Meet your neighbor: WorldatWork, the Total Rewards association

March 4, 2013

Many of you may know WorldatWork by its original name, American Compensation Association. The name changed 12 years ago because the Scottsdale-based nonprofit HR association is no longer just American, it’s global, and it has expanded to offer benefits and work-life training and certification in addition to compensation.  For ease of reference, WorldatWork refers to compensation, benefits and work-life programs as “total rewards.”

Total rewards are the monetary and non-monetary returns provided to employees in exchange for their time, talents, efforts and results. Total rewards involve the deliberate integration of programs and practices that effectively attract, motivate and retain the talent required to achieve desired business results.


Who should be a member?

If you are a human resources professional responsible for strategies and tactics to engage and motivate employees, then WorldatWork is for you.  Here are the five types of professionals in our membership base and a brief description of each:

  • Compensation professionals work to reward employees fairly and appropriately.
  • Executive compensation professionals ensure that the multitude of complex and interrelated executive compensation issues and challenges are considered, as they design an effective program to attract, motivate and retain leaders to carry their organization through any economy.
  • Sales compensation professionals bridge the gap between management and its sales force to develop accurate and fair sales compensation plans that will win the support of the sales team, as well as achieve overall organizational goals.
  • Benefits professionals make sure workers can focus on their jobs by providing programs that protect their families’ health, welfare and finances.
  • Work-life professionals serve as organizational change agents implementing and communicating the business impacts of practices at the four-way intersection of work, family, community and self.
