Who We Are

An effectively designed compensation strategy can accelerate business growth. Here’s why.


Through our decades of work with company leaders, one thing has become clear: businesses struggle to determine what they get in return for the enormous investment they make in compensation. However, when designed effectively, organizations can offer compensation packages that are compelling to employees and accelerate a real return for shareholders.

The Problem

Too many companies are satisfied with the compensation status quo. They base their compensation systems on untested assumptions, oversimplified compensation benchmarking, anecdotal information, and incorrect premises. Without awareness of what works and why, their compensation strategies end up being average at best. Some even do damage.

In an effort to offset these issues, many companies simply pour money into increased salaries or additional employee benefits, which are already expensive. Not only does this approach provoke an unwinnable “race to the top,” it fails to account for each company’s unique business model and strategy. 

The ramifications of these missteps are serious: 

  • Recruitment challenges 
  • Unmotivated employees 
  • Talent attrition 
  • Misaligned goals and objectives 
  • Lackluster shareholder returns

The Answer

A complete and compelling total rewards program that doesn’t just incentivize employees, it galvanizes them—and turns compensation into a growth driver. VisionLink is the compensation strategy company that makes that possible.
