How can we earn more and evaluate the “total rewards” of a position?
Join Kevin Hallock for a “Chats in the Stacks” book talk about wages, wage differences across groups, wage inequality, executive and "superstar" pay, compensation in nonprofits and the cost of compensation to organizations versus the value placed on it by employees. In his new book “Pay: Why People Earn What They Earn and What You Can Do Now To Make More” (Cambridge University Press, October, 2012), Hallock demystifies the world of compensation and identifies the total rewards, including job benefits, opportunities for growth, working conditions, and job stability. With better communication and an understanding of compensation, both employees and organizations can achieve their goals and objectives.
Kevin Hallock is the Donald C. Opatrny '74 Chair of Cornell's Department of Economics and ILR's Joseph R. Rich '80 Professor of Economics and of Human Resources Studies. He is also director of ILR's Institute for Compensation Studies.
Books will be available for purchase and signing.
