POE Group Aligns Total Rewards Program with Business Goals for $1.5B International Manufacturer and Distributor of Home Products


The company did not have a common approach to their total rewards programs across their seven country footprint. This led to a lack of understanding of their labor costs, inconsistency in salary administration processes, and did not promote a unified culture.
