Communication graphic

Use our checklist to help you identify the key actions while you are working through phase three. 

Phase three of the reward strategy toolkit examines the implementation and communication of your reward strategy.

Through the development and design phase of the toolkit you will have identified and assessed which elements of reward will best support the delivery of your reward principles and goals.

In phase three we consider the following key areas.

Testing your approach 
This section provides information on testing your reward approach before implementing it across the organisation.

Developing your implementation plan 
In this part, we answer your frequently asked questions about implementing a reward strategy.

Managing the change 
Here, we consider how the organisation manages the change in reward including senior management ‘buy-in’ and partnership working with trade unions.

Developing a communications strategy 
This section provides information on developing an effective communications strategy and plan which is vital to the success of the reward strategy.

Read our communicating reward page which highlights the ways you can communicate your reward offer and key resources to support your approach.
