Reward Connected played a key role in the development of the new Reward structure for Action on Hearing Loss. We have adopted their job evaluation system JESS and they have worked alongside us to tailor it for our organisation and train panel members in its use. I am more than happy to recommend them to organisations large and small, as their flexibility and sensitivity to the individuality of the organisation makes them a joy to work with.
Director of People - Action on Hearing Loss
Reward Connected is my go to for Pay and Benefits advice. Michelle Buckley and her team conducted an excellent market pay review for us in 2016. She helped put in a place a tailored and robust pay policy. Today, our approach to pay is consistent, transparent and meets the objectives of the UK equal pay legislation. Michelle is approachable, flexible and professional. If you need Pay and Benefit advice and support for your organisation, I would strongly recommend Michelle and her team.

They bring good advice and would heartily recommend them to other prospective clients.

Reward Connected undertook our Senior Pay review which was clear, informative and very helpful. Their actual attendance at our Remuneration Committee provided much needed external credibility and resulted in us achieving market aligned and competitive pay levels. This is our first experience of Reward Connected - they offer a very personable service and each time we contacted them their response was efficient and responsive.

Dr Ian Bullock
Chief Executive - Royal College of Physicians
We started working with Reward Connected just over a year ago as we wanted to introduce a formal method of job evaluation into our organisation. Michelle worked tirelessly with myself and my team to not only evaluate all of our existing roles (some 250 different roles), but to also carry out a robust and full salary benchmarking analysis. Michelle then trained a number of the senior HR team in their JESS system in order that we can be self-sufficient and complete our own evaluations in the future. Michelle is considered, thoughtful, patient and professional in her approach, working with us to find the right solution for our organisation. I would have no hesitation in recommending Michelle and Reward Connected.
HR & Organisational Development Director - The Challenge
Reward Connected came highly recommended as the go to resource for pay and benefits in the charity sector. The Leprosy Mission England and Wales engaged them to help identify a new Reward and Recognition approach. Throughout the whole process Reward Connected were both knowledgeable and professional, enabling us to make an informed decision. They are excellent at networking organisations within similar charitable groupings together, I really value belonging to this network
HR Manager - The Leprosy Mission
The Reward Connected Pay club gives us a more relevant and targeted network in which to compare our reward structures and ensure that we have relevant benchmarking data. There is also the added bonus that Reward Connected provide a conduit to check out specific queries always ensuring a speedy response.
