Discover the changing world of incentive compensation. Would a psychologist agree with how we design incentive plans?
Sales compensation plans are traditionally designed around sales roles, and they assume every individual has the same motivations—which psychologists would disagree with. One of the great visions for sales compensation is to provide a level of personalization to sales comp plans to maximize the motivation of individual sales representatives. As a result, more and more companies are tailoring their incentive plans to increase motivation in their sales reps and encourage desired sales behaviors.
Join Steve Marley, co-author of The Future of Sales Compensation, in this webinar as he discusses how companies are enabling personalized incentives to benefit both the individual and the company.
This webinar is brought to you by Anaplan and its partner ZS Associates.

The UK has one of the biggest gender pay gaps in Europe as well as a growing skills shortage. Research shows 92% of people would use gender pay gap information when looking for a job and half of female employees would favour an organisation with a smaller gap (Business in the Community, 2015).

In this webinar we’ll be sharing analysis of the latest round of reporting and examining what it tells us about any progress in closing the gap. But it’s not just about the numbers, we’ll also be considering challenges and opportunities of the mandatory narrative and asking what ‘good’ looks like.
We’ll be discussing what employers are actually doing to close the gap with a focus on addressing the key ‘motherhood’ and ‘good daughter’ penalties.
