An effective total rewards strategy enabling organisations to deliver the right amount of rewards, to the right people, at the right time, for the right reason.

To understand the importance of these issues, consider the essential elements of any corporate strategy: senior managers must buy into it, managers and employees must understand it, and all systems must be able to accommodate it. When one of these elements is missing, conflict arises. Compensation surveys, communications strategy, and HRIS implementation are among some the biggest issues in implementing an effective total reward strategy

A total rewards strategy can help organizations vary the size and allocation of their total budget in line with business needs, financial constraints and talent requirements. Employers can better align rewards with employee preferences to get the best value for their spend, promote specific behaviors and drive higher productivity. And they have the flexibility to segment and differentiate rewards for different employee groups or parts of their business.
