STRATEGIC COMPENSATION DECISIONS (1 of 2)

Firms need to manage their compensation philosophy to ensure that employees believe they are being treated fairly.

Entitlement philosophy is at one end of the continuum, and performance philosophy is at the other end.

 

Entitlement philosophy: Assumes that individuals who have worked another year with the company are entitled to pay increases with little regard for performance differences.

 

Pay-for-performance philosophy: Assumes that compensation decisions reflect performance differences.
