Innovative TR Solutions assisted our new Compensation COE in a workforce segmentation project that set a foundation for how we will assess & prioritize compensation decisions going forward. Rebecca & Josh effectively collaborated with us to understand our objectives and timeline and to deliver outstanding business results. They helped us to make sense of a complicated picture and present a story to our leadership team that was based on well documented facts & analysis with strong call-outs. They proved to be a tremendous business partner and professional resource. I highly recommend Innovative TR Solutions to any organization looking for a consulting company with expert knowledge, exceptional communication skills, state-of-the-art total rewards solutions and an easy to work with approach. They went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure our success. We will not hesitate to reach out to Rebecca and team on future compensation initiatives.
Rebecca is the best at what she does. I’ve worked with her at two complex, multi billion dollar companies and she has delivered superior results. I’ve witnessed Rebecca advance the total reward profession through her innovative and creative leadership. She’s a thought leader and difference maker in the TR space. I’m excited to have her consultation here at Brown & Caldwell.”

We hired Rebecca to conduct a compensation market pricing study and build a base pay structure for our non-profit organization with over 100 different positions. Rebecca was professional thorough and used best practices. She took the time to get to know our business and key stakeholders to ensure they understood the positions within our organization. Rebecca presented her findings in a clear and understandable manner, educated the senior leadership team as she went along and made excellent suggestions. The final product was delivered in a timely manner, is sustainable and of high quality.
Whether you need a thought leader around your compensation or benefits strategy, an interim project manager or an extra pair of hands to supplement your Total Rewards team, Rebecca is the person for you. Rebecca is highly knowledgeable and skilled in the design, communication and implementation of total rewards programs. She brings a highly collaborative approach and frames solutions in simple, pragmatic ways, always with an eye on the cost/benefit analysis and financial returns, facilitating executive understanding, approval and support for changes or new programs.
As a Board member and Chairman of the Compensation Committee of a newly public company one of my priorities was rationalizing the compensation structure at the firm and putting it more in line with public peers. I was referred to Rebecca by another Board member who had worked with her in the past and on his recommendation we engaged her to help us put our plans in place. From the moment she started she has been invaluable, not only to the Compensation Committee but to the larger Board and the CEO and his executive team as well. Her perspective on how other firms deal with these issues and how various nuances are received by the market was invaluable and certainly would not have been information that we would otherwise have come across. She quickly came up to speed on the company and identified all the relevant issues that the Board had been discussing and some we had not thought of. She deftly managed a series of difficult conversations with the senior executive team and managed to secure buy-in from them on the basics of the plan before we even discussed it at the Board level which made the entire process far more seamless and much less acrimonious than it could have been. Her professionalism, work ethic and positive attitude made her a pleasure to work with and allowed us to meet many of our goals as far as getting plans in place well in advance of when we thought we would. Rebecca remains involved in our on-going deliberations and fine tuning and I anticipate we will continue to use her services going forward. She was a pleasure to work with and a huge value add to both the Board and senior management.
I have worked on many total rewards projects with Rebecca over the past several decades. She is a strategic thinker, focused on partnering with her clients to understand and address long-term goals, while paying careful attention to interim outcomes and details. Her solutions are consistently of the highest quality, delivered in a clear concise package, and in a timely manner. Her thorough analytical and communications approach ensures that clients understand both the human and cost impact of her recommendations. I would highly recommend partnership with her across the spectrum of the total rewards space.
Have a compensation, benefits, or total rewards strategy project that you want done with amazing expertise and high quality but you need someone else to do it? Look no further… Rebecca Shipley and Innovative TR Solutions is your answer. I hired her at my last company to build the company’s first ever compensation strategy from nothing in record time. I am currently engaging her for another compensation project that our team just simply doesn’t have the bandwidth for right now. I’m impressed with her endless knowledge on a variety of total rewards topics, her executive presence, and her desire to help companies and HR with their biggest pain points. Hire her. You won’t be sorry.
We recently hired Innovative TR Solutions to create a comprehensive compensation plan. Principals Rebecca Shipley and Josh Yelenick gave us personalized attention over the course of several meetings, making sure they understood our business and our industry. As a nonprofit organization that chooses to pay around market rate, we were impressed by the mix of data they used to determine appropriate pay ranges for each position in our company. Josh created an easy-to-use and definitive compensation tool through which we now run all our pay decisions from new hires to promotions to performance rewards. Our staff are impressed because they now understand what it takes to get a raise in our organization and how they “stack up” compared to the market. Our CEO was impressed when Innovative TR Solutions looked at our benefits and helped us identify areas where we could cut back while still being competitive with other employers. We anticipate using Innovative TR Solutions each year to update this amazing compensation tool so we can continue to attract and retain high-performing employees.
