Compensation is one of greatest people-management challenges to address by 2030 (PwC)
There is a pressing need to integrate different streams of research to deal with emerging issues:
Reports of misbehaviour due to incentives (e.g., Australian Royal banking commission)
Shift in forms of employment (An industrial relations issue)
Changes in work design caused by digital and technological transformations forcing us to rethink work skills and consequently compensation (e.g., need for greater adaptability and soft skills)
In this workshop, we aim to:
Jointly develop research ideas and methods to answer burning questions coming from academic work and from emerging industry and societal concerns
Develop collaborative partnerships with international researchers and with industry.
covered in the workshop:
1. Maximising Performance and Minimising Collateral Damage
How do we design compensation systems that:
Attract and help retain talent?
Support both individual and team/organisational performance?
Support proactivity and innovation?
Do not encourage misbehaviour (e.g., cheating, conflict)?
2. Future Compensation Systems for Future Work
How does compensation theory need to:
Develop in light of rising income insecurity (i.e., the new gig economy and casualisation of work)?
Change given debates around income inequality?
Develop in light of the rise of automation and the need for skilled workers?
