Why are line managers key to successful reward schemes? 


Line managers are the biggest factor in the success or failure of your reward scheme. And that's true not just when you reach the implementation stage - but at a much earlier stage in the process.


In fact, we believe the secret of a successful reward programme is getting line managers involved in your scheme from Day One. 
This approach was core to working with one of our favourite clients 
Not only has this reaped dividends for the organisation which has featured in a recent 
E-reward case study, but the scheme has also been nominated for a CIPD People Management Award
