Testimonials from Clients of Carlson Dettmann

CDC led our management team through the entire process, and we concluded with a very comprehensive salary and wage administration process / procedure.  We now can proceed on an annual basis with the proper tools to compensate our employees fairly and to market rates.

CDC has done a tremendous job.  This is the second company that we have implemented their system (base pay, profit participation, commission, short term bonus, long term bonus, operating guidelines) and it works great.  Our employee retention has improved by 25% and employees feel that they are fairly compensated; they also now know what it takes to advance in their careers.

Implementation of the CDC-designed class and pay plan saved the city money, provided a transparent and easy to manage performance based pay plan and improved employee morale.

CDC does its homework and brings solid information to the client.

What we found most valuable is CDC does not offer a ‘one size fits all’ strategy.  Instead, CDC listens and seeks to fully understand the issues and challenges our organization faces, and then works closely to design strategies that solve the problem.

CDC provided the “total package” for us.  Base pay is important, but because our business is so diversified. CDC also handled the profit participation, commission and short term / long term plans for a very diverse group of employees located throughout the United States.
