Managing Incentives in Tough Times
Michael Gibbs, Clinical Professor of Economics
During difficult times effective management becomes increasingly evident. Professor Michael Gibbs will discuss his research on how to make incentive systems work well, even in the toughest of times. If implemented properly, these efforts will pay high dividends when things normalize.
Professor Gibbs argues that employers should create incentive plans based on expansive, short-term goals. Punishing employees for events outside of their control is counterproductive and incorporating benchmarking is essential in keeping perspective during the downturn. Cooperation between employees and supervisors is more critical than ever, helping to bulid confidence and motivate employees.
Join us for an evening reception and cocktails as professor Gibbs shares his fascinating and practical insights.
