When designed and implemented correctly, incentive programs are mutually beneficial to both the employee and the company. The company achieves the desired behaviour and outcome from the employee, and the employee receives a financial award for achieving the desired productivity benchmarks. This case is designed to help students understand how incentive programs are designed and to calculate specific incentive payments for employees.
