Deploying an Effective Pay for Performance Bonus System that Works Across Multiple Industry Sectors

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., April 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Across industry sectors, compensation leaders recognize the value of recognizing and rewarding one of the main drivers behind an organization's success in the marketplace: top performing employees.

Annual bonus programs are one avenue companies use to reward employees for their contributions. However, smaller bonus pools, unfair distributions, misalignment of goals, and other obstacles can plague the integrity of the system and potentially send talent out the door.

Pay for performance programs are one tool organizations are using to try to retain top performers.

To help compensation organizations understand how other industries and high-performing companies deploy their pay for performance systems, research and consulting firm Best Practices, LLC conducted a benchmarking study. The research project, which involved human resources leaders across industry sectors, evaluates incentive systems with the goal of identifying strengths, gaps and improvement opportunities.

The study, Driving Growth & Talent Retention through Pay for Performance, investigates how compensation organizations at leading global companies are structuring and implementing pay for performance annual bonus programs to reward top performers and retain talent in today's environment of shrinking resources and increasing talent competition.

While pay for performance systems usually are used to retain top performers, almost half of the study's large workforce segment said decreasing over-payments to low performers was also a primary reason for using a pay for performance system.

The study explores these key areas:

  • Annual Bonus Plan Metrics & Eligibility Strategy
  • Global Annual Bonus Plan Uniformity
  • Target Bonus Percentages by Job Level
  • Minimum Bonus Percentage to Motivate
  • Pay for Performance Drivers, Goals, & Program Components
  • Implementation Metrics and Success Factors
  • Communicating Pay for Performance Rollout
  • Implementation Challenges and Pitfalls

By identifying drivers, measures of success, program elements, global differences, and implementation best practices, this study will highlight the must-haves of successful pay for performance bonus plans.

The study results will help compensation leaders create and maintain effective pay for performance programs. The data in the report is based on input from 47 talent and compensation leaders from 17 industries who provided both quantitative and qualitative data.
