The Course

In all organisations the Human Resource is the greatest expense, so it is important that the administration of Compensation and Benefits is of the highest quality. Well trained Remuneration staff are able to monitor the systems in place and add a strategic perspective.

This exciting new programme looks at the basic building blocks of effective benefits administration and then goes on to explore the Strategic dimensions - how the whole process can add ‘value for money’ and help the organisation achieve its objectives.

The Strategic dimension will focus on the current strategic issues facing organisations today – how to design strategy to cope with change in the societal setting and how to cope with change in the organisational context. We will look at the question of how organisations can encourage participation and engagement and still achieve organisational objectives and profitability.

Delegates can expect to develop a ‘toolkit’ of useful practices that will allow them to scrutinize the existing practices in their organisations and compare them to current good practice.

The Goals

  • As a result of attending this workshop delegates will have developed a clearer understanding of Reward philosophy and strategy
  • Have a better understanding of how the component parts of reward strategy fit together
  • To explore some of the issues surrounding the effective management of the human resource
  • To understand why ‘staff’ are the most expensive resource of the organisation
  • To evaluate ‘new’ practices that might benefit your organization

The Process

The workshop uses a variety of learning methods, including mini-lectures, extended case studies and self questionnaires. There will also be small group work, class discussion and multimedia training aids. We will use video clips, and up to date news items.
