CHAPTER 1

INTRODUCTION

1|Page
Compensation constitutes the largest part of the employee retention
process. The employees always have high expectations regarding their
compensation packages. Compensation packages vary from industry to
industry. So an attractive compensation package plays a critical role in
retaining the employees.

Compensation includes salary and wages, bonuses, benefits,


prerequisites, stock options, bonuses, vacations, etc. While setting up the
packages, the following components should be kept in mind:
Salary and monthly wage: It is the biggest component of the
compensation package. It is also the most common factor of comparison
among employees. It includes

o Basic wage

o House rent allowance


o Dearness allowance
o City compensatory allowance

Salary and wages represent the level of skill and experience an individual
has. Time to time increase in the salaries and wages of employees should be
done. And this increase should be based on the employees performance and
his contribution to the organization.

Bonus: Bonuses are usually given to the employees at the end of the year or
on a festival.

Economic benefits: It includes paid holidays, leave travel concession, etc.

Long-term incentives: Long term incentives include stock options or stock


grants. These incentives help retain employees in the organization's startup

2|Page
stage.

Health insurance: Health insurance is a great benefit to the employees. It


saves employees money as well as gives them a peace of mind that they
have somebody to take care of them in bad times. It also shows the
employee that the organization cares about the employee and its family.

After retirement: It includes payments that an Employee gets after he


retires like EPF (Employee Provident Fund) etc.

Miscellaneous compensation: It may include employee assistance


programs (like psychological counseling, legal assistance etc), discounts on
company products, use of a company cars, etc.

The compensation of every employee is decided by the company


owners through the board of directors (in the case of the most highly
compensated executive positions) and the management team (or
"management committee") (for everyone else). The board of directors may
have a personnel and compensation committee that deals specifically with
labor compensation.

Workers union
In some countries the employee compensation may be negotiated with a
workers union. The workers union will in many cases deal with for example
a minimum wage limit and will not deal with the management team
compensation but instead leave that to the company.

Means of compensation
In a typical modern US corporation, the CEO and other top executives are
paid contractual salary plus contractual bonuses, which usually have some
performance criteria attached depending on the role of the executive. For

3|Page
example, the Sales Director's performance related bonus may be based on
incremental turnover; a CEO's could be based on incremental profitability.

with a mixture of cash and shares of the company which are almost always
subject to vesting restrictions. The vesting term refers to the period of time
before the recipient has the right to transfer shares and realize value. Vesting
can be based on time, performance or both. For example a highly paid CEO
would get 1 million in cash, and 1 million in company shares.
Perquisites ("perks")
Other components of an executive compensation package may include such
perks as generous retirement plans, a health insurance, a chauffered
limousine, an executive jet, interest free loans for the purchase of housing,
etc.

Fortune 500 compensation


During 2003, about half of Fortune 500 CEO compensation was in cash pay
and bonuses, and the other half in vested restricted stock, and gains from
exercised stock options according to Forbes magazine ([1]). Forbes
magazine counted the 500 CEOs compensation to $3.3 billion during 2003
(which makes $6.6 million a piece) (notice that that includes gain from
stock call options used, the options may have been rewarded many years
before the option to buy is used).
Forbes categories of compensation
The categories that Forbes use are (1) salary (cash), (2) bonus (cash), (3)
other (market value of restricted stock received), and (4) stock gains from
option exercise (the gains being the difference between the price paid for
the stock when the option was exercised and that days market price of the
stock). If you see someone "making" $100 million or $200 million during
the year, chances are 90% of that is coming from options (earned during
many years) being exercised.

Typical compensation
The typical salary in the top of the list is $1 million - $3 million (Immelt).
4|Page
The typical top cash bonus is $10 million - $15 million (Henry R.
Silverman). The highest stock bonus is $20 million (Fuld). The highest
option exercise have been in the range of $100 million - $200 million
(Reuben Mark).

Stock options
Supporters of stock options say that they align the self-interest of the CEO
to that of the company, since options are only valuable if the stock price
remains above the option's strike price. Many critics have called for options
to be counted as a corporate expense, which would impact a company's
income statement and make the distribution of options accountable to
shareholders. Detractors of stock options charge that they are granted
excessively. Stock options have also been criticised because they cause a
confBajaj Allianzt of interest in which the CEO artificially raises the current
stock price to cash in stock options at the expense of the long term health of
the company.

Restricted stock
Executives are also compensated with restricted stock, which is stock given
to an executive that cannot be sold until certain conditions are met and has
the same value as the market price of the stock at the time of grant.

Tax issues
Salary is taxable to an individual at a high individual rate. If part of that
income can be converted to capital gain, for example by granting stock
options to executives, a more advantageous tax treatment may be obtained.

1.1 COMPENSATION PLANS


Employee compensation can be a sensitive subject, and people get very
passionate when trying to determine the most appropriate compensation
plan for any business. Many human resource-related concerns need to be
addressed, but equally important is understanding the financial aspects of
employee compensation. Employee compensation is much more than just
5|Page
the direct amount that you pay an employee. There are other costs that need
to be incorporated in the overall payroll budget. Here are five areas to
consider when figuring out how to compensate employees:

1. Incentives and bonus plans need to have clear guidelines to minimize any
confusion. They shouldn't be seen as a guaranteed payment, but instead
should be measured by performance of the individual, team or company. If
end-of-the-year bonuses are given every year regardless of performance,
they no longer serve as a motivating factor; they are expected payments.
Incentives and bonus payments should be reserved for employees who go
above and beyond their everyday performance to help the company exceed
its profitability goals.

2. Understand the costs of a benefit plan before you offer it. Offering
benefits is a nice incentive for employees, but they can be a very costly
burden to the company. So when assessing what benefits to add, consider
not only today's direct costs, but also long-term expenses. Adding and
removing benefits can be very demoralizing to your staff. So don't add
anything you don't plan to continue long term. Of course, unexpected
situations can always arise that may affect your ability to continue offering
a certain benefit, but employees will become disgruntled when benefits are
added and removed frequently.
3. You also need to calculate employer payroll taxes into your overall
payroll budget. Employers incur expenses, such as Social Security and
Medicare tax, unemployment insurance for both state and federal entities,
and workers' compensation insurance.

4. What type of position will the individual hold? Does it best correlate with
direct payment on an hourly or salaried basis or is commission a better
arrangement? Employees in sales-related positions should have commission
as a part of their compensation package. Whether they're 100 percent
commission or some other combination depends on the circumstances.
These types of positions are most successful when their compensation is

6|Page
tied to their performance. It's a win-win for both the company and the
employee.

5. Payroll budgeting is a necessity. There are many aspects to budgeting for


a company, and a payroll budget is one component that should be done as
well. Payroll budgets need to include direct wage and salary payments,
commissions, bonuses, incentives, payroll taxes and insurance, along with
any other directly related costs the business incurs in the payroll function.
There will only be so much money that can be allocated to the complete
compensation package and knowing that up front will help you in setting
your commission, incentive, bonus and raise strategies up front.

Compensating employees is a deBajaj Allianzate balance between meeting


the employees' expectations and the company's financial goals. Assessing
these five areas when putting together or evaluating your compensation
program will help you ensure you're proactively moving your company in
the right direction. Our employees are our most valuable assets and we
should make sure we're treating them that way.

1.2 COMPENSATION MANAGEMENT SCENARIO


Businesses strive to create a performance oriented culture wherein
employees are highly productive and are aptly rewarded for the same.
However, the compensation process is froth with problems and is laborious,
costing businesses high operational and administrative costs.

Automating the compensation process is one significant factor towards


resolving the complexities of the compensation process.

Below are two scenarios wherein two of the problems are identified and the
process of resolving them and changing them into an advantage is
described.

1. Transforming the bane of a manual based compensation system to


the benefits of a automated compensation system

7|Page
Organization Profile
A leading insurance firm, that offers insurance and investment products for
the US market. The firm has recruited and trained about 30,000 insurance
agents to interface with customers and sell their products. The firm has done
so, with an aggressive business plan & strategy in place, to achieve a
significant growth over the previous year.

The Challenge
The firm however, has a manual & outdated process to calculate its
commission and incentive payout for its agents, which is resulting in high
operations and administrative costs and also costly errors in terms of wrong
payments made. The inefficiency has also resulted in deep employee dis-
satisfaction and consequently, high attrition. If this wasn't enough, the firm
constantly spends its precious resources on resolving disputes arising of the
discrepancies.

The Strategy
The strategy is to replace the manual process of commission entry and
processing with an automated system, so as to calculate commission and
bonuses more accurately and efficiently. The system would also enable
greater flexibility in terms of applying varying compensation pay structures
across the agent spectrum, which isn't possible currently.

The Solution & its Benefits


An automated commission compensation system is created & implemented.
The benefits that the system brings are (brought were):

Accurate & quick calculation of commission payments


Flexibility to create different compensation structures for different
products, with easy creation and maintenance of the same.
Reduction in operations and administrative costs
Elimination of payment errors

8|Page
Automated electronic production and distribution of commission
statements

Now, with the aid of the above benefits, the firm has not only been able to
cut costs and achieve employee satisfaction at the same time, but has also
achieved the target it had laid out for itself.

The above are only a few of the many possibilities & benefits, of
automating the compensation process.

Contact us to know the other benefits that are there, and how these can be
translated to your business.

2. Overcoming the inefficiencies associated with the process of


gathering employee details from various sources, with a compensation
data warehouse.
Customer Profile:
A leading financial services firm wanted to upgrade its compensation
system. The organization wanted to streamline and automate its
compensation structure, to create a performance oriented culture to optimize
employee performance & thereby business success.

9|Page
The Challenge:
The organization however, had multiple databases of employee information
from which relevant information had to be drawn for the purpose of
compensation & benefits administration. The staff constantly found
themselves, missing out on key employee data, spending enormous amount
of time on gathering and verifying information and at times rewarding the
wrong employee.

The challenge was to create a single, integrated system so as to effectively


administer their compensation and benefits program.

The Solution:
The solution here was to create a consolidated compensation data
warehouse, which would gather and enable management of employee
information from multiple sources.

It would also enable:

Obtaining details of the different rating measurements by appraisers


Total compensation review with the standardizing of different ratings
and producing an performance index for each individual
Allocation of reward & benefits budget, division wise; thereby
facilitating strategic compensation-planning

The Results:
The Organization now has all its employee details consolidated into one
database, making it easy to retrieve & validate the required information
whenever needed. It could also retrieve historical records easily.

Besides that, measurement formats were recognized & standardized and the
divisional budget allocation within the overall budget could be decided
according to performance.

Overall, the earlier mistakes made were eliminated and the amount of time
and effort spent on searching, retrieving and validating information were

10 | P a g e
reduced significantly, resulting in considerable administrative costs savings.
Also the entire process of allocating budgets division wise was streamlined
and made easy.

1.3 INNOVATIONS IN COMPENSATION SYSTEMS


As the market becomes more dynamic and competitive, companies are
trying harder to improve performance. Since companies cannot afford to
continually increase wages by a certain percentage, they are introducing
many innovative compensation plans tied to performance. Several of these
plans are discussed in this section.
Incentive Compensation Plan. Incentive compensation pays
proportionately to employee performance. Incentives are typically given in
addition
to the base wage; they can be paid on the basis of individual, group, or
plant-wide performance. While individual incentive plans encourage
competition among employees, group or plant-wide incentive plans
encourage cooperation and direct the efforts of all employees toward
achieving overall company performance.
Skill-Based or Knowledge-Based Compensation. Skill-based pay is a
system that pays employees based on the skills they possess or master, not
for the job they hold. Some managers believe that mastery of certain sets of
skills leads to higher productivity and therefore want their employees to
master a series of skill sets. As employees gain one skill and then another,
their wage rate goes up until they have mastered all the skills. Similar to
skill-based pay is knowledge-based pay. While skill-based pay evolved in
the manufacturing sector, pay-for-knowledge developed in the service
sector (Henderson, 1997). For example, pubBajaj Allianz school teachers
with a bachelor's degree receive the lowest rate of pay, those with a master's
degree receive a higher rate, and those with a doctorate receive the highest.

11 | P a g e
Team-Based Compensation. As many companies introduce team-based
management practices such as self-managed work teams, they begin to offer
team-based pay. Recognizing the importnace of close cooperation and
mutual development in a work group, companies want to encourage
employees to work as a team by offering pay based on the overall
effectiveness of the team.
Performance-Based Compensation. In the traditional sense, pay is
considered entitlement that employees deserve in exchange for showing up
at work and doing well enough to avoid being fired. While base pay is given
to employees regardless of performance, incentives and bonuses are extra
rewards given in appreciation of their extra efforts. Pay-for-performance is a
new movement away from this entitlement concept (Milkovich and
Newman, 1996). A pay-for-performance plan increases even the base pay
so-called merit increasesto reflect how highly employees are rated on a
performance evaluation. Other incentives and bonuses are calculated based
on this new merit pay, resulting in substantially more total dollars for highly
ranked employee performance. Frequently, employees also receive an end-
of-year lump sum bonus that does not build into base pay.

1.4 EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION


Recently, people have been concerned with the excessively high level of
executive compensation. According to Business Week 's annual executive
pay survey, in 1997 Sanford Weill, CEO of Travelers Group, collected $7.5
million in salary and bonuses plus $223.2 million for long-term
compensation, totaling $230.7 million. In the same year, Roberto Goizueta,
CEO of Coca-Cola, earned a total of $111.8 million, including annual
salary, bonuses, and long-term compensation. Compensations of the twenty
highest-paid executives ranged from $28.4 million to $230 million.
Frequently, executive compensation becomes controversial. Are these
compensations excessive? What justifies such a large compensation for

12 | P a g e
executives? Justification of such a large sum of compensation is linked to
the company's performance. In fact, a significant portion of executive
compensation results from exercising stock options, which were quite
valuable in the recent "bull" market. And yet ordinary working-class
Americans are outraged by the shocking contrast in pay raises: Annual
executive pay at large companies rose 54 percent in 1996, whereas the pay
raises of most working-class people were in the 3 percent to 5 percent range
during the same period.
An executive compensation package is typically composed of (1) base
salary, (2) annual incentives or bonuses, (3) long-term incentives (e.g., stock
options), (4) executive benefits (e.g., health insurance, life insurance, and
pension plans), and (5) executive perquisites. Considering the high turnover
rate of competent executives, offering a competitive salary is crucial in
attracting the top candidates.
Frequently, annual bonuses play a more important role than base salary in
executive compensations. They are primarily designed to motivate better
performance. In order to underscore the importance of financial
performance, usually measured by the company's stock price, top executives
are offered stock options. Sometimes, exercising stock options yields more
cash benefits to executives than do annual salaries.
In addition to monetary compensation, executives enjoy many different
types of perquisites, commonly called "perks." Such executive perks
include the luxurious office with lush carpets, the executive dining room,
special parking, use of a company airplane, company-paid membership in
high-class country clubs and associations, and executive travel
arrangements. Many companies even offer executives tax-free personal
perks, including such things as free access to company property, free legal
counseling, free home repairs and improvements, and expenses for vacation
homes or boats.
Another perk that became popular recently is the so-called golden parachute
a protection plan for executives in the event that they are forced out of the
13 | P a g e
organization. Such severance frequently results from a merger or hostile
take over of the company. The golden parachute provides either a
significant one-time sum to the departing executive or a guaranteed
executive position in the newly merged company.

1.5 COMPENSATION IN INDIA

Compensations are usually paid either as base pay and/or as a variable


pay.The 'base pay' implies that the amount of compensation is based on the
role played by an employee in the organization and in the market showing
the expertise required to conduct that role.Under it,all retiral benefits like
superannuation,provident fund,gratuity and house rent allowances are
proportionate to basic salary. Whereas 'variable pay' means that the amount
of compensation is based on the performance appraisal of an employee in
that role,that is,how well they accomplish their goals.

In India,the law governing the provisions of compensation is th e


Workmen's Compensation Act, 1923 (WC Act). The Act is administered
by State Governments through Commissioners for Workmen's
Compensation. The Act provides for the compensation to the workman or
his family in cases of employment related injuries resulting in death or
disability.It includes persons employed in
factories,mines,plantation,mechanically propelled vehicles,construction
works and certain other hazardous occupations.The amount of
compensation to be paid depends on the nature of the injury and the average
monthly wages and age of workmen.The minimum and maximum rates of
compensation payable for death (in such cases it is paid to the dependents of
workmen) and for disability have been fixed and is subject to revision from
time to time.

The Workmen's Compensation Act, 1923 was amended by the


Workmen's Compensation(Amendment) Act,2000.Under this
14 | P a g e
amendment,the workmen or their family members will get the
compensation money at the enhanced rate if they die or get disabled.

Many insurance companies have also designed certain poBajaj Allianzies


relating to compensation insurance. For example:- Workmen's
Compensation Insurance by United India Insurance Company Limited.
:- Under it an employer is required to pay compensation to his workers who
receive injuries or contract occupational diseases during the course of their
work. Such compensation is payable under the Workmen's Compensation
Act. An employer may obtain an insurance poBajaj Allianzy to cover such
liability. The premiums are payable usually on the basis of wages. It is also
known as 'Employers' Liability Insurance'. This poBajaj Allianzy provides
insurance against the following risks:-

Indemnity to insured against his liability as an employer' to accidental


injuries (including fatal) sustained by the workman' whilst at work.
On extra premium-medical, surgical, and hospital expenses including
the cost of transport to hospital for accidental employment injuries.
Liability in respect of diseases mentioned under the Workmen's
Compensation Act , on additional premium, which arise out of and in
the course of employment.

CHAPTER 2

REVIEW OF LITERATURE

16 | P a g e
The effect of performance-based remuneration has not
yet been sufficiently studied, except for the case where
Haftel and Martin (1993) conducted a survey targeting 48
high-technology companies in the State of Connecticut and
found that both pecuniary compensation and nonpecuniary
compensation (e.g. awards) were effective in increasing the
number of patents. However, they pointed out that payment
of a large amount of compensation over $50,000 was only
effective for small-sized companies including venture
companies, suggesting that many researchers in venture
companies prefer pecuniary compensation. Lach and
Schankerman (2004) analyzed whether the system to pay
university researchers compensation in proportion to royalty
income would increase a universitys total royalty income.
They found that an increase by 1% of the royalty share
for researchers would increase royalty income by 4.5%.
They also found that this effect was produced by two
factors---increased incentives for university researchers and
the flow of researchers who
prefer pecuniary compensation into universities.
Savitsky (1991) conducted a questionnaire survey
targeting 203 US companies, and found that about 91% of
all target companies provided a fixed amount of
compensation for the filing of a patent appBajaj Allianzation,
whereas companies providing compensation for remarkable
inventions and those providing compensation based on
profits only accounted for 15% and 7% respectively. Savitsky
pointed out that in the United States, although the transfer
of employees inventions was effected by a contract
between companies and researchers, performance-based
compensation systems were adopted by only a limited
17 | P a g e
number of companies, and this very fact suggested that
performance-based compensation systems might not be
effective. Meier (1998) pointed out that payment of
compensation at the time of transfer of inventions as
required under the German law on employee inventions
would increase costs incurred by companies in obtaining
patents and also produce other adverse effects, such as
disputes between inventors and companies over payment of
compensation, prevention of the exchange of information
among researchers, and researchers tendency to prevent
others from making inventions that would replace their own
invention. Nagaoka (2006) presented problems with
compensation systems, such as uncertainty of inventions,
evaluation risk and costs, and multi-task issues, pointing out
that researcher evaluation systems should basically be
diverse and that limiting the scope of options by law
wasinappropriate.
In an attempt to investigate the effect of performance-
based compensation systems, Harhoff and Hoisl (2004) and
the Institute of Intellectual Property (IIP) (2003) conducted
questionnaire surveys targeting inventors. Harhoff and Hoisl
targeted 3,346 inventors whose inventions had been filed
for patents at the European Patent Office (EPO). In the
survey, 60% of the respondents regarded the German law
on employee inventions as providing R&D incentives,
whereas 30% evaluated the law negatively. Among the
reasons for the negative view, a small amount of
compensation was chosen by the most respondents, at
33.6%, with an opaque calculation method chosen by 32%
and delays in payment by 15.3%, indicating that most
respondents found problems with the amount of
18 | P a g e
compensation. The IIP (2003) targeted 2,394 Japanese
inventors in its questionnaire survey. Among the possible
R&D incentives, growth of the companys business,
better evaluation as a researcher, and compensation
ranked first to third, suggesting that pecuniarycompensation
is not the most effective means toincrease R&D work
incentives for inventors.
Inresponse to the question as to whether or not
compensation provides incentives, 60% of the respondents
answered positively whereas 25% answered negatively.
Among the reasons for the negative view, the small
amount of compensation ranked first, followed by delays
in payment. This also suggests, as the survey by Harhoff
and Hoisl (2004) indicates, that most inventors are
dissatisfied with the amount of compensation.

8.2 CONCLUSION
Compensation and Reward system plays vital role in a business
organization. Since, among four Ms, i.e. Men, Material, Machine and
Money, Men has been most important factor, it is impossible to imagine a
business process without Men. Every factor contributes to the process of
production/business. It expects return from the business process such as rent
is the return expected by the landlord, capitalist expects interest and
organizer i.e. entrepreneur expects profits. Similarly the labour expects
wages from the process.

Labour plays vital role in bringing about the process of production/business


in motion. The other factors being human, has expectations, emotions,
ambitions and egos.
62 | P a g e
Labour therefore expects to have fair share in the business/production
process. Therefore a fair compensation system is a must for every business
organization. The fair compensation system will help in the following:

o An ideal compensation system will have positive impact on the


efficiency and results produced by employees. It will encourage the
employees to perform better and achieve the standards fixed.

o It will enhance the process of job evaluation. It will also help in setting
up an ideal job evaluation and the set standards would be more realistic
and achievable.
o Such a system should be well defined and uniform. It will be apply to
all the levels of the organization as a general system.
o The system should be simple and flexible so that every employee
would be able to compute his own compensation receivable.
o It should be easy to implement, should not result in exploitation of
workers.
o It will raise the morale, efficiency and cooperation among the workers.
It, being just and fair would provide satisfaction to the workers.
o Such system would help management in complying with the various
labor acts.
o Such system should also solve disputes between the employee union
and management.
o The system should follow the management principle of equal pay.
o It should motivate and encouragement those who perform better and
should provide opportunities for those who wish to excel.
o Sound Compensation/Reward System brings peace in the relationship
of employer and employees.
o It aims at creating a healthy competition among them and encourages
employees to work hard and efficiently.
o The system provides growth and advancement opportunities to the
deserving employees.

63 | P a g e

satisfied workforce. This minimizes the labour turnover. The
organization enjoys the stability.
o The organization is able to retain the best talent by providing them
adequate compensation thereby stopping them from switching over to
another job.
