Total Rewards Council

Organizations are continually seeking to improve their reward programs as a vital part of the company’s ability to deliver business success. But as the reward environment becomes more complex, keeping up with the latest thinking and with programs that deliver true value is a massive challenge. Progress grows more challenging as companies operate in an increasingly global environment, change their structure, attract new employee cohorts, enter new markets, acquire new businesses, and assign more employees between countries. Additionally, legislation and social pressures related to reward are becoming prevalent.

The Council brings together total reward senior executives, most of whom have a remit extending beyond Europe. It provides members with an opportunity to discuss the most pressing issues on their agendas, exchange views, widen their perspectives, and share their experiences and best practices.

Who should join?

Members will be compensation and benefits executives. Members have global and EMEA remits and represent multinational companies across different industries.

Why join the Total Rewards Council?

I remember a couple of years ago when I was about to launch a new project in job architecture, and I shared my plans for this with my colleagues from the Council. I immediately had a-number-of companies who had already done this or were planning to do this in the future. This resulted in a few conversations after the council meeting where I was able to connect my team with their teams to exchange experiences, the dos and the don’ts. In this way we were able to take advantage of all that expertise from those other companies that we didn’t have internally.

I think what’s helpful for the meetings is that you really get food for thought, you don’t just get solutions, that’s more what you might find in small, local networks. In this Council you get the overall picture that each company is-more-or less working on similar topics, but they are at different stages of the journey. I find that I can always use these Council meetings as a benchmark, to see where we are standing in a process and this helps me, either to move forward, or to work out which member I can contact to share one-on-one with after the meeting and align our experiences. This is the big value for me.
