Nancy and Team Proved to be the Most Effective Consulting Team I’ve Engaged

While creating the first global compensation strategy at my last emerging growth IoT company, Nancy and her team at Compass Total Rewards were referred to me by a Fortune 50 tech executive.  Her advice and approach were instrumental in allowing me to encompass the values and culture of the company, offer an attractive yet and budget-friendly Total Rewards strategy, set a foundation for scale — while easily earning CEO and BOD approval.  She was a trusted advisor in every sense. From definition of scope, to pricing, to project management, to materials prep and ultimate delivery, Nancy and team proved to be the most effective consulting team I’ve engaged.

Augmenting with Compass Total Rewards was a Huge Benefit.

Our partnership with Nancy and her team was instrumental in overhauling compensation structures under a short timeline.  With my team already at full capacity, augmenting with Compass Total Rewards was a huge benefit.  I really appreciated Nancy staying on top of deliverables through her project management skills and strong sense of ownership.  The overall process was well thought out, and the Compass team was able to adapt to our unique needs and way of doing business.

An Amazing and Uniquely Talented HR Professional

"Nancy is an amazing and uniquely talented HR professional. With a breadth of experience leading compensation, benefits and HRIS teams she is a tremendous strategic thought partner. At the same time, Nancy is pragmatic and business focused in assessing needs and developing practical solutions to immediate business challenges. She helped me create and execute a comprehensive compensation review process grounded in market reference data, build meaningful executive level compensation comparisons, and align Board level support for rigorous disciplines across a complex set of businesses. Nancy is hands-on; she doesn't just offer ideas... she builds solutions. Having worked with Nancy at two companies over a 5 year span, I will absolutely work with her again and would recommend her as one of the top consultants in compensation and benefits."
