  23. Profit-Sharing Plans • Predetermined index of profitability • Employees may not feel their jobs directly impact profits • The trend in recent variable-pay design is to combine the best of gain-sharing and profit-sharing plans • The plan must be self funding • Along with having the financial incentive, employees feel they have a measure of control

  24. Earnings-at-Risk Plans • Success sharing plan • Employee base pay is constant • Variable pay increases in successful years • No reduction in base pay and no variable pay in poorly-performing years • Risk sharing plan • Employee base pay varies • Base pay often reduced in poor performance years • Shifts part of risk of doing business from company to employee

Explosive Interest in Long-term Incentive Plans • Long-term incentives (LTIs) focus on performance beyond the one-year time line used as the cutoff for short-term incentive plans • Recent explosive growth in long term plans is spurred in part by a desire to motivate longer-term value creation
