Economists get pretty fixated about paying workers for their performance. That's why we devoted November's Special Issue of the NIESR Review to the topic. We followed up with a one-day workshop, which was free to attend, on a first-come-first-served basis. The workshop brought together academics, practitioners and policy advisers to explore trends in performance pay, its consequences for employers and employees, and the policy implications.
