Ventana Research Presented on Maximizing the Value of Compensation for Diversity and Talent Management at PeopleFluent Global User Conference WISDOM 2016

CEO and Chief Research Officer Mark Smith Led Breakout Session on Best Practices for Ensuring Organizations are Compensating Fairly and in Compliance with Diversity Requirements

WALTHAM, Mass. – April 19, 2016 – PeopleFluent®, a leading human capital management technology company, today announced discussion highlights from the company’s global user conference WISDOM 2016 breakout session “Maximizing the Value of Compensation for Diversity and Talent Management,” featuring CEO and Chief Research Officer Mark Smith at Ventana Research. Smith presented on how proactive compensation management can support compliance and inclusion initiatives, such as ensuring organizations are compensating fairly and in compliance with diversity requirements, including gender and race.

Smith presented findings that show in order to be truly successful in supporting these initiatives, compensation needs to be available to and managed by finance, and it should provide the team the information it needs to execute on financial governance initiatives, performance processes, and overall workforce planning and analytics needs. Smith also discussed how compensation management should provide availability to workers through total compensation statements that represent what an organization is compensating and what an employer is providing to workers. The interactive session offered insight into the new generation of requirements for compensation management, and why organizations will be at significant risk without a dedicated system that can meet a broad set of needs and also be integrated with their financial and talent management processes.

In his current role, he is responsible for the overall direction of Ventana Research and drives the global research agenda, covering both business and technology areas.
