CREW Vancouver Event Thoughtful Co Workshop Manager Compensation Training 2023 09 06 WEB

Workshop – Manager Compensation Training

Wednesday, Sep 6, 2023

Join CREW Vancouver for the fourth workshop in a series led by The Thoughtful Co. This workshop for managers is focused on how to have compensation conversations with those under your management.

CREW Vancouver is committed to our mission of connecting Vancouver’s commercial real estate industry to advance women leaders.

With the success of our first workshop on the topic of negotiation in 2022, we are pleased to offer a workshop series for 2023 consisting of five workshops scheduled throughout the year.

Workshop Overview

One of the hardest parts of becoming a people manager is having to decide on and communicate compensation increases for your team. In this workshop, we’ll discuss how to have these compensation conversations in a candid, productive way, without sacrificing who you are as a leader. There will be time for group discussion and Q&A to ensure all your questions are answered.

Key takeaways from this workshop include:

  • Preparing for compensation conversations outside of year-end.
  • How to frame year-end compensation discussions with your team.
  • Biases you should be aware of when making compensation decisions.
  • Strategies on getting creative for budget-constrained situations.
  • Sharing stories on tough conversations.

This workshop is led by Jillian Climie and Sophie Warwick, Co-Founders of The Thoughtful Co.

Jillian has spent her career advising and leading teams in executive compensation and corporate governance, both as a consultant, and in-house at two global retailers. Most recently at Lululemon, she led the global equity compensation and executive compensation programs. After taking a pause, she realized she wanted more of three things in her professional life: thoroughness, passion, and freedom. She Co-Founded The Thoughtful Co so she can leverage her niche and technical experience, coupled with her passion for gender equity, to empower women to get paid what they deserve.

Sophie has spent her career in structural engineering consulting, where she designed multi-use and residential buildings from early conception to project completion. In 2018, she Co-Founded Women in Consulting Engineering (WCE), a non-profit organization to support and empower women in engineering. At The Thoughtful Co., she specializes in developing in-house gender equity policies and chairing Employee Resource Groups and advocacy groups. Additionally, she uses her data analysis expertise from her engineering background to define targets and track growth and retention.
