In this category, we recognise an individual who have been responsible and actively involved in the development and implementation of a new Reward Project that:
• May be of a short-term or long-term nature;
• Has a procedural, operational or strategic impact on the organisation;
• Has an impact horizon range from 2 months to more than 12 months; and
• Has been implemented with sufficient time to report and demonstrate the actual business benefit.
The individual would have been responsible for a Reward Project which demonstrates innovative and relevant reward practices that support the unique business environment and business strategy and contributes towards the organisation’s objectives and success (financial or humanitarian). The award is open to all organisation sizes – from multi-nationals to SMMEs – and this is taken into account through the judging process.
The global pandemic has had an astonishing impact on businesses and individuals since March 2020, challenging employees’ ways of working and their Total Reward solutions. Although these challenging times may result in the re-evaluation of previously planned Reward initiatives, it also provides an opportunity for innovation in a field that very seldom lends itself to significant change.
As a result, we will also recognise novel and creative Total Reward interventions that have gone above and beyond in limiting the negative impact to businesses and employees. This nomination is meant for an individual and must demonstrate the impact the intervention has had on the business.
The winners will not only receive the acclaim and recognition from their peers, but will also receive a cash prize of R30 000 for the 1st prize, R20 000 for the 2nd prize and R10 000 for the 3rd prize.
