The LGA is recommending to councils that they should review and refresh their reward strategies in a new paper, 'Strengthening the strategic approach to pay and rewards in local government'.
- Strengthening the strategic approach to pay and rewards in local government - a coherent reward strategy is a central part of efforts to control employment costs in line with budgetary requirements. It is also vital in the drive to improve productivity.
- The companion guide: Strengthening the strategic approach to pay and rewards – a resources guide for local government - a supporting literature review will help to put work on reviewing or developing a reward strategy into context.
- Applying a reward strategy in local government - a further updated review of approaches to reward strategies written by the Institute of Employment Studies on behalf of the LGA.
