The key technology changes to be aware of as we plan Reward Strategy for 2023

Evaluate | Job Evaluation Software | HR software | Reward technology | HR Technology | PayLab | Advance | Hapi

HR Tech is evolving to meet the ever-changing needs of modern business. Previously companies acquired an Enterprise solution like Oracle or PeopleSoft to ‘do everything’. Now HR Directors can pick and choose between a range of products on different platforms with an expectation that they can integrate and ‘talk to each other’. It sounds straightforward but the goalposts are constantly shifting so it is important to peel back the layers.

How companies can retain and attract the right talent in 2023

Employee engagement | Talent | Recruitment | Retention

The current economic climate looks set to prevail well into 2023 so, with high inflation, a squeeze on talent and market volatility, challenging times lie ahead. I can see companies benefiting from investing within, both in terms of nurturing home-grown talent and in fixing any culture and connectivity glitches many have experienced and accepted since the pandemic. Meanwhile, attracting the best talent is likely to hinge on nailing the all-important employee value proposition, while continuing to focus on the traits of equity and transparency so important to the younger generation.

Performance Management | Reward Strategy | Performance | Reward

Every client we have is likely to want some kind of high performance culture, but where some fall down is by not making it clear enough what high performance means. For some it leans towards performance outcomes and specified KPI’s, for others around driving workers’ skill development and competency levels. It is very difficult to properly align your reward to support performance, whatever it is, without first knowing what this means to your organisation, and then getting real clarity around the purpose of each aspect of your reward suite.

How to maximise the value of bonus and commission schemes

Bonus | Commission

As with most things in HR, careful planning is at the root of driving efficiency in bonus and commission schemes. Only by putting the right amount of thought into designing schemes can they provide a continuous, circular benefit to employee and employer rather than an annual start-stop-restart train ride. This same planning should also ensure that employees are measured, tracked and communicated to in the right ways, and that you keep things as efficient and streamlined as possible, both in your policies and in your corporate governance.

Private sector facing new challenge of strike disruption: Steps to mitigate

With the effects of inflation combined with rising interest and the post-pandemic squeeze, HR departments have not faced a more challenging time in well over a decade. Wage growth is certainly not keeping pace with the current inflation rate of 11% but the same can also be said for the past few years. Most pay increases have done no more than keep things on track and, in real terms, across many industries and sectors, rises have still felt like a cut in pay.

Many employers now have a greater awareness and understanding in this area and have started to place a strong emphasis on doing right by their employees by offering valuable family-related benefits.

Motivation | Employee engagement | Thought Leadership

The financial statement has landed, pointing to tough months ahead. During these testing times of cost-of-living and interest rate rises, employment attrition and government uncertainty, it can be difficult for employees to feel settled.

Top tips to build a recognition strategy for a hybrid workforce

Recognition | Remote Working | Hybrid Working

Hybrid working has created a workforce often still united behind a common purpose, but fractured when it comes to knowing and understanding each other and enjoying each other’s success. As we’ve seen from social media, technology can play a huge role in bringing people together but in a corporate environment the challenge can often be keeping things personal.
