Back To Compensation Today

PayScale Is Headed to #SHRM17 Conference. See You There?

Topics: Comp Strategy

Next week, June 18 – 21, the PayScale crew is off to New Orleans for SHRM17 Annual Conference and Exposition. We’re excited – we love the chance to talk with customers and future customers. Our theme is Bring Pay Forward, which means transforming comp. We want to pull it out of the shadows and into the future, where people know their worth, transparency fosters trust, and employers know that paying people right is good business.

We’ve got a lot going on this year. Here’s where you can find us:

  1. Stop by our booth. We’ll be at #2118, right in the middle of the hall where all the action is.

    • We’d love to talk to you and hear how things are going at your org. What challenges are you seeing? What cool new thing have you tried lately? Let’s talk.
    • We have a great shirt for you.
    • We have two awesome prizes we’re raffling off:
      • Trip to our own Compference 2017, the modern compensation event featuring over 500 compensation leaders. Spend two beautiful October days in Austin, Texas and learn how to turn comp into competitive advantage.
      • Amazon Echo, a hands-free speaker you control with your voice. It will help bring your music forward along with your pay!
    • We’re really excited to be joined in the booth by a few of our customers this year. They’ll be available to answer questions and get to know you better.
