Reward and Technology

13 March 2019

16.30 – 19.30

Eversheds Sutherland, London

This meeting will address these issues in a compelling way which will help us take stock of our organisations’ preparedness for the changes to be assimilated and managed and the way we go about our business in the coming decade.

Digital transformation impacts all aspects of the economy and businesses of all sizes with computing advances providing the same digital opportunities to small companies as well as large corporations. Individuals expect the same level of service from their organisations and reward functions as they get on their smart phones – how can we address these expectations and move from the era of computerised payroll systems to an interactive, user friendly and agile service to employees and the business? What are the technical choices available to us in driving forward all aspects of reward strategy, performance management and the wider compensation remit of the future?

We will review the current technology landscape and the dramatic changes of the last few years as a starting point for developing a strategic approach to reward digitalisation and its impact, informed by a report written by David Creelman and Geoff Matthews looking at:

    the big concerns and the big opportunities
    strategic insights and future barriers to progress
    the skill sets required of future reward specialists
    reward technology
    what’s possible now and what will be possible in the short term?

The Report examines the many challenges organisations face while confronting the reality that technology on its own never solves anything – it needs to be understood, harnessed, optimised and discarded in ever shortening cycles, introducing challenges for reward leaders which we have hitherto not faced.

This meeting will address these issues in a compelling way which will help us take stock of our organisations’ preparedness for the changes to be assimilated and managed and the way we go about our business in the coming decade.
