Numerous factors determine how organizations determine their variable pay plans. Total Rewards professionals need to understand the various types of variable plans and how they are used to drive performance and results. The selection of plans depends in large part on the organization’s business objectives. Is profit the principal objective, requiring all employees to focus solely on the bottom line? Is short-term performance more important than long-term success, or vice versa?

This session presents the three major categories of variable pay along with the basics of several different variable pay plans and important considerations when using these plans.

In this session, you’ll learn: 

  • The three major categories of variable pay
  • The difference between short-term and long-term incentive plans, including objectives, approaches and considerations.
  • About bonus plans, including objectives and considerations.
  • What to consider when evaluating recognition plans, including objectives and considerations
