or where teams are large)
5) restriction of productivitywhat constitutes a fair days work
Merit Pay Plans – link pay to performance on white-collar jobs; ineffective
-evaluate the performance of employees
Merit pay Plans Problems

2) small increases spread out over an entire year
Lump sum bonus awarded in single payment and not built into base pay
3) pay secrecy – cant assess the relative value of what they receive
Motivate Teamwork
1) profit sharing – when firm makes a profit, some of this is returned to employees in cash bonus
or a retirement supplement
-not highly motivational because too many factors
-hard to see the impact of ones efforts on overall outcomes
-work best in smaller firms that regularly turn a profit
2) employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs)employees own a set amount of a company’s shares
and stake in the companys future earnings and success
-might purchase shares at a fixed price; match employees contributions
-work best in small firms; bad in weak economy when share price goes down
