Compensating employees represents a critical human resource management practice, so without strategic compensation systems, companies cannot attract and retain the best qualified employees. Thus, in compensating their employees, work organisations try to adopt different pay methods for different jobs. However, the choice of the pay method is subject to various factors, such as: skill, effort, responsibility, working condition, and many other internal and external factors (laws, regulations, competition, market, etc.).
