A highlight from Christmas Do's, Bonuses and F-Bombs with Dr. Gia Wiggins
It's important that when you provide bonuses and trying to break people out of the cycle of we're just gonna sit in the room the executive management team and we're going to decide you know what everyone should get. Do not do that if you're doing performance reviews and you've got your hand on people's performance purposely in your heart assault what you're going to give at the beginning of the year and then if they need those goals then this is what the bonus should be. This is the performance based on how the company is doing and how that person wasn't individual contributor but to wait till the end of the year. It is a recipe for discrimination. It is a recipe for unfair treatment. Just make the decision. I'm going to give them three percent or five percent of their annual salary. If they meet these goals if they don't meet them you know maybe you prorate it down a little bit lower or you don't give it all but if you are giving additional money at the end of the year without it being connected to performance you are missing a phenomenal opportunity to make sure that you gave very performance. You're losing it. Hey everybody welcome to the show today. Dr geo wiggins back with us and we're gonna talk about some holidays.
