This Briefing recommends extending the annual benefits statement approach of illustrating employee benefits by adopting a total reward philosophy in NHS organisations.
This approach can go a long way towards reinforcing the positive employment package that the NHS continues to provide, even in times of pay restraint and pension reforms, and will be helpful in addressing the HR challenges facing the NHS.
NHS organisations offer a wide range of tangible and intangible rewards, which are very highly valued by employees.
Total reward provides a means of capitalising on these benefits by setting out a compelling, rounded statement of the full NHS employment proposition.
