0 to 100: How Implementing a Compensation Program Transformed our Organization

Date & Time

Thursday, September 20, 2018, 11:30 AM - 12:14 PM

Description

Mission Produce is world’s leading avocado company. Due to Mission's size, one would think a pay program was in effect long ago. However, it wasn’t until 2015 that standardizing pay became a topic of conversation. Before this, compensation was discretionary. After rolling out an equitable pay program via PayScale, the company’s culture transformed from one of distrust to one of transparency.
