    Is There A Doctor In the House? Our Incentive Plans Aren’t Doing Well

    Live Webinar

    FREE for OCCABA members.

    Non-OCCABA member may register for $30.

    Thursday, September 23, 2021 from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm (Pacific Time)

    The incentive and commission plans designed before the pandemic aren’t doing very well these days. They require some “doctoring” and rehabilitation. A plan that may have been operating sufficiently for many years is suddenly made irrelevant. Tolerated weaknesses and ambiguities in plan provisions are more apparent and unsupportable. Performance measures that made sense at the beginning of the plan year are no longer achievable. All of these factors have contributed to a malaise that has deflated any semblance of motivation from the plan. This session shows attendees how to “diagnose” their current incentive plans for performance measure relevance and design weaknesses. It also shares strategies to “cure” the incentive plan design in order to retain, motivate and attract the talent needed to be successful in the transformed workplace.
