Compensation is a critical component to attracting and retaining top level talent. Today’s business leaders want to encourage and reward targeted results. On the other hand, businesses are less comfortable with a compensation model that obligates them to pay an expensive salary without the employee delivering measurable value.

Today’s compensation is more about performance than ever. Compensation models have shifted from a base salary to: “OTE” or On-Target-Earnings, which include the combination of base salary and performance-based bonus incentives.

Incentives need to be aligned with company goals and implemented to motivate and reward for achieving defined goals. We analyze, update and develop performance-based compensation models for our clients.

The Best Compensation Models

– Straightforward and simple to understand
– Work on a 3-6 month cycle, no longer a 12 month, calendar cycle
– Focused to motivate individuals who will in term be incentivized to deliver on the company’s goals
– No caps. Extraordinary people should receive extraordinary rewards
– Alignment – If extraordinary rewards are made, the compensation model should be aligned to reward the business leaders handsomely
