Compensation & Incentives


Compensation Management is an integral part of the management of the organization. Compensation Management contributes to the overall success of the organization in several ways. Effective compensation management programs recognize the value of competitive pay and incentives, include the measurement of the contribution made by your human resources, and most importantly have an investment view of payroll costs.

Scope And Deliverables

All too often we find that existing compensation and incentive systems are counterproductive to the desired goals of the organization. We’ll work with your Human Resources group to design systems that will accelerate the achievement of desired results.

SatiStar's Experience Makes The Difference!

  • . . . worked extremely well with the departmental and site managers . . . goal oriented and met the objectives set within the quoted budget and ensured the results were attained for the Company.

  • The guys from SatiStar did more in one week than we were able to do in 6 months.

  • Achieving ISO registration was far less onerous than we thought, our employees really rallied to the cause. The registration effort really brought us closer together as a team, and SatiStar really came through for us when we needed them.

  • We started this process a year ago with Mickey helping us create a spaghetti map of our processes on the whiteboard, and then his team guided us through their streamlining methodology and got us to where we are today. Our processes now look nothing like the spaghetti map – and we’re much more efficient today

  • This projected cycle time reduction of over 80% annual cost savings amounting to over 3% of sales, one-time savings of roughly $10 million, and working capital reduction of roughly $30 million really have us excited!

  • An outstanding success with Motorola’s vendor audit! What made this an exceptional achievement is that it typically takes 4 to 5 attempts to pass this audit. SatiStar’s expertise made it easy to avoid all the extra attempts.
