TAMIU SBDC Offers Seminar on Creating
Compensation & Benefits Program Aug. 21

The Texas A&M International University Small Business Development Center (TAMIU-SBDC) will provide a targeted Seminar for business owners on how to create a compensation and benefits program on Tuesday, Aug. 21, 2007 from 1:30 - 4:30 p.m. at TAMIU's Western Hemispheric Trade Center, room 125. 

Registration fee is $30. Those registering prior to Friday, Aug. 17 receive a $5 discount.

Employee benefits are a crucial factor in getting quality employees to work for small businesses. In most cases, the small business owner cannot afford to offer many benefits. Small business owners can, however, offer incentives to attract quality employees.

The seminar will be lead by Cynthia Ruiz from At Work Personnel and will include the following:

  • Objectives of the compensation and benefits program
  • Laws affecting compensation
  • Laws affecting benefits
  • Types of pay structures
  • Deferred compensation
  • Mandated benefits
  • Voluntary benefits
  • Summary.
