Organizations with a workforce that is spread across a large geography are faced with the challenge of maintaining competitive

job rates in local markets. For companies with a large operational workforce, even slight changes in pay rates can result in significant payroll expenses.

Leveraging a Geographic Information System (GIS) helps the compensation administrator better understand

the local market and remain competitive. This white paper is intended for organizations with a large geographic presence that market price jobs or review

market data at a local level.
