Reward strategy

Sheila Attwood Editor's message: Your organisation's reward strategy describes how the organisation will use reward policies, practices and processes to support the delivery of its business strategy. The organisation should be clear how each element of reward - such as salary, bonus and benefits - is going to deliver its desired outcomes in terms of, for example, attraction, retention and motivation.

Adopting a total reward approach can help to deliver the objectives of the reward strategy. Total reward encompasses the tangible aspects of reward, such as pay and benefits, along with non-pay items, such as work environment and training opportunities. Organisations that recognise that people are motivated by more than just money can use this to influence employee behaviour and engagement.
