The 2017 Compensation Planning Software conference is set to become the most talked about event of the year. This unmissable event will go much further than our essential informative sessions on software selection and implementation: our aim this year is to provide in-house compensation professionals with the tools and guidance for them to streamline and simplify their reward structures prior to software selection, particularly for those who have little or no exposure to this specialist software and what it can do.

Our facilitator, Alan Gibbons, Managing Director of The Reward Practice, has created the perfect blend of workshop sessions to enable companies with limited resources to tackle their software selection with confidence.

Rewards Toolbox

‘Many clients I meet are ready to move ahead with selecting the right software, but frankly, a lot of initial work needs to be done to create effective pay and grade structures ready for transition into the most suitable compensation planning systems. So this year, our seminar will start with an easy-to-use “Rewards Toolbox” that I designed in 2016 for one of the world’s major pharmaceutical companies. It was used to streamline its reward practices across 60 countries. This exciting methodology has never before been publicly showcased. It will enable delegates to understand the task ahead of them and to ensure that their compensation practices are properly aligned prior to any software selection initiatives.’ – Alan Gibbons.

Using this toolkit approach, Alan strongly believes that companies can quickly (and quietly!) put their house in order and be assured that their internal and external rewards strategies match the best in the business and are ready to integrate with the right compensation software.

Following this toolkit case study, Alan will provide a step-by-step guide to software selection designed to quickly find a way through a plethora of selection and buying decisions. There will be five separate sessions in total, interspersed with presentations from our chosen vendor partners.

Alan is guaranteeing that all delegates come away from the seminar with a game plan on how to move forward. For the first time in 2017, intensive roundtable discussions will take place at each stage in the process, and delegates will be able to carefully construct a project plan suited to their own particular circumstances. In addition, Alan will welcome delegates’ questions and concerns in advance, so that these may form a focal point for discussions throughout the day.

We invite you to invest your time in the company of Alan and to work with him to craft your own unique approach to both getting ready for your transformation, and for implementing the compensation software which is best for your organisation.

10.00: INTRODUCTION – A GUIDE TO THE OBJECTIVES OF TODAY'S EVENT


10.05: PREPARATION IS EVERYTHING – USING SIMPLE TOOLS AND GUIDELINES FOR YOU TO STREAMLINE AND SIMPLIFY YOUR REWARD STRUCTURES PRIOR TO SOFTWARE SELECTION

Let’s face it – our existing pay arrangements are rarely textbook perfect – issues about internal grading relativity and fit with the external pay market exist even in the world’s top companies. However, some simple housekeeping can transform your current practices and make them ‘fit for purpose’ in terms of being able to choose and implement new systems at least cost and minimum disruption.

So, before selecting the right software, it’s vital to create effective pay and grade structures ready for transition into the most suitable compensation planning systems. This session introduces delegates to an easy-to-use ‘Rewards Toolbox’, designed in 2016 for one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies. It was used to streamline its reward practices across 60 countries. This exciting methodology has never before been publicly showcased.

It will enable delegates to understand the task ahead of them, and to ensure that their compensation practices are properly aligned prior to any software selection initiatives. Using this toolkit approach, companies can quietly put their house in order and be assured that their internal and external rewards strategies match the best in the business and are ready to integrate with the right compensation software.

Alan Gibbons, Managing Director, The Reward Practice


10.40: CASE STUDY: TRAVELEX

SELECTING SOFTWARE IS EASY. SELECTING THE RIGHT SOFTWARE IS HARD

A recent study of approximately 600 business and IT executives revealed that 75% of respondents admit that their software projects are either always or usually 'doomed right from the start'. This illustrates the complexity of selecting software that meets the unique needs of your organisation.

This session will guide you through the journey Travelex took from identifying software need at last year’s E-reward Compensation Software Showcase to sales compensation technology purchase in December 2016. Travelex and OpenSymmetry will share what it takes to go from need, to a recognised project, to selection, and finally to purchase. Our co-presenters will walk you through four key components, along with best practices, for a successful technology selection:

  • the case for automation
  • key requirements and considerations
  • vendor evaluation
  • purchase justification.

Robyn Brack, Global Head HR Operations, Travelex, and James Mulligan, Regional Sales Director, EMEA, OpenSymmetry

11.40: DECIDING ON THE FUNCTIONALITY YOU NEED: WHAT COULD THE RIGHT SOFTWARE DO FOR YOUR BUSINESS?

There is no single template of functionality – all compensation planning systems are different. But then, so are you – let’s examine what’s on offer, what can be customised, and how to create your ideal system specification. Great vendors know that your company is in a unique position, and will do all they can to accommodate your needs and make the system work for you from Day 1.

Alan Gibbons, Managing Director, The Reward Practice


12.15: TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED . . .

HWC's presentation will look at a typical day in the life of a reward professional and what that means for us as reward software providers. We will explore some of the more frequently asked questions; some of the challenges that we have faced and we will show why sometimes 'it’s just a simple change' never quite ends up like that in reality. For us at HWC, a successful implementation and ongoing use of compensation software can only be guaranteed when you have the right partnership between client and provider: both working towards shared aims and objectives; both with clear expectations of the roles each party will play. This presentation will help to show you how you can achieve this.

Featuring a mini case study: WPP.

1.35: FROM ADMINISTRATORS TO MODELLERS – MAKING EVERY BIT OF FUNCTIONALITY COUNT

Well-chosen software will streamline reward functionality and activities – but more awaits. You need to demand tailored user experiences and embrace advanced modelling applications which will turn you from a reward professional into an influential business partner and master of talent management. We explore how you can take full advantage of what’s on offer and ensure it’s included in the packages you invest in.

>>> High-calibre audience of 75 senior reward managers from leading UK companies.

We understand and will exercise our statutory right to interest and compensation for debt recovery costs under the late payment legislation if we are not paid according to agreed credit terms. Under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts [Interest] Act 1998 – as amended and supplemented by the Late Payment of Commercial Debts Regulations 2002 (to incorporate the features of European Directive 2000/35/EC) – we are entitled to charge:

  • Debt recovery costs – £40 on debt up to £999.99; £70 on debt between £1,000 and £9,999.99.
  • Statutory interest – 8% above the Bank of England reference rate (fixed for the six month period within which date the invoices became overdue).
Delegate cancellations (i.e. non-complimentary tickets)

Delegates who advise E-reward.co.uk Ltd of their cancellation in writing via email (to paul@e-reward.co.uk) 30 calendar days before the start of the Event will have their fees refunded – less an administration charge of 20% of the Event fees.

No refund will be made for cancellations received less than 30 calendar days before the start of the Event. Failure to attend the Event will be subject to the same terms.

Substitutions with employees from your organisation are welcome at any time at no extra charge. You must email any substitutions (to paul@e-reward.co.uk) prior to the date of the Event.
