    The proper compensation of staff is a key recruitment and retention tool, but can be a complex and difficult part of the human resources practitioner’s role. Different industries, budgets, leader capabilities and talent strategy objectives all contribute to the complexities of developing and administering compensation. The objective of this session is to provide participants with some practical tools and resources on how to set up a program that meets their organization’s objectives.

    Speaker:  Sheila Seccurro, Director, Compensation Special Projects, WVU Division of Human Resources

    For the past nine years, Sheila has lead the group that is responsible for the development, administration and maintenance of classification and pay programs for all non-faculty employees at West Virginia University and all regional campuses.

    Sheila has considerable experience in Human Resources and leadership positions, especially in compensation and benefits.   She started her professional career in Human Resources at West Virginia University as a Compensation Analyst and then moved to Consolidated Natural Gas Transmission (now known as Dominion Resources) to expand her expertise in compensation.  From there, she joined Monongalia Health System, in Morgantown, WV as the Benefits and Compensation Manager and was later promoted to the Director of Human Resources where she was responsible for all corporate human resources functions, as well as child care, employee health, and employee wellness programs.  In May, 2007 she returned to West Virginia University to lead the compensation administration unit.   Her accomplishments include developing and administering various types of compensation structures, self-funded and insured employee benefits programs, return to work programs, wellness and absence management programs.

    She is a WV native, growing up in Fairmont WV and a WVU alumna with degrees in Psychology and Business Management.  She is a Certified Compensation Professional (CCP) and a Certified Employee Benefits Specialist (CEBS).  She has presented at several national conferences such as the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources (CUPA-HR), the American Society of Healthcare Human Resources Administrators (ASHHRA) and various national employee benefits conferences.  She has also taught compensation and benefits for Pierpont Community and Technical College in Fairmont, WV.
