Chuck,

Thanks for exposing the Machiavellian aspects of pay-for-performance!

For anyone interested in reading more about perverse compensation practices, check out the tongue-in-cheek WorldatWork Compensation Conundrum Blog series "Rewards That Don't" written by H. R. Screwtape at http://www.worldatwork.org/waw/adimComment?id=35680&from=blog-home-comp-cc.

Chuck, thanks for all the great blogs. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Just to set the record straight, I am a strong proponent for pay-for-performance as the best means of measuring and rewarding employee performance. That's why I get so ticked off to see the concept abused.

As with any worthwhile concept, there will always be those who try to manipulate the workings to serve their self interests. I like to shine the light of truth on those bad guys.
