Does your SIP need a PIP? - Assessing the health of your compensation plan

Chad Albrecht, Steve Marley and Kyle Heller


After spending significant time, money, and effort designing sales compensation plans, companies often fail to see problems until they hear “noise” from the field—but by then, they’ve already lost sales and talent. However, “health checks” to monitor plan performance throughout the year can identify issues early and help you alleviate issues before your sales force becomes disgruntled. This Webinar will reveal the key metrics to monitor plan health, and give you ideal target zones for each of these metrics. And, most important, you’ll learn what to do if your metrics go outside of these zones and be able to take proactive steps to keep your sales force motivated and happy.
