"Formula for success: rise early, work hard, strike oil."

"Formula for success: rise early, work hard, strike oil."---J Paul Getty.

Looks like a great cleansing formula. A soap can be named after Getty's name! My experience in life is, unless you strike oil or gold, it remains rise early and work hard. Mukesh Ambani has struck oil, the whole of middle-east has struck oil and that happened in 70s. Mukesh is a late riser! He works hard and lives in the costliest and perhaps the largest house in the world.

How much you rise early or work hard, the crux is, did you strike oil or gold?
Ask yourself, have I made it large? If no! Keep rising early, keep working hard till you strike oil. The great grandfathers of the Arabs in the middle-east worked harder and woke up early but one lucky guy in 70s struck oil. Was he working towards striking oil? Did he sleep with this dream every night, did he wake up every day with a hunger for striking oil? No! It happened! It happens! Chill! If you have in store your oil well or Gold mine, you will get it while sleeping, on vacation or while working hard or anywhere....That is not important.

So, keep rising early, keep working hard and you may strike oil?

The Hay Group Total Reward Framework

Reward strategies must be anchored in business reality to be effective. Which means linking it to your business strategy – and the needs of your employees as well as your organisation. Our Total Reward Framework helps you optimise reward, no matter how challenging the conditions.

The issue
Remuneration tends to be one of the worst-managed parts of an organisation’s cost structure. But with 10-70 per cent of total costs wrapped up in it, reward cannot be ignored, particularly in a downturn. To be effective, reward programmes must reflect the needs of the business, now and in the future. Only if they are tied closely to company strategy, business performance and the needs of employees can reward programmes deliver the ROI that is needed in tough times[MK1] .

Aon Hewitt Total Rewards Framework

Aon Hewitt Total Rewards Framework The Aon Hewitt model and approach believes in considering Total Rewards as a business tool and very much linked to overall business objectives!
Reward as understood is a very complex mechanism and some efforts of correcting the base pay and titling in a hurry by many MNCs in India have done a bigger crime by trying to correct it by market adjustments without looking at the talent map, complexity and expectations out of role and mapping it against the benchmark. Titles in India are a big misnomer and hardly any survey on compensation ever probes and captures and calibrates the tangible outcome based bench marking!
