Rewards strategy is a critical driver of organizational success, improving recruitment and retention, increasing employee engagement and aligning an organization’s investment in people with their business strategy. Successful rewards strategy depends not only on the quality of the program design, but also on the manner in which it is communicated and implemented. For a rewards strategy to be truly effective, it must be implemented using a change management process that drives understanding, eases adoption and utilization, and keeps a laser focus on delivering intended results.

We ensure that organizational leaders understand the key principles of rewards change management and demonstrate effective change management behaviors to their employees. We help them internally make the business case for change, maximizing support and acceptance at all levels. We develop change management action plans that outline the organization’s path to success. And we employ critical communications strategies that weave new programs into the fabric of the organization, and define and reinforce each person’s role in implementing smart rewards strategies for a bright and successful future.
