Why retention? Why now?

As world economies continued to rebuild following the Global Financial Crisis in 2008 and business confidence grew, we started to see an influx of new jobs, new technologies and an increasing HR focus on attraction; how do we recruit the kind of talent that will see our business deliver on its strategic goals?  The world post-Covid is seeing a whole new landscape emerge.

2020 Incentives in the Covid-Era

What do you urgently need to know about incentive schemes right now?

As we begin to adjust to our new “normal” and get some of the immediate HR/H & S practicalities sorted, some of the questions now facing employers relate to incentives schemes.  For some, it was simply a question of whether to pay out incentive payments for the 2019/2020 financial year, while for others it’s a bigger question about whether their incentive scheme is still fit for purpose in the post Covid-19 era.

Written by Christine Whelan on July 07, 2020.

Restructuring – a word that no one, employer or employee likes to hear. And yet recently, in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, it’s a word we’ve been hearing on a regular basis. Unfortunately, as the Government employer subsidies come to an end it’s a word, we’re likely to hear even more over the next few months.

Annual Salary Reviews in times of Crisis

Written by Lyn Brieseman on June 23rd, 2020.      0 comments


Written by Lyn Brieseman  on June 23, 2020.

At Strategic Pay, we know money is tight given the current environment, and restraint during the annual salary review will be required in most organisations. Our experience with remuneration and rewards indicates that instead of across the board increases (including zero increases), organisations should be targeting specific groups. With highly restrained pay review budgets, alternative approaches to the annual salary review will need careful thought and complex modeling to ensure the limited budget is distributed appropriately.
