Compensation of the Future


Perth, Western Australia

29-30 April 2020 (Research Focus)

1 May 2020 (Industry Focus)

Developing financial incentive strategies

that deliver high performance.

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:​

Create effective financial incentives solutions through collaborative partnerships between international researchers and industry partners.


Keynote Speakers




In light of the rise of automation and changing workforce needs,

the overall theme of the workshop is to

design compensation systems that:

  • Support both individual and team/organisational performance

  • Support proactivity and innovation

  • Support health/well-being

  • Do not encourage misbehaviour (e.g., cheating, conflict)
