Can You Operate a Forklift?

By Laura Morgan, Managing Partner at MorganHR 

How difficult can it be? Most would think that it would be similar to driving a car, that they’re intuitive enough to figure it out on the first try. And they would be wrong. Operating a forklift is much more challenging than it might seem. It requires training and great care to do it well, otherwise, you’ll end up wreaking havoc on the warehouse. It’s a process that is far more complicated than you might think, so let’s leave it to the professionals.  

What else can you think of that is more complicated than you might have originally thought? How about HR? Luckily for you, we have a team of HR experts that are trained to simplify your compensation and organizational design processes. No longer will you have rampant job descriptions, cheap job titles, nor a lack of confidence surrounding your compensation cycles. MorganHR is here to unCOMPlicate things for you and your business.  

It’s no question that comp is complicated. There are all sorts of factors involved in calculating an employee’s pay, including their salaries, bonuses, and benefits. Manually trying to figure out how much an employee will earn can be a headache. Not only do you have to calculate their pay rate and any applicable taxes, but you also need to add up all the other pieces that might be applicable, like overtime wages, commissions, tips – and then find out what their wages will be in different currencies. Imagine how much time you’d save if you had a configurable system to simplify your compensation cycles. SimplyMerit is the cloud-based solution that empowers managers to make informed decisions regarding their employees’ merit, bonus, and equity allocations to ensure that everything feels fair, relevant, and right.  

Are your employees confident in their compensation? It’s the best way to keep them engaged in their career. If you take money off of their worry list, they can spend more time focused on their growth and development both in and out of the office. Compensation conversations can be challenging and complicated. That’s why MorganHR has a team of expert coaches that will help you as a manager fill your toolbox with the skills you need to navigate those conversations efficiently and effectively while keeping your employees happy.  

You might get the hang of driving a forklift, just like you might get the hang of compensation. But why settle for might? Take the guesswork out of the equation and let us unCOMPlicate things for you.
