Exploring Reward Essential Insights
Explore the key features of different reward types and their role in supporting organisations to attract, retain and motivate employees
Free for CIPD members and Core Learning Subscribers.
Reward packages reflect an organisation’s culture and values, revealing what it chooses to (and chooses not to) reward through remuneration and/or benefits. Organisations need to ensure that workers are fairly rewarded, and in line with the context and culture, in order to motivate and engage them.
This course provides an ideal introduction to reward for anyone seeking an overview of the topic. It explains types of organisational reward and the importance of clearly articulating an insight-led strategy. It will help individuals understand reward calculations (including international reward approaches) and how the expertise of people managers can impact the effectiveness of the reward strategy. The course also explores future trends of reward, covering social responsibility in the current economic climate.
Learners will be able to apply the programme content in their role to identify the reward benefits available in their organisation, contributing ideas using a reasoned approach.
