Organisations today are increasingly concerned about the effectiveness of
their variable pay programmes. In a simple test to evaluate its relevance in
your organisation, ask yourself the number of objectives your variable pay
programme aims to meet. If you have more than two, you probably have an
ineffective programme. Even companies that get the objective right, more often
than not, do a poor job on the execution and communication.
