About This Course:
Motivated workers are critical to corporate success; however, neither a cookie cutter approach to motivation and engagement nor a highly individualized structure tends to be effective in the long run. As a result, organizations across the country are seeking to continuously improve employee performance, while simultaneously controlling costs.

Establishing or expanding pay for performance programs can be an effective strategy to achieve this objective. When designed well, pay for performance plans align employee behaviors and activities with specific goals. When designed poorly, such plans can cause confusion and frustration among employees and dissatisfaction among owners and management.

This webinar will cover key features to be considered as well as practices to be avoided in order to design a plan that succeeds in motivating and recognizing desired performance.
