Business Need


The name of the project is Revamping of Compensation and Benefits Project. As the new


human resource manager, the company want to revamp compensation and benefits packages to


its employees so that they feel motivated and to improve their productivity in the company and


that of the overall organization. The employee?s current salaries and remuneration is inadequate


to meet their basic needs and requirements. By revamping the compensation and benefits


packages, it will improve the employee?s productivity through motivation as well as increasing


the employee?s engagement to their jobs and the company (Caruth and Handlogten, 2001).


The company's current compensation package is below the national standards as


stipulated in the labor law acts. Moreover, the bonus compensation plan which only reward the


compelling work performance is not enough to motivate the employees of the company given the


workload that they perform. Therefore, after completion of the project, each departmental head


will oversee the implementation of the related aspects of the employee?s compensation and


benefits packages in their particular departments. PROJECT CHARTER 3 A good reward and compensation plan will increase the overall performance of the


company and increase its competitive advantage in the market. Besides, through improved


employee?s performance, it will enhance employees' recognition in the whole organization. Thus,


it will improve the employee?s morale and make it the best company to work for.

human resource department in revamping the employees' compensation and benefits package to


improve the employee?s motivation and productivity. The proposed package should be capable of


recognizing the employee?s outstanding performance in a way which supports the core values,


mission and priorities of the company.

Human Resource manager. The team shall be responsible for planning, developing and


overseeing the project to determine how much the company pays its employees and how the

The scope of compensation and benefit pan will cut across all the departments in the


company. Besides, it will ensure linkage between other employees systems found in the human


resource department. These other systems include performance management, reward and


recognition, and employees' timesheet. During different phases of the project, the team will be


reporting their developments to the head of human resource department whom will then report to


the management board. The team will report the project?s results and recommendations to the


company?s management. Moreover, the team anticipates fiscal budget recommendations. The


management board will offer its support to the team by carrying out subsequent meetings. This


will ensure the team finishes its goals and objectives within the stipulated time.


The compensation and benefits plan will be used for all the employees of the company


from the junior level such as laborers to senior employees such as the C.E.O of the company.


Besides, the project will involve cross checking the employees compensation and benefits with


labor union and the law to ensure that they are commensurate and are in accordance with the law.


Constraints/Assumptions/Dependencies PROJECT CHARTER 5 The assumption is that increasing employee?s benefits and compensations, will motivate


them. Another assumption is that the project will improve the employee?s productivity as well


the organization.

Thus, financial resources may not be available as needed and alternative solution such as


borrowing may be required.

before the project can be initiated.

make them see it as an entitlement. The other risk is the occurrence of the operational and risk


market events which might hinder the completion of the project.

v. 6 Plan and recommend compensation and benefit system, which contributes to


continuity, equity, and consistency of competencies and performances in the


company. Regulatory cost/Impact

consider. First, the Fair Labor Standard Act (FLSA). This is one of the most important piece


compensation legislation. It governs the minimum wage, overtime pay, equal pay, record keeping


which might impact the non-exempt employees and the overall project ("State Changes in


Compensation Laws," 2000).


Second is the Equal Pay Act of 1963. This is was an amendment of FLSA, which


prohibits differences in compensation based on sex for men and women in the same work place


whose jobs are similar
