Section 1: Salaries, incentives and bonus structures

The introduction is meant to provide an idea and give an overview of the main subjects that will be presented in the course.


This introductory subchapter presents the pillars of the problem of trust and fairness from an economic perspective in order to allow the person taking the course to understand the subtleties presented in the following chapters.


This chapter presents the environment that will be analyzed, which is the firm, together with the main compensation strategies followed by those, their strengths and weaknesses, and the conditions that must be met in order to get the best results


In this chapter the student will learn about the importance of group incentives and how to use them efficiently. In addition the chapter talks about the possibilities to increase efficiency by redesigning jobs, when and how to use promotions, and how to fairly create compensation plans for executives.


We believe that there are many problems surrounding salaries and incentives, and thus we went more in depth with some of the most relevant issues that can arise in firms.


“The good jobs strategy” gives some examples of successful corporations and it presents their strategies, in order to prove that our discussion is not only theoretical, but it actually has an immense impact in the development of firms


As a complement to the theoretical information, this chapter gives some examples on each of the subjects discussed in this course.
