Teamwork, unions, public sector employees, and ethical considerations present distinct challenges to pay-for-performance programs. Teamwork – incentive pay, especially when it is awarded to individuals, can have a negative effect on group cohesiveness and productivity, and in some cases it may not offer significant benefits to a company. Unions – unionized employees are typically paid on the basis of seniority and job categories, with little range within a category, and few opportunities to receive performance-based pay. Public sector employees – because public sector work is often of a service nature, it can be hard to measure productivity in the same way manufacturing or retail firms do. Ethical considerations – organizations also need to consider the ethical implications of their performance-based plans (demanding employees work unpaid hours etc.). Flexible Benefits – a benefits plan that allows each employee to put together a benefits package individually tailored to his or her own needs and situation. a. Modular plans: predesigned packages of benefits, with each module put together to meet the needs of a specific group of employees. b. Core-plus plans: Consist of a core of essential benefits and a menu-like selection of other benefit options from which employees can select and add to the core.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
