The 10th annual Rewards: The most distinguished event in the industry’s calendar


 

Those within pay and reward are classed as key workers during the pandemic, at a time when it’s more crucial than ever to ensure employees are engaged and uplifted.

 

In these uncertain times, the employers, teams and individuals doing an exemplary job should not be forgotten, they deserve public recognition.

 

Those of you providing exceptional service and going above and beyond to ensure employees are paid - on time and accurately - are ensuring workers’ wellbeing isn’t being negatively impacted and are serving clients like business as usual, deserve recognition, this year more than any other.

 

The Rewards boasts 24 categories, including staples such as Best Business Award, Customer Service Award and Payroll & HR Provider Award.

 

New to 2020 is the Crisis Management Award. This celebrates a team that has proactively and efficiently dealt with the COVID-19 outbreak, including the support offered to employees and frontline staff. This is not the only opportunity for you to illustrate hard work carried out during the pandemic. Many of the categories on offer can be used to show evidence of this, from Best Reward Strategy to the Wellbeing Provision Award and Employee Benefits Provider Award.

TERMS & CONDITIONS

By entering the awards, you are agreeing to our terms & conditions. Please click here to view the full terms & conditions.

 

It’s mandatory for shortlisted companies to have at least one representative at the awards ceremony to collect their award should they win. Therefore, every shortlisted entry has a single seat at the Awards Dinner. Entrants reaching the provisional shortlist will be contacted prior to the public announcement of the full shortlist to pay for your reserved seat and discuss optional table bookings and promotional opportunities. The shortlist will not include entrants who have not secured their seat as once the shortlist is announced publicly, tables sell fast. Therefore, to ensure the full shortlist can attend we have put this measure in place.

Conference

Reward & Payroll Summit


 

TwitterLinkedInFacebook

Taking pace during the day of The Rewards, the Reward & Payroll Summit focuses on the key trends and challenges across the pay and reward landscape, including the effects Covid-19 has had on both employers and employees.

 

You will have the opportunity to hear from key speakers working within reward. They will share their experiences over the last year - how they, their teams and companies have adapted for the future.

 

Topics covered will include financial wellbeing, employee engagement, taboo subjects such as menopause and fertility policies and impending legislation that was halted or suspended as a result of the virus. We will also look at the changing approach to flexible working and why employee communication is important now more than ever.
