2007 WorldatWork Publications Contributor of the Year
(PRWEB) May 14, 2008
WorldatWork has announced the names of five authors who will receive the “2007 WorldatWork Publications Contributor of the Year” awards. Now in its fifth year, the awards are given to authors voted “the best” by WorldatWork advisory board members for their insightful contributions to workspan® magazine and the WorldatWork Journal.
The honorees are:
1. Andrew Katsoudas, Scott Olsen and Pamela Weems of PricewaterhouseCoopers for their article "New Trends in Global Equity Rewards" (March 2007 issue of workspan)
2. Michal Kisilevitz and Jeremy Citro of Benefits Roundtable for their paper "Getting More from Benefits-Vendor Relationships" (Q2 2007 of the WorldatWork Journal).
The awards will be presented at the Author and Reviewer Reception to be held May 22 during the annual WorldatWork Total Rewards Conference & Exhibition 2008 in Philadelphia.
"New Trends in Global Equity Rewards" discusses how the complexity entailed in the new regulatory environment—in the European Union and the United States—has resulted in more challenges in the areas of stock plan administration and employee communications around the globe. This article uses recent survey results to outline trends in equity compensation for multinational corporations and make some predictions about the future of global equity compensation.
"Getting More from Benefits-Vendor Relationships" explains how effective benefits-vendor management ties directly into benefits executives’ key mandate to maximize the value of benefits investments. This paper addresses the role vendor management can play in helping reduce health-care benefits costs and the way in which organizations should allocate their resources to capture these significant returns. Three key strategies—internal and external partner role allocation, relationship management and performance measurement can increase the return on vendor relationships.
All WorldatWork Journal and workspan magazine articles published in 2007 were eligible for this award. A team of WorldatWork practice leaders selected the finalist articles, which were judged by members of WorldatWork advisory boards based on practical application (workspan) or quality of research, theory (WorldatWork Journal); clarity of presentation; pertinence to compensation, benefits and total rewards professionals; and contribution to the field.
