Total Reward Statements (TRS) have been developed by NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) in partnership with the Electronic Staff Records (ESR) programme to support staff retention and motivation by providing NHS staff with details on the overall value of their employment package. TRS will be introduced in the NHS in three geographical tranches from August 2014.
The to-do lists for all three tranches have begun and there are a number of things you can do now to help prepare your trust and your staff for statements being available to view in your organisation.
If you have not already done so, identify someone in your organisation who will manage queries about TRS and ask them to familiarise themselves with the information in the 'Roles and Responsibilities' section of the TRS information website.
Remind employees that TRS information is available via your local communication channels. To help you do this, NHSBSA have developed a local communications pack, which can be found on the TRS information website.
Webinar: Preparing for TRS
We are hosting a free webinar on behalf of NHSBSA on 7 July at 2pm-3pm. The webinar will provide you with all you need to know about TRS including how you can prepare and engage with your staff ahead of your organisations statements being available to view. You will also hear from an employer who was part of the summer 2013 technical pilot about their experience of TRS and the lessons they have learnt for roll out.
You can now book on to our webinar through our event webpage.
