'The course has been a very fruitful experience for me as it has provided me more insight on my specialised field, Compensation & Benefits. The content  of the course itself has been deepen my knowledge where benefits, particularly non-monetary benefits are concerned. From the Compensation & Reward course,  I am now in a better position to critically assess  my organisations’ own Compensation, Benefits & Reward program to determine if it is firstly still in line with the organisations’ strategic objectives and secondly if it appropriate to all levels of staff. It is a course which I would most definitely recommend to others to attend.'
