"Our new Compensation Studies certificate program is a strong addition to ILR's growing portfolio of online education offerings. It expands access to the school's deep expertise in human resources management," said Linda Barrington, Executive Director of the Institute for Compensation Studies at Cornell's ILR School and co-author of the new certificate program, along with instructing faculty member Stephanie Thomas, Ph.D. and Kevin Hallock, Ph.D., the Kenneth F. Kahn '69 Dean and Joseph R. Rich '80 Professor of Economics and Human Resource Studies.
The Compensation Studies certificate is comprised of four courses that can be completed over two months. Students undertake a comprehensive, performance-based approach to compensation—aligning compensation to organizational goals, creating fair and profitable employee incentives, and probing the impact of plans on performance, profits, and people. Courses draw upon authoritative research shaping global pay-for-performance strategies, and include interactive tools and guidance on using a research-based compensation model, addressing cultural considerations, and defining employee populations by talent and role to optimize return on performance pay.
Cornell's new certificate program is especially relevant for entry- to intermediate-level HR or compensation professionals, and for small business leaders seeking to structure and realign compensation with business strategy.
