“Pay for Performance” has made inroads in business, but has remained a hard sell

“Pay for Performance” has made inroads in business, but has remained a hard sell in public school systems. There are some successful examples where teacher pay has been linked to student test scores. For example, in Minnesota, some districts have stopped giving automatic raises for seniority and base 60% of all pay increases on performance. In Denver, unions and school districts designed an incentive program where teachers receive bonuses for student achievement and for earning national teaching certificates. However, some plans have not worked. For example, Cincinnati teachers voted against a merit pay proposal and Philadelphia teachers gave their bonus checks to charity rather than cashing them. It appears that having teachers involved in planning the incentive system is one key factor to success. The same can be said for all incentive plans – if employees don’t buy into them, they will not work.
Your paper may be based on a business entity of your choosing from the public or private sector and must answer the following Research Questions:
1. How could an organization measure the effectiveness of its pay-for-performance plan(s)?
2. From an employee’s perspective, what are the advantages and disadvantages of using a pay-for-performance plan?
3. From an employer’s perspective, what are the advantages and disadvantages of using a pay-for-performance plan?
Research Paper Instructions:

Case Study
Ann McConnell is chief information officer (CIO) at Jackson Spice Ingredients (JSI), a large Maryland spice and food ingredient company. In an industry that has a large national market presence, yet is global in its need for raw materials, JSI is always looking for ways to increase productivity and speed things up while staying connected to its worldwide sources. The mission of the organization is “to profitably expand its global leadership position in the spice, seasoning markets while being good stewards of the environment.”
Two years into the job, McConnell suggested to company president, Charles Jackson, that it implement a new global organizational structure that is focused on divisions or geographic areas, thus enabling a stronger focus on local environments and sustainability. One of the first steps would be to reorganize the current functional structure and moving or hiring new managers for each of the new divisions. The new divisional structure will enable more of a focus on the local environment, thus assisting managements in understanding how they can impact each demographic area.
In a meeting with managers, Charles and Ann need to introduce the new strategies. They know that three of the seven current managers will be reluctant to change to the new organizational structure and strategy. Charles and Ann need to consider what management strategies they will need to focus on how to get all the managers on board and they need to consider what management skills will be most needed to implement the new strategies.
Taking into consideration what you have learned the past few weeks on learning organizations, culture, and human capital, develop a strategy for leadership to use that will help management in their new roles and that will focus on the organizational vision and purpose.
