Profit Sharing Solved! Ditch Your Old Bonus Program Now
Wednesday, July 28, 1:30-2:30 PM Eastern

No matter what name you give it, when you pay out a bonus, you’re sharing a piece of your firm’s profits with your team.

In this class, Ryan Jolley of Jones & DeMille Engineering and Chandra Storrusten of Visible Value will take a deep dive into a true “profit-sharing” bonus model that one company uses to equitably distribute bonuses to their team and how they created and now use a cloud-based platform to do this for them.

Get answers to key questions:

  • What role does firm profitability and profit variability have in determining how much to share?
  • What is project profitability and why should project profitability be the primary driver in bonus calculations?
  • How do you reward everyone equitably when all projects aren’t created equal?
  • How do you reward those that don’t work on projects?
  • Your people are smart, so how do you keep them from “gaming the system” to make their projects appear more profitable?
