The article talks about state-of-the-art approaches to reward which reflect continuity and change. Human resources management (HRM) and "strategic reward" arrived in the 1980s. It was a time of structural economic change and a political drive to recover managerial prerogative. The "new pay" era meant pay was matched to individual performance. Experienced practitioners recognise the risks of reward management ideas which assume that control of all aspects are gathered into managerial hands.
