Thank you for attending the CIPD Reward and and Benefits Conference on 3 April 2019.


The workplace landscape is changing fast, and so are practices and attitudes around salary and compensation. In today’s world of work, organisations need to keep up with employee expectations and find new, innovative ways of attracting and retaining talent if they want to stay ahead of competition.

The CIPD Reward and Benefits Conference has been designed to provide you with the latest insights in the field, from creating a total reward strategy to harnessing the power of new technologies and the use of analytics to enhance employee engagement.

Join key reward practitioners to explore how we can best create, deliver and adapt ‘fit-for-purpose’ reward strategies that meet business needs and sustain a motivated and stimulated workforce.
