The current economic environment is the most difficult we have seen in decades. Corporate Compensation Partner’s mission has always been to help our clients. That mission remains unchanged, and in fact, we have tailored our services to even further help our clients cut operational costs. Our new Compensation Function Partner Model provides administrative options combined with our consulting expertise at a compelling value.
Tough economic times force companies to take a hard look at their operations – from top to bottom. We have a history of providing our customers with value and quality and a business design to adapt and respond to changing market conditions. We remain focused on maintaining excellent customer relationships.
We serve our clients’ needs with an extremely competent staff, professional and excellent service and precise attention to detail. And we measure our success not by revenue or sales but by success of our clients. We look at the long-term relationships with our clients and believe investment in our clients’ success is investment in our own success.

We founded Corporate Compensation Partners on the core values of professionalism, integrity, competence, creativity and innovation. Our clients recognize these core values, and we treat all of our clients as if they were the only client. While our large competitors focus on their own bottom lines, we focus on yours. Because in the end, your success will continue to ensure our long-term success.

"We are very pleased with the results of the project. Corporate Compensation Partners demonstrated a strong sense of what was needed. Their expertise in the compensation area was apparent from the start and they were able to draw upon many more resources than were available internally. Their subject knowledge added much credibility to the final recommendations and made approval very smooth. This was work we had been attempting to complete for some time and Corporate Compensation Partners delivered above expectations."
