People shouldn’t get paid more just for turning up to work each day Print E-mail
Wednesday, 29 August 2007

Raymond Robertson, Director, Strategic Reward, will use the Employee Benefits Exhibition and Conference, London, to share his somewhat controversial views on employee rewards.

“I’ve believe it’s unacceptable to pay people more this year than last year just because they’ve turned up each day, irrespective of what they’ve achieved”, explains Raymond, author of a major new book, The Together Company, which examines the key role of reward in business performance. “Not rewarding employees for performance – individual, team or organisational – sends entirely the wrong message to employees about what matters to the organisation’s success, and, ultimately, to theirs. What really matters is employees behaving in ways that are right for customers and long term growth of the organisation.”         


Raymond will be speaking at the masterclass session on performance at the show. Raymond will be joined by Ruth Hutchison, Reward Director, Whitbread, who will show how Whitbread integrates reward, financial and non-financial, and performance management to drive the right behaviour and business performance. Speaking before the show Ruth adds: “Reward is part of a bigger picture and it’s about far more than pay. Getting the right performance in our outlets is as much about engendering a positive competitive spirit, good communications and leadership, as it is about financial reward.”


Raymond and Ruth will be addressing visitors made up of experienced HR and benefits professionals in the masterclass ‘Stimulating the right performance through reward’. The session will leave visitors with a practical framework and fundamental factors that make performance-related reward work effectively. Both speakers will both provide examples of different types of rewards that work for the organisation and are valued by employees. Topics to be covered will include aligning reward and business priories, effective base pay and bonus structures, recognition and celebration, differentiating between top, average and low performers and the crucial role of business leaders in stimulating the right performance.    


The Employee Benefits Exhibition and Conference, London, 2007, will host a series of master class conference sessions aimed at experienced HR and benefits professionals. These six sessions, spread evenly over the two days, cover complex benefits issues and provide visitors with a unique chance to ask the experts questions face-to-face.
