AGB Search offers the Compensation Evaluation Service (CES) to help our clients establish appropriate and effective compensation levels for top institutional leaders. Colleges and universities must be judicious in approaching executive pay to attract and retain top talent, as well as stand up to scrutiny.
Using the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources (CUPA-HR) data on higher education compensation, the CES helps institutions set executive pay and benefits at sound and competitive levels.
The customized CES analysis and report includes:
Assistance in identifying a set of comparable peer group institutions
Comparison-group salary analyses for a given position or set of positions
Information on benefits and other components of compensation within the peer group
Guidance on additional considerations that should inform decisions about compensation
If requested, the CES can also provide:
Assistance with the development of a compensation package
Support for the development of a statement of compensation philosophy
Counsel on and a letter attesting to the institution’s compliance with law and best practice
The CES report is provided at a competitive price, in accordance with the institution’s budget.
To discuss how the CES can help your institution, contact Joseph Johnston, Ph.D. or call 202.776.0827.
“We found their methodology to be very comprehensive, and their process both flexible and responsive. Most importantly—the breadth, depth and quality of the products and advice they provided was extremely invaluable to our Compensation Committee and Board—not only in helping us assess presidential compensation, but also in helping us refine our executive compensation and related governance processes.”
