Total Reward Statements (TRS) will be coming to your organisation soon. We have provided the information below to help you prepare for TRS ahead of queries that you might receive from your staff.
What is TRS?
Total Reward statements are being introduced in the NHS during 2014. The Total Reward statement has been developed by NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) in partnership with the NHS Electronic Staff Record Programme to support staff retention and motivation, by providing NHS staff with details on the overall value of their employment package.
TRS will give staff a clear picture of their total reward package. Your trust can add information to the local benefits page to showcase the positive benefits to staff of working for your trust. TRS are designed to help improve communications with employees, help them understand their complete benefits package and highlight the value of their employer and NHS Pension benefits in one place.
When will TRS arrive in your organisation?
The statements will be rolled out in three tranches geographically as follows:
- Tranche 1: North East, North West, Yorkshire & North Humberside
- Tranche 2: East Midlands, West Midlands, East of England, South East Coast
- Tranche 3: London, South Central, South West, Wales.
Details of which tranche each organisation will be in is available on the NHSBSA TRS information website
