Imagine being able to suggest professional and reliable ideas and solutions appropriate to all the reward management issues that regularly crop up. Ideas and comment that really impress with their relevance and content.
This is where e-reward research reports can help. As part of a paid-for annual subscription, you'll receive a collection of 10 case studies, surveys and toolkits plus free access our digital archive which contains every research report we have published.
In June 2002, e-reward launched its ongoing original research programme. Its purpose is to advance the theory and practice of reward management among UK practitioners and others with an interest in how employees are rewarded at work. On a practical level, this research offers so much more. We see it as your own up-to-date instruction manual to a better way to work in reward. Our research findings are published, in full, in a series of monthly research reports, available on an annual subscription.
Each year, as part of your annual paid subscription to the research reports, you receive a set of in-depth case studies with document extracts providing you with access to reliable, practical expertise and experience so that you can develop more effective reward strategies in your own organisation.
Our emphasis is on how leading professionals are putting theory into practice in the workplace, and case studies are carefully chosen to highlight the latest thinking in reward management.
Case studies provide:
exclusive insights into why the approach was taken
what the organisation was trying to achieve
how the implementation or change process was undertaken
who drove the initiative
how long it took
what resources were required
how effective it has been
the lessons learnt.
As part of its ongoing research programme, e-reward has undertaken a series major in-depth, state-of-play surveys, examining key aspects of the UK reward management agenda:
grade and pay structures
UK Reward Census
The overall aim of our surveys was to find out how these practices were being developed and operated. But the main issue addressed was not how the basic processes and practices work - this is now well known - but how to make them work well. But perhaps the most fascinating and valuable outcomes are the practical comments and suggestions about the design, development, implementation and maintenance made by respondents, which we reproduce in full.
The result of this research has been a benchmarking exercise which we believe provides invaluable decision-making information about these practices in the UK today. Subscribers to the research reports receive at least one survey per year.
The final element of your annual paid subscription to the research reports is a set of toolkits. The purpose of our "how to" toolkits is to provide practical advice and guidance to anyone in an organisation which wants to review an existing practice (take, for example, job evaluation, performance management, total reward statements, market data and bonus schemes) or develop new ones.
You can use these toolkits to understand:
the aims and features of the featured reward practice
why organisations introduce such practices
evidence regarding their prevalence in the UK
key characteristics and components
what are the pros and cons
key ingredients for success
strategies available for design, development, implementation and maintenance.
E-reward’s digital archive contains every research report right back to the first issue in June 2002. This extensive body of work comprises an impressive collection of case studies, surveys and toolkits on contemporary reward issues.
It is available only to paid-for subscribers of the research reports. If you decide not to renew your annual subscription, your access to the digital archive will end.
