Performance Pay Workshop: Conference Slides

Pub. Date
27 June, 2014

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.
