With brands taking new routes in their compensation plans and workers wanting to get the most value for their work, your compensation scheme can become a strategic advantage when done right. Unfortunately, many business leaders wrongly set up their compensation plans, so their most considerable expense has become a downer.
How then do you craft a fair compensation plan that attracts and motivates the right people for your company? What do you do about compensating management staff fairly when their contributions are hard to measure, especially for a service business where people ‘eat what they kill?’
Listen to this episode of the Inspired Insider Podcast with Dr. Jeremy Weisz featuring the Owner of Scaling Up, Verne Harnish. They discuss why compensation is top of mind for businesses today, mistakes leaders make when setting up compensation plans — and what to do about it, the best ways to structure compensation, and more!
