This pay for performance presentation will focus on different approaches to pay for performance and the key considerations for HR Professionals to considering implementing or modifying pay for performance programs. A brief introduction of theory and including pay for performance in total rewards will be followed with mini-case studies highlighting key strategies considered, and pitfalls to avoid, in the development of better pay for performance programs.
