Total reward 2: A total reward model at Arup

Professional services firm, Arup, is in the process of introducing a total reward model across its European, Middle Eastern and African operations; a region of around 5,000 people ('members'), the majority of which work in the UK. This places the UK HR team at the forefront of a larger project to implement total reward across Arup globally. Other regions in the organisation are observing closely the UK experience with a view to introducing similar projects in their own areas. The impetus for considering a total reward model at Arup in the UK grew out of a recognition that, for some time, salaries and benefits at the group had been operating as two parallel, but slightly conflicting, components of reward.
