Video Blog #8 - Catherine Dovey Interview

I had the pleasure of interviewing Compensation Works founder and principal Catherine Dovey yesterday. Catherine and I have known each other for 10+ years. I was very interested in discussing the current state of Total Rewards with her. Catherine has 20+ years of experience in designing and managing base pay plans, incentive plans, performance management systems and job evaluation systems. She has extensive experience in union and non-union environments in private companies and nonprofit and public-sector organizations. So I knew she would have some insightful comments and observations on the state of the human resources and compensation profession.

Next week's nextcompTV show schedule has changed. We'll be broadcasting on Thursday, July 30th at Noon. The topic will be "Base pay versus Incentives". I'll play an excerpt of the conversation with Catherine that didn't make it into the video and then Bob and I will expand on that topic. Bob and my trip to the coast has been postponed until August 10th, so we'll have some video from that trip next month.

Tune into nextcompTV on UStream live on Thursday, July 30th at Noon PST:
