At a time when talent is hard to find and even harder to keep, the need to effectively communicate your company’s total rewards program has never been greater. Despite this challenge, few organizations are using communication to distinguish themselves in the marketplace. According to Willis Towers Watson’s 2018 Modernizing Total Rewards Survey, four out of five respondents give themselves poor marks, saying they’re communicating about the same as their competitors or lagging behind. On the other hand, leading companies are five times as likely to clearly differentiate their total rewards offering. What are they doing right? We’ll look at the the results from our latest national survey showing how high performing organizations approach total rewards communication, as well as the tactics they use to deliver their programs and make a positive impact on their workforce. Several case studies will be included in the presentation to provide inspiration for enhancing communication efforts in your organization.
