Salary payment is gaining popularity in most companies. Technology is changing so fast and the payment of salary based on job is becoming obsolete as most of the work nowadays is being done by the computers. The reason behind adopting the payment based on competency is to motivate workers to maximally use their skills and knowledge in their work. The payment system that promotes high productivity for an organization is expected to be applicable for the companies and firms that are competing with other firms. Competency is therefore viewed as the characteristics of a person in a workplace. These characteristics include the knowledge and skills that an individual use in carrying out an activity.
Good communication skills in the human resource to the workers add more value to the firm that is competitive. Communication enables one to understand other individuals thus creating harmony in the workplace which will eventually lead to success.

If the individuals are not rewarded equally, it may reduce the productivity of the worker. Management should do an early planning on the reward system. The management should not show favoritism in their way of rewarding employees.
Contentment in the work place will result to a positive job attitude. Contentment results from the evaluation of an individual’s skills. Self evaluation is very important for every worker. It helps one to understand his job and work harder. The environment should be conducive for the workers. Every worker is more productive in a good work place. Workers are more productive in an environment where they do not have much difference with each other. The differences between the employees may result from the way the different ways they are treated by the seniors. Employee’s feelings towards job must have a significant illusion on how a worker does his or her job. Research has proved job satisfaction as a force towards work. Every employer strives to ensure that his employees are satisfied with their work.
Satisfied employees are more likely to frequent workplace than unsatisfied ones. The rate of absenteeism for the satisfied employees is very low. If the salary one is paid is satisfying, he would not think of doing an alternative task. Salary is one of the major issues that influence job satisfaction. A well paid worker is more contented with his work. The person will be more committed to the organization when he or she is contented.

He can never be trusted with any work. And on the other hand, he explains with theory Y that satisfied employee is hardworking, independent. An employee will do his work without much supervision. An employer can entrust the work to such kind of employee. Workers who work for longer hours than what is fixed should be rewarded.
The overtime payment should be put in a way that is higher than the actual pay. This will encourage the employees to do more overtime job hence becoming more productive. Employees may also be paid based on the amount of work they do. The work an employee does may be measured and paid accordingly. This will encourage them to work harder so that they may accomplish more work hence more pay. Payment may be done based on commission.A worker may be paid depending on the amount of work he/she does. This will act as an enticement to the worker. Every worker will struggle so as to get high pay. Employees who achieved the target can also be rewarded.

Retaining the best employee is the dream of most companies. This process starts from recruiting. The recruiting process starts with the employment letters that are received from the applicants. Letters helps in selection of the candidates. Some candidates may be rejected. Another thing that may be useful in the recruitment process is the background of the candidate. Making a bad choice in the hiring process may cost the company a lot. An individual may be a thief and this will eventually affect the company. Research has been carried out in the US and it has been found out that 30% of the collapse in small scale businesses is due to the theft by the employees. New employees in the company may require training on the field. The human resource should plan for training of the employees. Training is also necessary for the workers who have been in the company for long. Training them will improve their skills and hence improve their performance.

He or she should work in a way that will attract the best trainers and facilitators.
The amount of money given to the trainer is the main factor that may attract the trainer to the company. Trainers should be paid well according to the work they do. The human resource however should plan well on the amount of money that the trainer should be given so that it may be satisfying to both the organization and the trainer as well. Employees of the company should be well selected as they are the core values of production. Hiring and firing of the employees is usually an activity of human resource. However, the executives of the company are included in the making of the strategic plan that is to be adopted by the human resource in the process.
Recruiting is a hard process, it is a dream for every employer to retain the most performing employee. The way the employee is treated will determine the period he or she will stay in the company. Communication is one of the factors which enhance the comfort of the employees in the work place. Good communication skills should be used in the workplace at all time. The human resource comes in contact with the workers most of the time. It is his obligation to communicate with them well so that he or she may act as an example to the other employees and hence encourage cooperation in the work place. Communication will enable the individuals to understand one another and hence providing a harmonious environment which is conducive for working (Mathis & Jackson, 2008).
Another way of retaining the employees is rewarding them whenever they do something good. The reward system can be essential rewards. This is where individual essential needs are considered in rewarding. Another one is the non essential reward. Individuals may prefer being rewarded with non essential things like. This may include things like a trip to some exiting places. The rewards must satisfy a worker. This shows the importance of to carefully plan for the reward process. A good plan will lead to a good rewarding system.
This reward focuses majorly on the financial reward system. The positive reinforcement is where someone is appreciated for doing something good. Negative reinforcement is whereby somebody is made to face the consequences of failing to do good job. An employee who is rewarded is likely to work well than an employee who is not rewarded. An employee may be given some money as incentives. Salary scale may also be raised if an employee has been working hard. Take an example of a company which has a rule that every employee will have his salary increased by a quarter when he meets the set target. Every worker will work hard to meet the set target so as to have his salary increased. An employee may be punished if he does something that may course a downfall of an organization. Punishment makes the employees shun away from doing mistakes in their work. An employee may also fail to get any reward. When an employee is doing a good job but fails to display a good behavior at work. He may not be rewarded for his good job. Failing to reward him may make him change the bad behavior like coming to work late. All these issues will motivate the workers to put more effort in the work place.
The amount of salary an employee is given is also one of the factors that determines the period an individual stays in an organization. An individual should be paid based on the skills and knowledge one has. An individual who is very much educated should b e paid highly as compared to the individual who is less educated. The business world is becoming very competitive and for I Media Integrated Media Solutions L.L.C Company to retain the workers the human resource should interact with other organizations to get the figures they give to their employees. Experience is one of the factors which will also affect the amount of money an individual is paid. Experienced employees are paid more money as compared to the less experienced ones. An employee should not be hired to work for the company and be given higher pay than the others who have worked for a length of time at the same level. The amount of work also determines the payment rate for the individuals. The company should strive hard to ensure that there is fair payment procedure for its workers. This will encourage them to work harder and hence the company will remain competitive.
