This paper argues that effective reward management has to be evidence-based. The authors contend that the lack of evidence for, and evaluation of, pay and reward practices is a critical blind-spot for many of those involved in reward management.

The paper describes how organisations pursue effectiveness in reward management. It goes on to distil the lessons learnt into a model of evidence-based reward management that has the potential to enable line and HR managers to make better reward decisions and inform confirmatory research.
