    Summary:  How effectively and appropriately an organization defines, measures, manages and rewards performance will have a major impact on workforce effectiveness.  Employees must view their rewards as being fair, competitive and appropriate and they must believe their contribution to the organization’s performance is recognized and valued. The turbulent environment over the last decade has called into question some of the performance and rewards management strategies that have been used in the past.  Globalization and increased competition for resources has put pressure on organizations to do things better, faster and cheaper.  Competition for talent has put pressure on employers to identify those with critical knowledge and skill and to ensure they are appropriately compensated.  Organizations paying for longevity or failing to adequately differentiate between top performers and others are finding that they lose the people they need the most and keeping those who cannot do better elsewhere.  Performance management strategies must be able to identify key contributors, enabling the organization to ensure they are rewarded appropriately.  What is expected of an employee must be clearly defined at the beginning of the year and updated whenever expectations change. Once a year appraisals are inadequate unless performance is continuously measured and feedback provided to employees. And managers must be trained to effectively manage performance. Rewards management strategies must ensure that the nature of the work, the nature of the people performing the work and the value of contributions are all considered when deciding how and how much compensation is delivered.  Alternative approaches to managing base pay and variable pay will be evaluated and strategies for administering direct compensation will be explored. Participants will be given the opportunity to discuss their challenges associated with performance and rewards management. 

    Seminar will include:
    *A model for defining, measuring and rewarding performance
    *Discussion of how compensation can motivate people to extend their best efforts and to focus those efforts on organizational objectives
    *Exposure to the principles of sound performance management and rewards management
    *Exploration of performance and rewards management strategies that best fit types of employees: executives, sales personnel, professionals, support personnel, etc.
    *Discussion about attendees challenges related to performance and rewards management
