Designing a Global Sales Compensation Plan

Learn how to design and implement a solid global sales compensation design plan.

U.S. headquartered global organizations growing in today's dynamic environments often find themselves frustrated by inconsistencies in sales compensation plan administration, planning and practices. Many such organizations wish to avoid the conflicts raised by these inconsistencies by implementing a single global sales incentive compensation plan, in order to ensure consistent practices worldwide when it comes to when, why and how its diverse sales force will be paid. This material provides the tools needed to develop an effective global compensation plan. We will discuss key elements of a successful Global Plan, including drafting important terms, planning for and implementing a successful roll-out and addressing and resolving disputes arising from change management along the way. Whether integrating compensation plans following a first-time acquisition, or harmonizing existing plans worldwide, we will provide you the resources necessary to design and implement a strategy to make global incentive pay manageable, provide your workforce with enforceable agreements, adopt protocols to avoid common mistakes and disputes, and consistently address and resolve employee-relations matters when they do arise.
