[Excerpt] The notion that compensation policies are strategic, thereby affecting the missions of the organization, has considerable currency. This is part of the current popularity of all things strategic. While some may write it off as another fad, a less cynical view is that a strategic perspective on compensation is part of a growing recognition that macro-organizational issues are an important part of the study of human resource management (Dyer, 1985).
