Connecting the Paths

According to Gallup, the top reason employees left their roles during the Great Resignation was “not seeing opportunities for development.” But focusing on development alone is missing a key driver. According to LinkedIn, the number one reason people are leaving their jobs in 2023 is for higher paying jobs. To effectively address these key drivers for resignation, organizations must integrate development opportunities with compensation. Acera helps connect these critical levers to drive greater talent retention, talent agility and value creation for the organization.

By aligning your employees’ skills with the organization’s needs, you can identify and retain critical talent against changing market demands. Creating agile career pathways and paying people for their impact reinforces and rewards their value in the organization.

Widening the Lens of Possibility

What an organization rewards and recognizes communicates what it values. If an organization promotes people or rewards behaviors that do not align with its stated values, employees are left confused about what behaviors are expected and what the organization truly values.

We help our clients connect the dots between talent and compensation strategies, linking them to positive business outcomes. This alignment creates clarity for employees about what the organization truly values. Through this widened lens, the organization can chart new avenues of possibility that lead to business growth.

"It was a pleasure to work with the Acera team. I greatly appreciated the level of expertise, insights and patience that they brought to our organization."

"Within my former company, we were scattered in terms of compensation philosophy but through Acera’s leadership, together, we built a strong compensation philosophy that aligned with our organizational values and goals. By having a detailed compensation strategy we were able to engage with our people to explain how their contributions fit into the organization and how and why the employee is rewarded. We also gained reliable insight into the market value of our roles as they exist today and how that will continue to evolve through future growth and funding. This will help us make better talent and financial decisions going forward."
