Report on the 7th Reward Management Conference (RMC 2019)

A biennial calendar highlight, hosted at EIASM’s Brussels headquarters 13-14 December 2019, the 7th Reward Management Conference (RMC) was another hit!

As usual the participants represented countries, indeed continents, around the world. The quality of their papers and the dialogue provoked by them was of the highest level. Prestigious keynote speakers joining the proceedings inspired an array of new ideas for ongoing research as well as evidence-based practise.

The organising team led by Professor Conny H. Antoni put together a programme which received praise from all those involved. It was a programme that engaged thematically with reward management issues of contemporary relevance, underpinned by management and social science theory to shape questions, methods and analytical conclusions. As one participant put it:

It’s very special, participating in a conference where all the key authorities you are citing are there in the room talking with you.

Just-published research (a) on CEO remuneration introduced by Prof Xavier Baeten, and (b) on surveyed opinions from employees as well as HRM specialists on pay policy and practices across all workforce levels introduced by CIPD Policy lead Charles Cotton and Emeritus Prof Stephen J. Perkins, set the scene for the two-day event.

Keynote speaker for Day 1, Prof. Carrie Leana from University of Pittsburgh, USA, lifted the curtain on ways employee ‘financial precarity’ interacts with work performance. Keynote speaker for Day 2, Prof. Ingrid Fulmer from Rutgers University, USA, complemented this analysis with a call for researchers and practitioners to learn from one another – and a description of how to do so – in respect of communicating with employees about pay processes and outcomes.

A twin-track programme of accepted conference papers enabled participants to engage critically with one another, sharing and receiving constructive feedback on their research across the following six thematic areas:

  • Executive rewards
  • Pay for performance
  • Reward policy decision making and effectiveness
  • Transparency issues in reward management
  • Intrinsic rewards
  • The interplay of reward and employee attitudes and behaviour.

The conference was brought to a conclusion with a panel discussion led by Prof. Dow Scott diving deeper into the pay transparency hot topic while situating it in a comparative transnational perspective. Evidence to inform the session was drawn from research in Germany, Poland, Spain and USA.

Dialogue between the community of researchers and practitioners attending the conference carried over into splendid lunch and dinner interaction, with seasoned and rising academics and management specialists, side-by-side learning from one another. The suitably focused nature of the conference, thus attracting a wide-ranging global community of highly knowledgeable reward management aficionados, is a particular strength of this event.

People attending from Asia, Australasia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, North and South America, find an intellectual home and build strong future-facing networks as a result of making the strategic investment to take part in this conference fixture. And of course, there is also the occasion to enjoy the delights of Brussels and its Christmas markets...!

Maintaining the dynamic as we move from our 14th year to the 16th in 2021, the plan is to build on the firm foundations of the conference series. The conference wrap-up session revealed from participants a number of issues to be considered in doing so:

  • The clear interdisciplinary character of the conference;
  • impact on rewards of digital transformation leading to new patterns of work organisation - e.g. distance-working, platform working, virtual teamwork;
  • key issues surrounding changing ecosystems and the social responsibility needed of organisations globally to ensure sustainability - with the messages communicated by reward having a strategic part to play;
  • as a meeting place between academic research and organisational practise, inviting more management consultants to share ideas and client-experiences. Structurally this suggests concluding Day 1, as successfully done several years previously, with a practitioner panel discussion, combining senior HR and reward specialists, with speakers from employer and employee representative bodies;
  • broadening the pan-Asian involvement: China, Japan and Singapore are already represented - but what about the emerging business powerhouse that is India?
  • surveying views on topical issues among potential participants beforehand. Informed perhaps by inviting HR practitioners to share their issues, so that researchers can come to the RMC with potential solutions to refine; and
  • further emphasis on the systematic feedback offered to paper authors. Specifically: introducing the role of discussant in paper sessions (in turn, necessitating session moderation to limit presentation times strictly to 15 minutes). Written feedback from the conference organisers;
  • building sustainable rewarding in startups and SMEs.

All these helpful suggestions, and others that readers of this newsletter may wish to share with us, will inform our reflection in designing the 2021 RMC programme under the leadership this time round of Prof. Xavier Baeten.

The organising committee: Conny Herbert Antoni (University of Trier), Xavier Baeten (Vlerick Business School), David B. Balkin (University of Colorado), Stephen J. Perkins (London Metropolitan University), Jason D. Shaw (Nanyang Technological University), Matti Vartiainen (Aalto University School of Science).
