Hazel Rees, Work & Rewards Leader, Europe, opened our session with how organisations and employees are living through a period of great uncertainty. Covering a polling section which showed that 30% of those polled will take some action around pay and benefits in response to a sharp rise in the cost of living.

We explored how Dr Lars Reichmann – Head of Corporate Compensation, Benefits & Mobility at BASF are adapting their total reward strategies to mitigate the rising cost of living, sharing too the process of setting realistic long-term incentive plans and targets when business performance and share price may fluctuate more than usual.

We have been inundated with questions about what steps people are taking to respond to the current high inflationary environment.”
