Employee Compensation Advisory Services


The Current Situation

While much time and attention are focused on executive pay, it is important to focus on reward strategies for the rest of your organization. Are you missing the chance to achieve a greater return on what is likely your single biggest compensation expense — the non-executive employee population?

Odyssey Advisors works with senior executives and human resources professionals from companies of all sizes and types, including not-for-profits, in a variety of industries.

Our consultants’ experience and expertise allow us to create rewards programs to benefit employees at various levels including executive, managers and the general staff. This ensures the creation of integrated compensation programs that align with your organization’s strategy.

The Odyssey Approach

Compensation can ignite your organizational strategy and unlock untapped long-term value. The Odyssey approach is to learn about your unique situation and design a program that meets your needs. We seek to fully understand your organization, strategy, culture and needs. Ultimately, Odyssey strives to balance organization and human resource objectives to help you get closer to meeting your goals.
