WorldatWork (Total Rewards Association)


The Impact of Rewards Programs on Employee Engagement

A Report by WorldatWork and Mercer

August 2010

[full-text, 22 pages]


Total rewards is a term that has now been used by HR professionals for more than 10 years to describe the concept that several employment factors (such as compensation, benefits and work-life amenities) can be strategically applied, in unison, to deliver desired employee attraction, motivation and retention. Although the concept has been adopted in companies across a wide variety of industries and countries around the world, many organizations have chosen to define and implement it in their own way.


In early 2010, WorldatWork and Mercer conducted a survey of WorldatWork members with the specific intent of examining how organizations are both adopting and adapting total rewards today — more than 10 years into the life of the concept.
