If you want to get ahead; get reward

How to get to the top
If you want to get ahead; get reward

The expression used to be if you want to get ahead, get a hat. In HR now, to get ahead you need to ‘get reward’.

As I’ve said before, there’s so much going on in the HR space that has implications for how we deliver reward, it’s time for HR to bring reward out into the open.

When you add to that the changes to UK corporate governance that widen the remit of the Remuneration Committee and promote the voice of the workforce, I think that HR will not only have a seat at the table but a very full agenda.

The RemCo will no longer be a dark art performed behind closed doors.

HR will need to be at the forefront, guiding the business and restoring employee trust.

So Heads of HR who can ‘impact the debate in a meaningful way’ and ensure that decision making doesn’t ‘take place in an environment that is detached from the rest of the organisation’ (Charles Cotton) will be highly sought after.

Like, Neil Morrison, I think that “if you want to make it to the top of your profession, the one you really need to get your head around is compensation and reward. That’s the area that really requires your attention, thought and understanding.”

But when we speak to HR professionals about reward projects, they often shy away from reward, saying it’s all about spreadsheets and statistics. But we don’t believe it has to be.

So we’ve developed some RewardReady Workshops with you in mind. They’re not ‘techy’ like some reward trainings out there. We’ve designed them to help you understand the both the fundamentals and the latest trends, and take away some practical tips.

We’ve developed two:

Foundation: for HR and reward professionals looking to update their core reward knowledge and deliver robust reward foundations that employees trust.

Strategic:  for those looking to bring fresh thinking to their role and develop a progressive and future-proof reward strategy.

Each workshop is stand alone; you don't need to do them both.  But they give a really good overview if you do. 

So if you want to:

•          develop your understanding of reward principles

•          think about reward differently and

•          challenge how reward can help you deliver your future organisation.

We’d be delighted if you can join us.
