THE BEST COMPENSATION

When you hear the word “compensation,” money is probably what first comes to mind. Or maybe you think of benefits and bonuses on top of a yearly salary. But compensation goes beyond a salary and benefits. At Definity, we believe that compensation is the whole portfolio, the entire environment including the opportunity provided for growth. The best compensation is greater than a paycheck. Compensation begins with creating an environment of opportunity for employees and includes challenging, teaching, and encouraging your workers. The value of compensation comes from these aspects of their job, rather than just their salary. For an employer, it’s about attracting and retaining the best employees.
