 “This is a refreshingly practical introduction to the world of reward management. Michael brings his extensive personal experience and knowledge to life through engaging observations, accessible case studies and clear explanations of the theories, models and essential tools for today’s reward practitioner.”

—Richard Hortop, Reward Director, Sky


“Pay and reward management is a technical and increasingly complex area. Michael makes the complex simple and puts his enormous and varied experience to good use in this highly practical and readable introduction to the field. I use it both with the reward professionals I work with and the students I teach.”

—Duncan Brown, Head of HR Consultancy, Institute for Employment Studies


“How you reward and recognise employee contribution sends an important message to your workforce, investors and society about the kind of employer you are. This book helps you ensure that your pay, benefit and recognition practices send the right messages, in the right way and at the right time about the performances, behaviours and attitudes that your organisation values.”

—Charles Cotton, Senior CIPD Policy Adviser for Performance and Reward


Effectively and fairly rewarding employees is a critical component to help build organizational, team and individual performance and success. Reward Management is a practical guide to understanding and implementing successful reward strategies which are aligned with broader HR and organizational objectives. Drawing on case studies, reflective questions and practical tools, it covers key areas including pay and grade structures, job evaluation, pay reviews, bonus plans, non-cash reward, benefits, tax issues and provides the knowledge and skills needed to plan, implement and assess an effective reward strategy in any type of organization.

This second edition of Reward Management has been updated to include the latest research and developments, such as the role of recognition and non-cash awards, and the psychological implications relating to financial incentives. New and updated case studies include insight from Marks and Spencer, Which?, The Royal Horticultural Society and Tata Consultancy Services, while supporting online resources include downloadable templates and further tools to be used in practice.

The HR Fundamentals are a series of succinct, practical guides for students and those in the early stages of their HR careers. They are endorsed by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), the UK professional body for HR and people development, which has over 145,000 members worldwide.
