Agreed! On both the contribution to the people decisions and the fact that if you like compensation you probably won't like being a generalist!

I don't think you can separate the numbers from the human element. The numbers and ensuing structure are a guide and help to establish some order in what could be chaos - if left entirely to the humans.

Since each human brings his/her own skills and competencies it is the human qualities that ultimately determine the compensation levels.

Also to account for the business flexibility needed, we have to be able to include what the company values as a subjective factor, as determined by humans.

Compensation may be based on numbers but is dependent on the human elements.

Great points - thanks for sharing them here, Karen.
