July 5, 2011 - PRLog -- REDMOND, WA, — What happens in Vegas, doesn’t necessarily stay in Vegas—not when more than 14,000 human resource professionals converge on the scene. Attendees of the 2011 Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Annual Conference, June 26-29, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, left Sin City, no doubt, with tired feet and plenty of swag, but more importantly, with fresh ideas and tools to enhance their  human resources strategies.

As a leading provider of compensation data and analysis, ERI Economic Research Institute (http://www.erieri.com) was on site to meet with a wide range of professionals in various industries, including corporate compensation, relocation and human resource specialists, as well as independent consultants.

“Attendees visiting ERI’s booth were particularly interested in our Salary Assessor®,” (http://www.erieri.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=ERISA.Main) said Nancy Turner, Sales Manager. “The question on many of their minds was, ‘Where does your data come from?’”

ERI conducts over 100 industry-specific and job function salary surveys.  In addition, ERI’s analyses are derived from millions of data points gathered annually from digitized public records, available third party salary surveys, and licensed U.K., Canadian, and U.S. salary surveys and datasets, all of which are employer-provided data.

“As these specialists are gearing up for hiring, they’re checking sources of compensation data to ensure their decisions are sound,” added Turner.

“Other attendees expressed interest in the Salary Assessor® for help with benchmarking and consolidating salary structures after acquisitions,” said Malak Kazan, Senior Associate.  

Current ERI Assessor Series® (http://www.erieri.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=CAS.Main) subscribers visiting with ERI representatives noted the software’s ease-of-use and robust datasets. Craig Woolcott, Director of Employee Relations and Total Rewards at Quanex Building Products, Corp., said ERI has been a “key source” of salary data for the company.

“In addition to standard compensation data, we use the cost-of-living resource. The service is great, and the data is reliable,” said Woolcott.

Cathy Petty, Human Resources Manager at Chatsworth Products, mentioned the value of ERI’s cost-of-living data, the Relocation Assessor®.

“ERI salary tools are a great, quick way to know what I need to hire or promote for my manufacturing and professional positions,” said Petty. “I also use the Geographic Assessor® to compare cost of living between manufacturing sites when transferring employees. Great and easy tools!”

Frank Huttula, Director of Human Resources at Jet Support Services, Inc., put it simply:

“We love ERI! ERI Economic Research Institute is one of the most comprehensive and valuable tools that HR professionals can add to their toolkit. It is very easy to use and provides you with an added edge in ensuring appropriate compensation for your staff, regardless of where they are in the world.”

Despite the enormity of the SHRM conference and the distractions of Las Vegas, the focused enthusiasm generated during concurrent sessions, at keynote speeches, and on the exhibition hall floor, shows the dedication of HR professionals to improve their practices. ERI remains committed to equipping managers and HR professionals with effective, reliable tools to help them achieve their compensation planning goals.

SHRM’s 2012 Conference will be held in Atlanta, GA, June 24-27, at the Georgia World Congress Center.
