Katie Busch, SHRM-SCPHR Compensation Consultants LLC, Boynton Beach, Fla.
A Niche Market
Busch specializes in compensation-related work, including plan design, pay equity studies, performance and talent management programs, and incentives administration.
Busch founded her company in 2003 after she decided that she liked consulting as much as compensation work. She learned both while employed by a consulting firm after graduating from Florida Atlantic University. Her employer was hired by DHL Express to design a new wage structure after DHL acquired Airborne Express. Later, when offered the chance to develop a compensation plan for DHL’s South American operations, she agreed—but only if she could take on the assignment as an independent consultant.
Today, she works with five contractors and brings in additional consultants as needed. Her clients range from companies with as few as eight employees to as many as 500, though she also works with divisions of global organizations whose head counts run into the thousands.
An Objective Expert
Usually, organizations reach out to Busch when they lack the ability or expertise to tackle a project in-house. “They may have compensation people, but not enough to develop a plan from scratch,” she explains. “Or they may want an objective third party involved.” That can be especially important when it comes to compensation. “Consulting allows me to be objective. I don’t know the people involved,” she says, which allows her to focus on what’s best for the organization.
