The skills and talents needed for companies to succeed in today's business environment are evolving, resulting in new HR challenges for traditional companies. New economy talent may pose issues around new or specific skill sets, as well as a workforce with differing priorities and needs. To compete for new economy talent, HR strategies need to be different than those used in the past. We will explore the new employment proposition, and alternative pay schemes that traditional businesses are using – most often needing to go beyond the basics. We will explore internal equity implications. As an added topic, this discussion will also touch on the gender pay gap and the role of diversity and inclusion in pay programs.
