Total Rewards Ecosystem: How to adjust your Total Rewards Ecosystem in the post-pandemic world

Wednesday 2:15pm – 3:15pm

Session Description

How has the pandemic changed what employees want? Does employee experience still matter, or has money become the most critical value currency during times of uncertainty? Learn how to use the Total Rewards Ecosystem to determine which value currencies address the changing needs and wants of your workforce and now to shift your focus. A well-tailored mix of post-pandemic value currencies will attract the right employees, retain your high performers, and drive improved business outcomes. The Total Rewards Ecosystem will take you behind the scenes of how economic drivers influence employee behavior and how to translate those findings in actionable steps to create a unique set of value currencies for your business that will result in more engaged and committed employees.
