Mercer’s Workforce Rewards and Incentives


Effective rewards strategy design means embracing the needs of a diverse, multigenerational workforce. Gen X-ers, millennials, and baby boomers of all backgrounds are working together. It’s a beautiful thing — and something that demands a more nuanced rewards strategy than ever before. After all, “rewards” means something different to different people, at different times in their lives, and in different parts of the world. In the era of choice, how you design and deliver this cornerstone of the employee value proposition is the biggest retention lever you can pull.

An even greater challenge that lies beyond creating a flexible framework for a diverse workforce is anticipating jobs that have yet to be created. The next generation of workers will be asked to fill many roles that don’t even exist today. But how can you plan for what you don’t know?

Compensation is less important for Generation Y but is a key driver for Baby Boomers. To personalise their value proposition, companies have begun using personas to identify what matters most to target populations and to operationalise their total rewards program for distinct groups.

Need a Sales Incentive Plan?


In a business environment of constant change and flux, many Sales Incentive Plans are legacy systems of old ideas and quick fixes. They hold sales teams back from achieving their goals.
