SALARY SCALE CASE STUDY: INSTITUTE OF INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION (IIE)
The Institute of International Education developed a strong, market-driven approach to compensation for their field offices, including salary structures and a consistent grading system. But they lacked the internal resources to maintain the structures across a very diverse group of countries. They faced additional challenges in selected markets due to economic volatility, and the response time from headquarters HR was slow. IIE engaged Birches Group to assist in maintaining the salary structures and to guide the organization towards a policy-driven approach for special measures.
