30-40% of the total income is a good barometer for what employee benefits cost an employer. Besides the viable "benefits" there are holidays, vacation pay, sick day pay, state unemployment insurance and social security withholdings that the employee never sees, but which the employer must match. Total compensation, the benefits and compensation that a company provides to employees, requires constant monitoring to ensure competitiveness in the marketplace and appropriateness for the employee population.

Ellen was engaged to assist my firm in a review and restructuring of the compensation system for our more experienced professionals. She conducted her work in a very professional manner and gained the respect of all personnel involved. She presented information for consideration in a clear and concise manner and had many creative ideas that we implemented. She was very timely in completing her work and keeping me well informed of her progress and planned activities. Her fees are very reasonable and she is a delightful person to work with.
