Exclusive feature: Building your business with better incentives

Incentive schemes are widely used to align employee efforts with organisational goals by rewarding the achievement of desired results – but are leaders using them as effectively as possible?

“A reward program is a vehicle for communicating to your staff what the organisation as a whole values,” said Michelle Read, manager at Strategic Pay told HRD. “One of the things we believe at Strategic Pay is that dollars in and of themselves don’t necessarily create effective motivation that translates into real-world results. It’s a common misconception that this is how things work, but there are more factors at play.”

Strategic Pay is able to assist in reviewing a current incentive plan, or can help to design and implement an incentive plan that’s right for your organisation, says Read.

“We have New Zealand’s largest remuneration database, so we can model the impact of the incentive scheme against a number of industries and show how competitive the organisation’s rewards are,” she says. “We’ve also got a great understanding of diverse business models and can work with companies to design an incentive framework customised to their strategic goals.”
