REWARD MANAGEMENT SURVEY
Decline in number of organisations that can report on total reward costs
Almost half of organisations surveyed by Thomsons Online Benefits state that controlling employment costs is their top concern. Yet there has been an 18 percentage points slide in companies that can report on their total reward costs - down from 64% last year to 42% in 2012.
What’s more, almost six in ten respondents still don’t have a written reward strategy. These are among the key findings to emerge in the ninth annual Employee Rewards Watch report.

A final word
”During the last 30 years, there have been many changes in the world of pensions - some positive, some negative - but no change as significant as the introduction of National Employment Savings Trusts (NEST) and the accompanying application of auto-enrolment. Everyone should prepare themselves for a roller coaster of a pensions ride over the next few years as we respond to the staging dates and then the subsequent phasing dates which occur all the way up to October 2018. Respondents to Employee Rewards Watch this year have given a very clear indication that this issue is now very firmly on their radar.” - Michael Whitfield, Chief Executive, Thomsons Online Benefits,
