CCA Montly Event

The Case for Differentiated Pay for Performance

Webinar access available. See Registration and Price for details.


Attendance is FREE for current CCA Members; registration is still required.

Program Details

Virtually every organization ascribes to the notion of rewarding high performance. Research shows that both today, and historically, few organizations have been successful in differentiating total rewards for high versus low performers. The perceived reasons abound: not enough money to allocate; skewed performance distributions; weak managerial skill-sets; only high performers remain; and many others. Causes include design flaws and also shortcomings in execution. This session will examine the obstacles that are preventing organizations from achieving their pay for performance goals based on total rewards research as well as direct experiences of the presenter. Attendees will also learn about a paradigm-shift that, if followed, will significantly increase their ability to achieve their pay for performance objectives.
