Pay For Performance Plans
Available from Fox Lawson & Associates, a Division of GBS
Professionals expect a generous compensation package to be offered when they apply for jobs. In fact, most experienced professionals won’t bother applying for a job without the right compensation package attached. Many corporate entities have incredibly similar compensation packages, which can make every employer seem the same to employees who are seeking new work. Health insurance, dental plans, vision plans, paid time off, retirement plans and vacation time are almost always set in stone. With such similar packages being offered, applicants usually make their decisions based on other things, such as pay and geographic location.
Employers can benefit from coming up with ideas for new incentives for applicants. Having even one or two unexpected offerings can help an employer win in the bidding war for employees. Ideas for special incentives include large hiring bonuses, stock options and material possessions such as automobiles. Such incentives can make an applicant take a second look at a job they might not otherwise have considered.
