Reward is – very simply – one of the reasons why we work! Importantly, though, reward is not the only reason that we work. That is why our approach to reward is not to focus on reward in a vacuum, but to consider it as part of the broader management ecosystem – comprising benefits, leadership, performance management, global mobility, and business strategy.


How we can help

We have a unique combination of technical capabilities, market intelligence, and analytics to help our clients with a broad range of emerging reward issues including: senior executive reward and governance; tax and regulatory compliance; ‘total' reward strategy and analytics;  competitive benchmarking and development of reward structures; and incentive design and linkage to performance management.



Business leaders need better and more real time data on the value delivered through their reward and benefits programmes. We work with organisations to make their programmes more effective through:

We help you compare reward structures across merging organisations, qualifying the competitiveness of reward structure against labour market peers and to survey employee groups to understand their comparative valuation of reward elements.

We help you to develop incentive structures and adapt salary and reward structures to your competency model and career hierarchy.

We use data, technology and process to track cross-border tax liabilities for long-term reward vehicles, monitor changes in taxation and withholding requirements across global territories and help you adapt adapt reward structures, governance and process to comply with regulatory requirements.

We create reward dashboards to monitor and evaluate programmes and enhance employee and stakeholder communications delivering an improved understanding and increasing the effectiveness of complex programmes.
