Best Practices in Commission Pay Plans
|Date / Time:
There are few management tools that work as well in recruiting, directing, motivating and retaining sales people as a strong commission plan. This is critical because sales people are often highly paid, remote from headquarters and entrusted with customer relationships (very valuable assets). A properly designed commission plan clearly and personally communicates the strategy of the organization to resources that have direct impact on financial performance.Methods and Metrics for Commission Program Assessment
The design and deployment of a new commission plan can create a 5-10 percent uplift in revenue in a single year. However, mistakes in commission plan design are quite common and can have disastrous effects on performance.
Help your company avoid sales force turnover, dissatisfied customers, runaway expense and in worst cases, litigation, by understanding the core elements and decisions in commission design, management and optimization.
Aon Hewitt's Sales Force Effectiveness Practice leader will introduce a framework to help make large, complex, cross-functional decisions about commissions smaller and simpler. This audio conference will also use real company examples to highlight best and worst practices.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
