Sometimes It's Not About Another Headcount

A majority of compensation teams are small - just one or two dedicated heads is common for even midsize organizations 

Building an internal team is challenging, in part because additional headcount can be tough to obtain. Even when resources are available, it can be difficult to prioritize which skills and experiences are needed for the next phase of team growth.

Think of this less about headcount and more about skills.

What if you could acquire just the skills you need for the time you need it?
