New Insights on Pay for Performance (Online)

08. June 2021
kl. 09.00 - 11.30  CET

Many organizations aim to align pay to performance. The underlying assumption is a clear link between pay and employee performance and as such the idea is to ensure differentiated compensation according to performance level.

On an intuitive level securing pay for performance seems fair and objective. However, the actual task of securing pay for performance has many challenges.  First of all there are the elements connected to the actual performance definition and performance assessment. There is also an element of differences in organizational divisions, cultures, personality types and job profiles, that also challenges the idea of having one pay philosophy and one pay system, and then of course there are the regulatory and legal aspect of compensation that also must be accounted for. 

A highly complex task

Securing pay for performance is an important but also highly complex task and at this NOCA event you will get in depth knowledge from both research at Copenhagen Business School and practitioners from Maersk Drilling and IKEA on how to approach this challenge. At the event we will look into some of the most difficult challenges related to incentive pay:

  • How to best define and assess performance? 
  • How to secure a pay for performance structure?
  • How to account for the perception of fairness in your pay structure?
