Most Helpful Customer Reviews

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By John P Bernat on July 8, 2008
Format: Paperback
This book promised a great deal. Given the "new workforce" paradigm, I was eager to read about new compensation strategies that would meet their different interests.

Instead we got this.

What you'll read here is a rehashing of old, largely academical theories which have been proven flawed or outright wrong by success stories in the field. It was used, for example, as a call to arms by content motivational theorists who still do not believe in variable pay and incentive compensation.

As my mom used to say, if you're looking for trouble, you'll find it. Grinding the old ax that rewarding good performance is just, well, just morally wrong is what many of these articles resonate.

If you've seen a good book of success stories which tie compensation approaches to create powerful, clear business strategy execution, would you let me know what it is?
