"This book uses up-to-date references, academic writing and case studies to provide a thoroughly modern view of reward management; a text that fully reflects the CIPD professional standards."

- Vicky Wright, Immediate Past President, Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD)

"I really enjoyed reading this book. It is comprehensive and takes an academic approach linked to practical material which will be of help to students and tutors. A text such as this is long overdue."

- Barbara Maiden, Senior Lecturer in HR, University of Wolverhampton Business School

"Stimulating and thoughtful. The strong employee relations angle provides a deeper conceptual and academic foundation for the overall topic of employee reward in contrast to some of the alternative texts."

- Andrew Leleux, Senior Lecturer, School of Business and Management, Buckinghamshire New University
