The article discusses several issues related to employee finance that are expected in 2008. People will continue to seek to restore the purchasing power of their salaries by gaining pay rises that match the RPI inflation rate. Profit-sharing bonuses are expected to be much lower than the record levels reached in early 2007. Talent management needs to involve reward mechanisms to encourage self-development and transparent career structures.
