CASE STUDY / DAY 2

Transforming Rewards Processes Through Technology and Building Trust and Transparency

The ever-dynamic workplace of the future also needs a fast changing landscape in total rewards processes to match the pace of disruption that we are seeing today. Three increasingly relevant questions faced by the rewards leadership community on this aspect are: Are we able to visualise how customer-centric rewards processes of the future look like? Are we using technology to aid faster decision-making in the organisation? How do we prepare and manage change in organisations faced with the dilemma to globalise process while still maintaining local process relevance in different markets? In this session, the speaker will attempt to unclutter some of these questions with the help of some specific examples/cases in point.

CASE STUDY / DAY 2

The Future of Corporate Wellness: How to Engage Remote Employees in the COVID-19 Era

The coronavirus pandemic has changed our perspective & life in all aspects. It has disrupted existing organisational wellness programmes that led management to change their strategy by expanding and enhancing corporate wellness culture offering different means to meet employees’ needs during this pandemic and what is beyond.

  • Digital transformation initiatives and activities will help us build a new culture and be more flexible during this pandemic through e-learning platforms & social media
  • Management visits to all 30 branches to ensure corporate wellness and provide motivations during existing difficult times that have been exacerbated in Syria after the corona pandemic. This was also done through contacting them personally more often, motivating, creating wellness challenges with the team and ensuring a family and safe spirit
  • Virtual programmes are key in this period to build a remote methodology and policy in the workplace. This could be applicable by amending the skills needed based on the analysis done for certain job requirement
  • Virtual awareness on mental and physical healthcare during COVID-19 quarantine period is essential to ensure that employees are healthy, happy and maintain an energetic upbeat lifestyle at home that has now become the new workplace
