(PRWEB) January 31, 2007
In their latest book, a sequel to their bestseller, Pay People Right!, Zingheim and Schuster predict the future of pay by deftly analyzing the past. They summarize total rewards design over the past 20 years as follows:
-Reengineering and rightsizing period
-New workforce deal period
-Best places to work period
-Better workforce deal period
-Global recession and Sept. 11 period
-Economic recovery period
Given the rapid changes in the past, what does the future hold for rewards designers? Zingheim and Schuster predict a future characterized by heightened customization, i.e. “one-size-fits-nobody-anymore.” In order to succeed, managers must align business needs with employee skills and strongly reward high performance consistently across the organization.
“Organizations are in a war for talent, particularly in key jobs, and people who really make a performance difference will be in short supply,” said Anne Ruddy, president of WorldatWork. “The message in this book relative to the “superkeepers” is both timely and urgent.”
