Purpose: With this thesis our aim is, with both a theoretical and empirical perspective, to investigate the relationship between companies’ formal reward system and how they position themselves amongst their competitors.
Method: Theories are used to design the test model, and are applied using a deductive approach. When modifying the test model, an inductive approach is applied.
Conclusion: We have not found a relationship between reward systems and strategy within the Swedish clothing industry. Rather, the relationship is between how the participating companies reward and the business that they are in.
