Mercer Clients now have the opportunity to become part of the internationally recognized WorldatWork - Global Remuneration Professional® community; expanding both your skill base and your professional peer group network.
In partnership with The Reward Practice Ltd.
Get your WorldatWork - Global Remuneration Professional® (GRP®) certificate and expand both your skill base and your professional peer group network. The Total Rewards Academy is for reward professionals of all seniority levels and also HR professionals with an interest for Reward.
Novo Nordisk, Lundbeck, Mærsk, Electrolux, IKEA & more, laid the groundwork working with The Reward Practice Ltd. to tailor a highly effective condensed program structured in three one-week course programs delivered in the span of one year. This is significantly shorter than the 3-5 years customary for the public W@W programs.
For 2022, this programme is open to all Scandinavian companies, irrespective of size or industry. It has been a proven concept for all experience levels, and you have the opportunity to be added to the over 200 HR and Rewards professionals from Scandinavia’s finest companies who have already benefited from this unique development programme.
Each course typically has 25-30 participants in order to facilitate open classroom style discussions. The plan below sets out how the 10 courses are split between the 3 course weeks. The 10 courses follow a logical pattern of learning about Rewards.
There is an examination for each course. These can be taken online at your convenience. The objective is to ensure that everyone passes their exams. Recordings of each course are provided for revision and self-study.
In addition to the 10 courses in the World at Work program, you will benefit from actual case studies from the sponsor companies as well as from Mercer, which this year also includes experiences learned and challenges related to working in the post-COVID world.
Case studies will be sent out in advance, but these are mostly for group discussion and no preparatory work is required.
We have a mix of opportunities for you to participate with both face-to-face courses on location in Copenhagen or Malmö, as well as online courses for registrants from APAC / Europe or the Americas, who do not have the option to travel. Limited seats available at Malmö | IKEA and Copenhagen | Lundbeck - hurry to reserve your spot. Seats are offered on a first come basis.

“The Total Rewards Academy has increased my understanding of all aspects of Rewards, and gave me the chance to study alongside colleagues from Scandinavian companies. It was a great confidence-building and networking experience, and I would recommend it to all Rewards specialists, at all levels, as a great way to get certification and to learn what other leading companies are doing.”

“Very pleased that I was given the opportunity to participate as it has been a great introduction to Total Rewards. I really appreciate the insights and learnings from the 3 weeks we had together.”
Daniel Seco, GRP®
Director Global Mobility
"During my time at Leo Pharma and Novo Nordisk I found The Total Rewards Academy an excellent way to learn and discuss the theories and practices of rewards with peers from different companies while getting the much sought after WorldatWork GRP® certification. It gives great insights to why certain approaches are favored over others, but also provides the opportunity to hear what other leading companies are doing and while doing so extending your professional network. I would recommend it for all who would love to get deeper into rewards theories and practices across all the professional levels."
