How Does the POE Group Work With Clients?

We take pride in delivering experienced, independent, and candid compensation advisory services using a collaborative approach. Our client retention ratio is above 90% in the last ten years, indicating the long-term value we provide.

Our engagements begin with gathering quantitative and qualitative information. We develop an understanding of the client’s industry, business drivers, organization, performance, and culture. Data is analyzed from multiple perspectives to provide a comprehensive understanding of an existing program’s strengths and weaknesses. New plan designs are driven by the company’s business strategy and culture.


An important aspect of our consulting approach is collaboration with our clients. We have found that this improves results by better aligning our recommendations to the cultural realities of the organization. Our clients consider us thought partners in designing compensation systems that fit with their organizations.

Executive Compensation Consulting for Florida Companies

The design of an executive compensation plan is a complex process. Each facet of the firm’s regulatory requirements, financial state, and company culture must be carefully considered and integrated into the design of each plan. We help our executive compensation clients make informed decisions by turning complex data into meaningful information.

Companies across Florida want to know how to design compensation plans for their Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) as well as other C-Suite Executives so that they are competitive, incentivizing for the executives and will drive growth for the organization.

Key questions we're asked include:

- What should a CEO compensation package include?

- How much should a CEO in Florida be paid each year?

- Besides salary, how else can we incentivize our CEO and top executives?

- Can you provide comprehensive compensation analysis for CEOs in Florida?

- Do you provide compensation design for Private Businesses or Family Owned Companies?

- Can you provide direction to our board compensation committee?

Employee Compensation Consulting Solutions

Aligning employee compensation systems to the business goals and culture of organizations is an integral step to creating a high performance organization. There are many approaches to consider, each of which communicates a different message to your employees. We can help ensure the messaging hits the mark.

Productive employees are the cornerstone of any highly functioning business. How do the leaders of a company continually find ways to maximize the return on employee compensation? It's done through well designed compensation plans that focus on the correct mix of wages, salaries, benefits, bonuses and other incentives that are related to employee's efforts.

Key questions we're asked include:

- How can we design an employee comp plan to maximize productivity?

- How do we design a comprehensive plan for our 1000 employees?

Sales Force Compensation Consulting Services

We recognize that Florida based companies can have a well-designed sales compensation plan and not achieve desired results.

Large or small, smart businesses know that the overall success of the company can be directly related to the output of the company's sales teams. Sales compensation planning needs to encourage, incentivize and motivate in order to function effectively – both for the salesperson as well as the organization.
