Exploring Employee Compensation Packages (Idea Exchange) 609, Level 6, Seattle Convention Center

Compensation is the foundation of supporting employees. In addition to paying a living wage, there are creative non-monetary benefits that stores can offer employees to support them and to demonstrate their value. Facilitated by bookstore owners who have had some success with exploring, building, and launching creative benefit programs for their staff, this idea exchange is an opportunity to crowdsource solutions and share successes. (Managers)

Speakers: Lane Jacobson, Paulina Springs Books (Sisters, Oregon); Jamie Thomas, Women & Children First (Chicago, Illinois)
