At Scotts Miracle-Gro we think people are like plants....in the right place you will grow and flourish. Are you an advocate of making the world a more beautiful place by inspiring others, championing new ideas and being intellectually curious? Are you not afraid to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty? If so, then we want you as part of our Scotts family...the world's largest marketer of branded consumer lawn and garden care products!

We are looking for a Compensation Manager who will grow at our Corporate Office in Marysville, Ohio.

At Scotts Miracle-Gro, Compensation Managers act as advocates for their business partners and conduct themselves with integrity through their work in support of compensation programs. They have strong interpersonal skills and are approachable, proactive, results oriented, responsive, and trustworthy.

Proven experience directly within the compensation specialty is key to your success in this role, but true success cannot be achieved without having a desire for problem solving, the ability to face challenges head on, developing creative solutions and maintaining flexibility in all situations.

Your contributions to the team will include:

  • Assisting in the development, design, communication, implementation and administration of compensation programs, policies and procedures, in support of the business, including:

  • Advising management on compensation actions for employees.
  • Responsibility for developing and distributing regular reporting of compensation activity to the business.

While this list illustrates some of the key responsibilities, your desire to learn, grow and lead will shape how the role develops.

The perfect person will have:

  • 3 - 5 years of compensation experience.
  • B.S. in: business administration, accounting, finance, human resource management or organizational development.
  • A working knowledge of HR Systems and related reporting (Workday experience is a plus).
  • Knowledge of federal & state regulations pertaining to compensation structure and design.
  • Experience in project management, equity plan administration, and development or administration of expat or global mobility programs (preferred not required).

You will excel in this role if you:

  • Are a self-starter that proactively identifies opportunities and takes the initiative to find solutions.

  • Demonstrate strong interpersonal skills and the ability to interact with employees at all levels of the organization and work effectively as a member of cross functional Human Resources teams.

  • Are detail oriented and possess excellent data assessment and analytical skills.

  • Adapt to changing priorities, meet deadlines and manage priorities in a fast-paced work environment.

  • Have the ability to maintain highly confidential information in a professional manner.

What we do for our associates (just to list a few cool ones):

  • Offer extremely competitive benefits including: Health, Dental and Vision coverage.
  • Onsite wellness center which includes: state of the art fitness facility, Walgreen’s pharmacy and Doctor’s office.
  • Beautiful campus and corporate offices designed like a log cabin offering free coffee, chef run cafe and the best crushed ice!
