CONFERENCE THEME

Organizations are increasingly creating social and environmental performance indicators to assess and incentivize corporate responsibility and sustainability. Responsible rewards include socially responsible and sustainable rewards programs, such as sustainable employment and skilling, sustainability-driven benefits, equal pay, and the inclusion of ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) criteria in incentives. In addition, they should support employee well-being and not harm other stakeholders. The theme of the conference includes how compensation-related HR practices, such as salary levels, incentives, employee benefits and the work environment support corporate social responsibility and sustainability (CSR/S). We aim to attract studies along these lines, but also research on whether what is good for employees is also good for shareholders, how managerial beliefs affect assessments of social return for investment, and whether such rewards also cause unintended consequences. Submissions on research in the field of rewards, whether closely or more distantly related to the conference theme, are welcome. Select papers from the conference will also be considered for a special issue in Compensation and Benefits Review around the same responsible-rewards theme

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

We welcome submissions related to the conference theme, but we also welcome all papers dealing with relevant recent research in the field of rewards, whether it being theoretical, empirical, or case-based. We welcome research from over all parts of the world, as this will provide a truly intercultural perspective. Research dealing with the aforementioned topics is extremely welcome, but the conference is also open to other interesting research in the field of rewards.

The key target audience of the conference consists of academics. But the conference also wants to embrace a stakeholder-driven approach. In this respect, it also welcomes HR and reward professionals, consultants, union representatives and other interested parties. Specific attention will be paid to organising sessions during which these stakeholders can put forward and exchange on their opinions and needs.
