Compensation Solutions

We ensure you have the right tools

Amler Associates are experts on designing compensation strategies and helping you implement strategies to further incent and motivate employees. We have experience in designing Sales Plan Compensation strategies which customize to your business needs, not just “off the shelf” programs. We can assist and help you with executive pay programs including creative approaches to long term incentive strategies and stock.

Our team can assist you with innovative deferred compensation strategies which include both executive and employee populations. We can develop, as required, the appropriate variable pay and bonus pay programs for noncommissioned employees and help you merge the concept of base pay and variable pay into a more cohesive Total Reward strategy for you company. We can show you how to design employee base programs which help retain your key employees and connect pay opportunities to both company and individual performance. We can support your needs on properly classifying employees including support for Job Descriptions, banding/grading, pay structure development, and benchmarking to the market.

When it comes to training and communications our team has been put through the test over the years to deliver the very best packages and support. This also includes ensuring you have the best and most current compensation tools for managers.

Benefits Solutions

We have all your Benefits needs covered

Amler Associates will provide consultative support for assisting and managing issues related to the Affordable Care Act and its impacts to your firm. We can support pension plan designs which best meets the needs of your organization including deferred pay programs and 401(k). We can develop affordable plan designs for Health and Wellness Benefits and identify affordable insurance offerings including Long Term Care.  To help facilitate, we can conduct RFPs (Request for Proposals) to ensure we seek the best provider for your needs; this would also include selecting the best payroll administrators and timekeeping vendors in the marketplace. We can ensure proper governance on your programs, help you identify key legal requirements and fiduciary responsibilities.

Our support would include appropriate benchmarking in your industry to best calibrate to your marketplace and competitors. In addition, we are affiliated with lower cost actuaries, and outsourced providers whom provide outstanding client services on an-ongoing basis for payroll administration, and benefits support for employees.

Mergers & Acquisitions

Your transition is in great hands

Amler Associates can help you though these critical transitions with solid planning and know-how. Human Resources are often viewed as the “lynch-pin” of the success (or failure) of such missions. The mission typically requires two fundamental talents, excellence in project management and excellence in Human Resource design and deployment. We can provide both skill and/or support in these functions. Having completed successfully divestitures and mergers, our team can bring to bear the correct phasing to these projects, a deep understanding of marketplace practices, and the communication and training support to make the project a success. 

Typically we segment the HR functional areas for review including HR Programs and Polices, Compensation and Benefits, HRIT and Payroll,  communications, Education and Learning to name the key areas. We can help form teams around each of these areas and help guide the project management for each function as well as the overall “Executive Reviews”. We can support the development of the “Employee Matter Agreements” working with both legal and all entities involved in the mission.
