This assignment allows you to demonstrate mastery of the course outcomes:

  1. Determine core requisite competencies for the organization and differentiate a total rewards program to attract, retain, and motivate employees possessing the organization’s required competencies

In this assignment, you will design and share a MS PowerPoint presentation that describes the organization for which you work, its current and future challenges, its capabilities, and the requisite competencies needed for its success. You will look for and report on examples of the existing total rewards programs to include monetary, non-monetary, and the work environment (including values and culture). The MS PowerPoint presentation will include a report on existing metrics (organizational or HR) if any are present. If citations or Web site materials are used, in-text citations and sources presented on a References page using American Psychological Association (APA) format are expected. This information can be used in the final paper (the final assessment which is a plan to change the organization’s total rewards programs). It is expected that at least three references from the course materials will be used.

Context of Total Rewards

Employee provides: Time, talent, efforts and results

Employer provides: Total rewards valued by employees

The Exchange Relationship

Total Rewards Strategy

Dedicated to Knowledge Leadership in Total Rewards

During the past several years, the concept of total rewards has advanced

considerably. Practitioners have experienced the power of leveraging multiple

factors to attract, motivate and retain talent; high-performing companies

realize that their proprietary total rewards programs allow them to excel

in new ways.

At the same time, human resource professionals, consulting firms, service

providers and academic institutions have made significant contributions

to our understanding of total rewards.

The WorldatWork Total Rewards Model

 Reflects the maturity and power of the concept

 Depicts five elements that, collectively, comprise total rewards

 Provides the organizational and environmental context in which total rewards

strategies and pro grams exist

 Articulates the desired outcome of attracting, motivating and retaining satisfied

and engaged employees who create business performance and results

 Demonstrates the dynamic relationship between employees and employers—

the employee’s contribution of time, talent and efforts for desired

business results.

As the association of the profession, WorldatWork presents this model to:

 Represent the profession’s conceptual framework for total rewards

 Serve as a tool for practitioners to use with management in their

own organizations

 Depict the official WorldatWork model of total rewards

 Serve as a foundation and guidepost for intellectual capital

development in the profession

 Become a tool for academics, consultants and others to support

their intellectual capital endeavors.

(See page 5 for model definitions.)

WorldatWork Total Rewards Model 54 www.worldatwork.org/totalrewards

Pay provided by an employer to an employee for services

rendered (i.e. time, effort and skill). Includes both fixed

and variable pay tied to levels of performance.

Programs an employer uses to supplement the cash

compensation that employees receive. These health, income

protection, savings and retirement programs provide security

for employees and their families.

A specific set of organizational practices, policies and

programs, plus a philosophy, that actively supports efforts

to help employees achieve success at both work and home.

Performance: The alignment of organizational, team

and individual efforts toward the achievement of business

goals and organizational success. It includes establishing

expectations, skill demonstration, assessment, feedback

and continuous improvement.

Recognition: Acknowledges or gives special attention

to employee actions, efforts, behavior or performance.

It meets an intrinsic psychological need for appreciation of

one’s efforts and can support business strategy by reinforcing

certain behaviors (e.g., extraordinary accomplishments) that

contribute to organizational success. Whether formal or

informal, recognition programs acknowledge employee

contributions immediately after the fact, usually without

predetermined goals or performance levels that the employee

is expected to achieve. Awards can be cash or noncash

(e.g., verbal recognition, trophies, certificates, plaques,

dinners, tickets, etc.)

Development: A set of learning experiences designed

to enhance employees’ applied skills and competencies.

Development engages employees to perform better

and engages leaders to advance their organizations’

people strategies.

Career Opportunities: Involve the plan for employees to

advance their career goals. May include advancement into

a more responsible position in an organization. The company

supports career opportunities internally so that talented

employees are deployed in positions that enable them

to deliver their greatest value to the organization.

The Elements of Total Rewards

There are five elements of total rewards, each of which includes programs,

practices, elements and dimensions that collectively define an organization’s

strategy to attract, motivate and retain employees. These elements are:

The elements represent the “tool kit”

from which an organization chooses

to offer and align a value proposition

that creates value for both the

organization and the employee.

An effective total rewards strategy results in satisfied, engaged and productive

employees, who in turn create desired business performance and results.

The elements, as WorldatWork has defined them, are not mutually exclusive

and are not intended to represent the ways that companies organize or deploy

programs and elements within them. For instance, performance management

may be a compensation-function-driven activity or may be decentralized in line

organizations; it can be managed formally or informally. Likewise, recognition

could be considered an element of compensation, benefits and work-life.

Context for Total Rew ards

The WorldatWork model recognizes that total rewards operates in the context

of overall business strategy, organizational culture and HR strategy. Indeed,

a company’s exceptional culture or external brand value may be considered a

critical component of the total employment value proposition. The backdrop of

the WorldatWork model is a globe, representing the external influences on a busi-

ness, such as:

 Legal/regulatory issues

 Cultural influences and practices

 Competition
