    What New Ideas Are Companies Considering in 2019 and Beyond?

    May Educational Luncheon


    An open discussion around Trends and Patterns in Sales Compensation and Awards & Recognition.   Attendees will hear about movements to revenue and service based plans, the mechanics behind these measures (e.g. linkages, caps and thresholds) and new monetary and non-monetary award and recognition programs. Specific topic areas include:

    • What measures are companies using in their variable compensation plans?       
    • What is more common? - Bonus based plans, Quota based plans or Commission based compensation plans?
    • What geographic pay differentials are still valid?                                                                

    Attendees will also receive a self assessment diagnostic to judge how effective their current compensation plans are and how they grade in key areas that drive reward strategies.
