Globalization, increasing governmental regulations, rapid technological advances and growing competition are transforming business around the world. The combination of these factors makes designing and administering effective and cost-efficient compensation and benefit plans increasingly complex—yet critically vital to a company’s ability to successfully compete and thrive in the global marketplace.

KPMG LLP’s (KPMG) Global Reward Services (GRS) professionals can help your organization meet the challenges associated with global employee reward program design, implementation, administration, tax effectiveness and compliance. Whether managing costs, improving performance, evaluating global aspects or attracting and retaining talent, KPMG’s experienced team can help your company throughout the life cycle of your total rewards program.

Some ways in which we can assist you include:

Compensation Consulting – Our professionals bring extensive experience with strategy, design and implementation of both executive and broad-based compensation programs, including tax implications to both the individual and the company.
