The Comp Plan and its Influence on the Sales Process

Understanding the direct impact of your compensation plan on your salespeople is imperative.

There are those that, when introduced to a new compensation plan, will immediately figure out the best way to optimize their profit-earning abilities. They will do what it takes to make the most money possible, in other words.

As Rich Chiarello explains, it’s the supervisor’s duty to maximize the correlation between their profiteering spirit and the benefit to the sales process. In other words, when the salespeople make money, the company should be making money too.
