    The pandemic’s impact on a growing distributed workforce has been highlighted by many different talking heads. However, no one has really addressed the long-term consequences to the total rewards equation, specifically the future of setting compensation levels.

    I believe there will be a grouping of jobs/roles into four different approaches in setting compensation levels. 

    • 1. Locally focused roles
    • 2. Professional roles
    • 3. National roles
    • 4. Global roles
