Member Query – Management Bonus

A member is looking at the weighting of their management bonus plans between group, business and personal elements.  They are considering whether they should move to a more equal weighting between elements and want to benchmark this against other organisation’s bonus designs and have asked the following:

1. How is your manager bonus plan weighted between the 3 elements - Group, Business, Personal?
2. What triggers each element paying out if it is an additive model rather than a multiplier approach?
3. What are the minimum and maximum pay out levels as a % of target bonus?
