DescriptionReviewsContentsAuthors

Not just another textbook on pay and benefits but a work in which the top specialists in each aspect of reward focus on the issues of the moment – whether pensions, the implications of age discrimination legislation or multinationals' attempts at cohesive international remuneration strategies. They also identify the most significant areas of change in compensation practice, incorporating the latest research and challenge conventional thinking, providing a truly critical perspective. An invaluable addition for both practitioners and sophisticated students.

Reviews



'This book provides a much needed overview of contemporary developments in reward. The array of high quality contributors manage to balance the provision of useful information on pay and benefits with a variety of critical analytical insights. As a consequence, the book will be of interest and value to policy makers, practitioners and academics.' - Ian Kessler, Reader in Employment Relations, Oxford Said Business School, UK

'Susan, Steve and Esmond present a contemporary look at the wider issues of reward as viewed from a number of stakeholder perspectives. Bringing this fascinating subject together is a contribution from acknowledged experts within the field.' - Richard Thorpe, Professor of Management Development, Leeds University Business School

'Its strength is that it examines the pros and cons of issues in a lively and intellectually challenging style, where other authors might be more cautious.' - Alastair Hatchett, People Management
 
'A very pleasing feature of this book is that it seeks to analyse and understand by describing change. The essays often provide small all-important context that newcomers to reward may not already have.' - Katharine Turner, The Reward Quarter
