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. There is an element of perceived fairness, that in its essences contradicts the idea of an objective truth. There is the element of the actual performance definition and performance assessment that also has many layers. 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 Nordea and IKEA on how to approach this challenge. At the event we will look into:
- 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?
