Gordon, Allison A.; Kaswin, Jennifer L.
[Excerpt] This paper will evaluate the effectiveness of broad-based employee incentives, identifying the features of effective plans.

In addition, the terms “variable pay plan” and “pay for performance” are used interchangeably as they appeared in the original sources.
