Incentive Plan Health Check

Incentive or bonus plans come in a huge variety of different shapes and sizes.  The majority are annual bonus plans, some are long-term incentive plans and some measure and reward performance over periods of time shorter than a year.  Regardless of the specific design parameters or amount of complexity involved, a good incentive plan design should confidently tick all of these 8 boxes:


  1. Does your plan align all participants with, and focus them on, the organisation’s desired goals and objectives?  

  2. Does your plan drive the right team and individual behaviours? 



3. Are the award levels market-related and material enough to excite and engage the minds of your people?

4. Can people clearly see and understand how their job impacts on the various performance measures and targets?



5. Is your plan a valuable part of the total reward offering and employee value proposition?

6. Does the plan credibly enhance your organisation’s ability to both attract and retain talent?



7. Does your plan achieve the objectives of alignment, motivation and retention at a competitive cost to the business?



8. Is you plan compliant with the corporate governance provisions and any other requirements that affect your industry or organisation?


If you answered YES to all of these 8 questions you probably have an incentive structure that works well for your business.  If not, or of you are unsure and would like to discuss it further please do GET IN TOUCH.​
