Designing and Managing Variable Pay Schemes as part of Compensation and Total Reward Management to Meet Business Needs and Drive Employee Performance

Variable-Pay (Bonuses and Incentives) Masterclass



Many companies in Asia and indeed globally have some form of incentive or bonus scheme, but many are based either on years-of-service or seniority or company performance, with little or no recognition of individual performance. In an increasingly competitive environment, when you want to attract and retain the best individual employees and high-performers, these methods of paying for performance may be unsustainable in the long-term and other approaches to variable pay and bonuses and incentive schemes may be necessary.

Course Objectives

The aim of this course is to show you how to develop practical bonus schemes, incentive schemes and variable pay policies that meet the needs of the business, while allowing you to attract, motivate and retain good quality employees. Most employers want to ensure that they can "attract, retain and motivate" the best employees and teams, and this course will cover the key areas in the overall compensation and benefits package that enable employers to adopt best-practices and help them compete more effectively in the war for talent whilst achieving optimal cost-effective performance for the employer.


Numerous forms of variable compensation, and incentives and benefit plans, provide employees with the opportunity to earn higher pay where performance can merit. You will explore the different types of variable pay and incentive plan options available including variable pay as a total remuneration strategy, and both short and long term incentive plans and options. You will also cover key trends in both the Asia and global compensation and benefits marketplace for employees, and learn how to use the overall remuneration package more effectively to manage employee performance and achieve better business results through a more effective approach to the compensation and benefits programme.
