Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This book is what pragmatic, business-focused HR directors have been waiting for, for years; how to justify the huge spend on rewards with hard data. Another milestone on the journey of HR from overhead to true business partner." -- Carolyn Gray, Group HR Director, Guardian Media Group

"In this wake-up call for human resources professionals, Armstrong explains how to measure the impact of employee pay and reward systems on organizational performance and gives advice on constructing effective pay and reward practices at the individual and organization level. The first three chapters of the book offer a framework for understanding the concepts of evidence-based management and evidence-based reward management. The second part of the book deals with the processes of evidence-based reward management, with chapters on reviewing reward, measuring and evaluating reward, and developing and implementing reward. Six case studies from large organizations in corporate and local government settings illustrate how organizations are wrestling with these issues." -- Book News Inc.


"Successful reward policies make a material difference to the performance of an organization. Challenging HR to consistently adopt the disciplines routinely used for other investment decisions is the right approach." -- Imelda Walsh, HR Director, J Sainbury
