Laura Smith of Direct Line Group on how its reward strategy is evolving to help retain talent
Laura Smith, senior executive compensation manager at Direct Line Group, speaks with REBA’s content director Maggie Williams in this video interview about how its reward strategy is evolving to help retain talent.
“We’re moving away from a traditional one-size-fits-all, with everyone getting the same approach to their total reward, to a much more segmented approach,” explains Smith.
She goes on to explain they are still at the start of their journey to understanding what segments are appropriate, alongside establishing what pay needs to do in each segment for their employees.
Smith attended REBA’s exclusive Transforming engagement: technology change is business change breakfast in association with Mercer Marsh Benefits. The event brought together senior reward professionals from an array of sectors to discuss how technology developments increasingly mean that digital strategy and people strategy have to align.
