Our Manager of Global Compensation will help shape our compensation philosophy by collaborating with senior executives including the CEO and CHRO and our diverse global business team to support our HR mission of creating an unrivaled workplace where talent is recognized, continually developed and prepared for opportunities as our organization expands into adjacent markets, geographies and product lines.

Driving the advancement of our compensation plans is a major aspect of this role. As our general compensation thought leader, this position will own and manage the ongoing strategy, design, and administration of our general global compensation programs.  Executing annual cash incentive plans (short-term incentive and sales incentive), merit programs, market analysis, surveys and pay structures are important functions of the role.  This position also owns our global relocation program.

Our Manager of Global Compensation will have an award-winning integrated SAP/Successfactors suite available to create compensation tools and capabilities.  Driving innovations through this best-in-class installation will enable the creation of systemic self-operating processes.

As the Compensation driver, you will engage in the research and benchmarking of best practices. You will collect data, drive continuous improvement, re-engineer, and/or refine Timken’s compensation processes, systems and programs.  Your ability to analyze, interpret, make recommendations and persuade executive leaders is an asset.  Using data, facts and trend information to determine an optimal course of action is essential.
