Research Assignment 2: Human Resource Management-600 Course
Research Assignment 2: Week 6
Overview Pay for Performance in America’s public schools is an extremely controversial issue. Although the process has made inroads in business and is a means to help determine promotions, pay, and retention it has not been so well received in the Public school systems. However, there are some successful examples where teacher pay has been linked to student test scores. In Minnesota for example, some districts have stopped giving automatic raises for seniority and base 60% of all pay increases on employee performance. In Denver, unions and school districts designed an incentive program where teachers receive bonuses for student achievement and for earning national teaching certificates. However, some plans have not worked. For example, Cincinnati teachers voted against a merit pay proposal and Philadelphia teachers gave their bonus checks to charity rather than cashing them. It appears that having teachers involved in planning the incentive system is one key factor to success. The same can be said for all incentive plans – if employees don’t buy into them, they will not work. Questions to Research: 1. How could an organization measure the effectiveness of their pay-for-performance plans? 2. From an employee’s perspective, what are the disadvantages of using a pay-for-performance plan? 3. From an employer’s perspective, what are the disadvantages of using a pay-for-performance plan?
Tip from your Professor: How does Pay for Performance (PfP) apply to the business world. The example given is about the school system, but the discussion is to be centered around pay for performance in organizations in general, not the school system. Please note the three prompts do not have the word “school” anywhere in them. The focus is on PfP, NOT the school system. Research Paper Instructions:

You must present ideas and positions and support or refute those arguments with credible references and sources. While assigned readings are important; you must conduct independent research of the subject matter and critically analyze the materials presented. References and sources should support your ideas, arguments, and opinions; and not be the basis of your paper .

Your paper should adhere to APA formatting requirements (APA style cover page, in-text citations for each listed reference, and a reference page are required).
