AI at the Helm of
Total Rewards

The panelists discussed how organizations face the intricate task of harmonizing compensation for employees and machines amid AI adoption. The transformation of traditional jobs by AI results in gig or skill-based work arrangements, posing challenges to established reward systems.

Navigating this evolving work landscape, organizations grapple with the imperative of ensuring fair compensation in the AI-driven paradigm. The panelists and the participants discussed possible approaches to tackle this.

Differential Rewards
for Different Generations

Implementing effective differential rewards involves personalization, considering factors relevant to individuals across generations.

Fostering an inclusive work environment for all age groups is crucial. The determination of one's generation involves both the date of birth and mindset, prompting a holistic approach to understanding and engaging diverse generational perspectives.
