TechAmerica - Employee Compensation - What Companies are Planning for in 2010
Oregon Zoo

The economic downturn has caused companies to deploy cost-saving strategies such as pay freezes, pay decreases, layoffs, forced vacations and reduced benefits amongst other initiatives.

Panelists: - Bill Erdle, President, William J. Erdle Compensation Consulting, LLC - Bryan Fix, Head of Human Resources, SolarWorld USA - Kirsten Solomon, Director of Compensation and Benefits, FLIR Systems
