Reinventing Rewards and Benefits as you Adapt to Future Ways of Working

As the world continues to tackle turbulence and uncertainty, HR leaders are presented with a rare opportunity to take the lead in adapting to and reinventing the future of work. Whether employees are working at home, remotely, in reimagined on-site locations, or some combination of the three, recent experiences have highlighted how employee needs vary widely within organisations.

It is up to HR leaders to continually evolve the strategy for Reward & Recognition and meet changing workforce expectations — by prioritising employee wellbeing, providing flexibility, and maintaining high employee engagement levels to drive the performance needed for recovery and growth.

Join this session with CHROs to discuss how to:

  • Expand the scope of your benefits and reward strategy to become more agile in accommodating flexible and hybrid work models
  • Build a culture of holistic wellbeing that includes the physical, emotional, and financial health of the workforce
  • Go beyond traditional benefits and compensation models by offering diverse and personalised choices to employees
