Hello everyone,
Pros of Individual Incentives
a. Employees are motivated to perform at a higher level.
b. Individual incentives help with employee satisfaction, which leds to low turnover rates.
c. It can help with higher and quality productivity.
Cons of Individual Incentives
a. High employee turnover in low-performing team members.
b. Employee morale and behaviors can change in a negative way.
c. Conflict between employees.
Pros of Team-based incentive plan
a. It can help with group performance and tasks.
b. It can improve team morale and energy.
Cons of Team-based incentive plan
a. The team is rewarded as a whole, even if everyone isn’t pulling their weight.
b. Disagreements can occur if everyone is not on the same page.
After examining all these points, I suggest that management use Individual-based incentive plans. Individual-based incentive plans will encourage employees to work individually to complete tasks on time. If individual job satisfaction exists, employees will perform at their highest to meet the company’s goals, which leads to organizational profitability and financial growth.
