Move beyond a traditional approach to total rewards toward a more holistic and flexible strategy.
Pressures in the external environment and shifting employee preferences have put a focal point on Total Rewards to attract and retain talent.
Categories other than compensation and benefits (e.g. development, wellbeing, and recognition) have emerged as top reasons why employees join and leave an organization, as well as what keeps them engaged at work.
Organizations need to understand what employees value most and work within budgetary and resourcing constraints to provide meaningful rewards.
A Total Rewards approach focused solely on compensation and benefits no longer captures the full extent of what employees value, nor is it flexible enough to adapt to the current labor market.
An effective Total Rewards strategy uses the employee experience lens tounderstand the full spectrum of employee needs and meets them with offerings, resulting in improved engagement and retention.
