Councils to pilot total reward statements

Buckinghamshire County Council, Cambridgeshire County Council and Hertfordshire County Council are to launch online total reward statements to pilot groups of employees.

The councils, which have joined forces to enable them to spread the cost, and share the risks and outcomes, will roll the first statements out to employees in September. This will be followed up with staff surveys in November. In total, the total reward statements will be issued to three groups of between 100 and 300 employees.

Depending on the success of the pilot, the councils could roll out the statements further to their combined workforces of 60,000 employees.
