Research shows that pay for performance pays off: when approached correctly, this compensation model is an effective driver for increased motivation, productivity, and retention. Yet, while the approach has several advantages for both the employer and the employee, many business leaders have witnessed the challenges of plan design and implementation.

In this exclusive guide, Alison DiFlorio and Jeff Bacher of Exude, Inc. share their firsthand experiences in transitioning to a performance-based plan, as well as the importance of this approach to pay in the modern business landscape.
