surveys, accessibility of pay data on the web, 'living wage', changes in compensations practices in Japan, China, Germany, and other countries.
