Reward systems actually develop in both global and local contexts. This gives rise to a lot of challenges. In addition to the various instruments of total rewards, i.e. financial and non-financial means of rewarding, a reward system also consists of principles regarding its design, implementation and development in a sustainable manner.
As a part of an organization’s strategy implementation, it sends a strong message that should support the business context, and its meaning should be rightly interpreted and accepted by the personnel in order to lead to high performance, commitment and satisfaction of the employees. As a consequence, there are huge challenges to further develop and improve reward systems for executives, managers, clerical as well as blue collar workers.
This conference will look for good practices to develop reward systems based on (applied) academic research and practical experiences.
The conference brings together both researchers and practitioners in the field of reward systems: researchers from universities, business schools and other research institutions, human resources professionals from companies, consulting firms, and general managers responsible for developing reward strategies, systems and their implementation in companies, and reward system experts from employers’ and employees’ associations.
The papers presented in this conference are expected to fit broadly – but not exclusively – into one of the following categories:
- Reward systems within the context of organizational strategies,
- Developing reward strategies,
- Strategic power of different reward instruments,
- Implementing reward systems,
- Aligning rewarding with the other HR instruments,
- Roles, perspectives and interests of the different stakeholders,
- Executive remuneration,
- Total rewards in the public sector,
- Challenges for small and medium-sized workplaces,
- Rewarding knowledge creation and innovation,
- Organizational innovations and rewarding,
- Rewarding in global contexts,
- Gainsharing systems,
- Collective rewarding,
- Upper management, professionals,
- Rewarding groups, teams and projects,
- Individual interpretation mechanisms of rewarding,
- Challenges of work-oriented and performance-based pay,
- Pay for performance and without performance,
- Roles of middle- and upper management,
- Roles of employees in reward system design and implementation,
- Measuring and evaluating reward systems,
- Total rewards in European context,
- Evolving compensation models in unionised settings,
- What makes a reward management work effective,
- Communication on reward systems.
