As such we prefer to work on a project basis with ongoing support and maintenance so that we can deliver the best fit holistic solution designed for your long term continued success and competitiveness.

The services we can offer are:


When we analyze your current compensation and benefits we first sit with the leadership of the organization to fully understand their vision of how they would like to compensate their employees; we get to intimately understand the current compensation and benefits structure currently in use. If desired, but highly recommended; we then diagnose internal trends and disparities through holding focus group sessions at various levels of the organization on an anonymous basis. Once the internal landscape has been examined we then examine the external environment through a 5 point market analysis, seeking  to clarify current trends within the geography and industry; this can be tailored to fit your vision of whom you want to be aligned with. Once a full examination of the internal and external environments has been done we use our collective experience and insight to come up with various recommendations that can fit your budget as well as achieve your goals.

The outcomes of which present in the following deliverables:

  • Creation of a grading structure that will live within the organization indefinitely, taking into consideration minor market adjustments over time whilst keeping the structure and scheme intact.
  • Development of commission & reward programs that take into consideration the culture of the organization and its members; the environment within which they operate and the goals the organization wishes to achieve.
  • We can provide recommendations on/or procure additional benefits on behalf of the organization, in the way of medical and life insurance; accommodation procurement and set up; or transportation services.


Off the shelf performance management systems are often generic, expensive and inadequate for handling the diverse and complex nature of organizational environments within the Middle East. Organizations in the Middle East are characterized by diverse employee groups and complex cultural interactions. In order to motivate and reward such diverse work groups a performance management system has to be tailored in consideration of both the internal and external landscapes. The Middle East is a dynamic environment, constantly evolving and shifting; highly competitive in terms of business and talent; in order to motivate and retain talent within a highly pressurized competitive market environment to achieve organizational competitiveness; a bespoke performance management system has the best chance of success.

People please will delve into what is the organizational vision and mission; what goals are to be achieved with what resources. The first step in creating a performance management is to define the internal landscape which presents in the following deliverables:

  • Creating a drilled down organizational structure, defining leader-follower interactions, formal and informal hierarchies and cross border interactions. This is presented pictorially in department and organizational overview organograms as well as a spreadsheet detailing the formal and informal hierarchical interactions.
  • Creation of specific Job descriptions, by first getting ‘real’ input from job holders as to what their jobs entail; sitting with leaders at various levels to review, and to identify job sizing; this will help clarify job holder roles and accountabilities against leadership expectations whilst identifying any additional talent requirements needed.
  • Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) linked to job roles and individuals that specifically identify the skills, abilities and competencies required by individuals to successfully carry out tasks that contribute to organizational effectiveness and productivity.
  • Development of a competency dictionary that will become the values and skills the organizational culture will revolve around.
  • Development of the Performance Management System (PMS) and guidelines for use; with training for all levels as requested.
  • Development of the reward matrix linked to PMS outcomes; with detailed guidelines.

In some cases we may recommend access to the team for a couple of days to get a better understanding of whom may be the best fit to achieve the goals of the leadership. As stated, People Please believe in long-term relationships with our clients, we understand the cost and damage of hiring the wrong person; and we take our time in first understanding needs and context before searching for and sending across candidates.
