Synopsis

The survival and success of public organizations depends on employee satisfaction and motivation to improve performance. New Strategies for Public Pay addresses one of the strongest motivators - compensation. The book outlines proven strategies, many of which are successfully used in private industry, that are also well-suited for government organizations. Specific programs are described and analyzed by experts from government, academia, think tanks, labor unions, and private business, running the gamut from merit pay to competency-based pay to gainsharing. New Strategies for Public Pay introduces a range of alternative pay systems that show public sector managers how they can: - Set standards that match the unique needs of individual organizations - Stimulate desired new behaviors necessary to overcome the fear of change and business as usual mentality - Energize employees and provide a fresh incentive for continuing improved performance The decision whether or not to revolutionize pay systems is fundamental. The way compensation is addressed and managed can either hinder or help accomplish an organization's mission.

New Strategies for Public Pay offers a useful framework for planning compensation programs that are in line with the times and that will help create more efficient, flexible, and responsive public organizations.
