Our top 10 of 2017

2017 has been an exciting year for pay and reward.
Our top 10 of 2017

Equality has been high on the reward agenda. It was a key theme for 2017; from government consultations on better governance around executive pay to the challenges of the gig economy. And of course the gender pay gap. It’s been the hottest topic for us, our clients and the media. So much so that it appears three times in the top 10 of our most popular blogs:
