The challenge

Delivering and tracking effective compensation today is complex - and often very manual

In the face of a significant labor shortage, we understand you may be feeling the pressure to not only attract but also retain your top talent and skilled labor.

It can be hard to deliver benefits and compensation employees want, without increasing costs. Not to mention the headache of tracking, managing, and collecting (if necessary) those funds in a scalable way.  


Talent Shortage

82% of respondents said they were actively hiring, however, 80% were having difficulty finding workers.

High Turnover

U.S. businesses lose at least $1 trillion each year due to voluntary employee turnover, much of which exiting workers say their managers or organizations could have prevented.




86% of employees surveyed say they would take an extra lump sum cash bonus (beyond existing compensation) in exchange for agreeing to stay with their company for a specified period of time.

Traditional retention-based compensation creates administrative headaches and unnecessary expense


Manual Tracking

Many track sign-on and retention bonuses manually, making automation and scalable edits difficult.


Clawbacks are expensive to enforce and many end up unenforceable.

Tax Complexities

Paying taxes up front leads to countless hours wasted on preventable W2 corrections.

It costs up to 40% of an employee’s base salary to hire a new employee with benefits.
