Reward Advisor

Posted

A reward advisor is a valuable asset to a Human Resources department as they play a vital role in the acquisition, motivation and retention of talented employees.

Compensation, benefits and reward has become a highly regarded area of business in recent years, as retaining exceptional employees throughout a recession has become increasingly relevant. Employers must not only scope out fresh talent for their business but retain those they have with attractive benefits packages on top of basic salary.

How a Reward Advisor will benefit your business

Reward professionals are able to strategise and construct attractive benefits packages for employees at all levels throughout the company, this may be of particular advantage to an international company looking to appropriately compensate and ease the transition for employees moving abroad. An international mobility coordinator is a specialist benefit and reward professional who is able to ensure the transition period runs smoothly for the employee and their family whilst making sure they are adequately provided for by the company.

Reward advisors have often come from an HR background and moved into specialising in rewards. This means they have developed exceptional people skills as they must be able to effectively communicate between employer and employee, whilst being particularly competent at data analyses and numeracy.
