Overview

Not since the authors' pioneering book The New Pay revolutionized total pay has there been a book that clearly describes the crucial link between a company's reward solutions and its business goals. Now, as today's companies push to improve their effectiveness and compete globally, Zingheim and Schuster reveal how total rewards provide a unique and practical advantage to those organizations with the foresight to pay people right. Pay—including base pay, cash incentives, stock options, and recognition—can be a powerful and positive way to communicate and gain commitment to values, directions, and business priorities. Total rewards integrate total pay with a compelling future, individual growth, and a positive workplace to create a win-win partnership between the company and its workforce that enhances effectiveness and advances overall business objectives. Pay People Right! shows readers how. Based on the authors' extensive consulting experience and research, this practical guide defines six essential principles for building integrated rewards that will help companies tackle their most critical business opportunities: attracting and retaining scarce talent, expanding globally, improving mergers and acquisitions, focusing sales professionals, developing teams, and aligning executive and workforce pay. Pay People Right! builds a business case for improving existing rewards and gives companies readily usable tools for successfully implementing pay change. It also provides a host of examples of how companies, including many in the Fortune 500, use rewards to engage people and enhance performance.
