Target employee incentive scheme


Published on

Every business organization will agree that most valuable asset for an organization will be Human Resources and we cannot measure the appropriate value of Human resources in monetary terms (Instead of Human Resource accounting methods are available). So we need to provide proper appraisal system or performance measurement system for the employees in order to measure their performance and provide satisfactory and equal benefits to all the employees. Proper appraisal system will help the organization to share the profits with the employees in a scientific way. So I have made a small contribution towards the employees appraisal system for RETAIL STORES.

  12. 12. Now we learn how to calculate incentive under Regular Incentive system Before going for the calculation,We needs to make a decision on which basis we will measure the performance on SalesValue or Sales Quantity APPROACH-1 ON THE BASIS OF SALESVALUE Immediate Sales Incentive Scheme Target of the Sales 20% Target of the Salary 30% Section of the Employee Name of the Employee Sales VALUE of the Previous period Current Actual Sales VALUE % of Actual Sales VALUE Target % Bonus Turnover % Actual Points Bonus Points Total Points Incentive for the Immediat e Sales Salary of the Employee Incenti ve of the employ ee Excess /(shor t) Boys Ready Made A 100,000 80,000 80% 120% -40% 50 - 50 750 5,000 1,050 (525) - - #DIV/0! 120% #DIV/0! #DIV/0 ! #DIV/0! #DIV/0 ! #DIV/0! - - - REGULAR INCENTIVE SYSTEM – ON VALUE BASIS
  13. 13. EXPLANATION FOR APPROACH-1 We will understand term by term about the valuation Procedure • We need to fix the percentage of growth in sales when compared to last yearSales Target • We need to fix the Percentage of salary which we will be budgeted as Incentive to the employeeBudgeted Incentive in Salary • Needs to mention the name of the section in which the employee is working during the periodSection of the employee • Needs to mention the name of the employee Name of the Employee • Needs to mention the employee sales in the section in the same period Sales of the Previous period
  14. 14. • We need to mention the sales of the employee in the current periodActual Sales • It will show the % of current sales in the Previous year sales of the employee% of Actual Sales • It gives an idea about the targeted sales % fixed for the employeesTarget % • It will show the extraordinary performance of the employee when he crossed theTarget fixed by the Management Bonus Turnover % • On the basis of the employee performance the sales % will be converted into Points (ReferTable-1)Actual Points EXPLANATION FOR APPROACH-1

Salary of the employee • It will show the budgeted incentive of the employee and it will get compared with the actual and variance can be visible immediately in the next column. Budgeted Incentive EXPLANATION FOR APPROACH-1
  16. 16. NOTES FOR APPROACH-1  An employee will be eligible for the incentive only when the employee achieves the 80% of the previous period sales.  On the basis of Percentage we will give points to the employees. The table is as follows  In case the employee crossed the Fixed target, then he will get the bonus points. For every 1% of extra sales the employee will get 0.5 points.  In the incentive gained by the employee, we will pay 70% for the immediate sales incentive (Regular Incentive) and the balance 30% will be paid as Non immediate Sales incentive (Periodical Incentive)  Through the variance in the calculation we can see the immediate effect on the budget of the incentive system.  The employee previous year sales will be fixed asTotal sales value of the particular section for the previous year is divided by number of employees working in the section in the previous year Percentage of Sales Actual Points 80%-90% 50 90%-100% 55 100%-110% 60 110%-120% 70 Table-1
  17. 17. The Management needs to be careful while fixing the Budgeted incentive % in salary and SalesTarget and it should be acceptable by the employees.

Hence it needs to be fair as per situation of the business. APPROACH-2 ON THE BASIS OF SALES QUANTITY Method -2 is exactly same procedure as Method-1. But only the difference will be in method – 1 we will calculate the Points on the basis of salesValue but in this method we will calculate on the basis of sales Qty. We can select any of the methods because each method has its own advantages. Hence Management needs to take decision on Method of Calculation REGULAR INCENTIVE SYSTEM–ON QUANTITY BASIS
