Week 2 D2

Discuss how incentive pay plans – both individual and group – motivate employees to achieve high levels of performance.  Identify potential weaknesses of these plans and suggest steps that can be taken to make these plans highly effective.  Then, choose one industry that either an individual or group incentive pay plan would work best providing support for your reasoning (using personal examples to illustrate your point if possible).  Explain your answer. Respond to at least two of your fellow students’ postings.
