Reward managers are highly valued

A new salary survey by Employee Benefits magazine shows compensation and benefits experience is highly valued in HR departments, with salary levels for this group higher than those for generalist HR practitioners. “This can be attributed to factors such as the complexity of reward and acknowledgement of the function’s business role,” says Debbie Lovewell, the author of the report.
