Incentive Compensation Training

We offer incentive compensation training to individuals or small groups, tailored to meet your needs. Elliot Scott has delivered training remotely and in person all over the world, including in Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Singapore, and Cambodia. He also tutors individuals in analysis techniques and tools common to incentive compensation and how to design a sales incentive plan.

Elliot is on the sales compensation faculty of WorldatWork and teaches all of their sales compensation courses. He is also a designer of their certification exams.

Standard Incentive Compensation Training Overview

There are several reasons why companies may require in-house incentive compensation training.
For example:

The human resources organization may have been called upon to provide design support to various business units but does not have sufficient expertise to do so.
Incentive plan design responsibility may be decentralized. Managers in various businesses or geographies who have little or no experience with incentive plan design may be called upon to develop plans for small groups as a relatively minor part of their jobs, but are not equipped to do it well.
Sales managers must understand and support the incentive plan, and the rationale behind it, to their teams. Training that provides a working knowledge of incentive compensation theory and practice can enhance their ability to do so.
