The following is part 21 of a multi-part series on The KHA Way, KHA Management Consulting’s Integrated Service Offering. This blog series includes the benefits of using KHA Management Consulting Services and the components included.

Previously, we discussed why it is important to align an individual’s performance metrics with a position’s processes and procedures. Here, we will tie everything together by explaining the importance of compensating to those figures within our Management Compensation Planning.

John E. Jones once said, “What gets measured gets done, what gets measured and fed back gets done well, what gets rewarded gets repeated.” Truer words regarding the Process Alignment subphase could not have been said. By giving individuals processes and procedures along with a metric to target and strive for, the tools are in hand that should give employees the means to get their job done well. However, if you want that success to continue, you must tie that position’s performance to compensation.

This allows employees to clearly know what is expected of them and, as a result, get rewarded adequately for its completion. At KHA, our team typically builds management compensation planning with a bottom-up approach. Every individual in the organization has a goal they must complete, each relating to the individual’s goal above, which ultimately relates to the performance of the organization. The better everyone does, leads to the better the firm does, which leads to higher employee compensation at the end of the year.

Our team at KHA has become experts in building management compensation models such as these for organizations and would love to do the same for you. Don’t miss the opportunity to discuss the unique nature of your business and see if our management compensation program is right for you.
