Welcome to your easy-to-use employee management helper. A weighted scorecard is a research-based tool that makes completing systematic and objective employee performance reviews easier, faster, and more accurate. Sharing the data you take on employees is enough in itself sometimes to change their behavior. Using these scores makes the next step easy and a natural follow-up. Pay for performance. In a review of research related to pay contingencies published in the Journal of Organizational Behavior Management, Bucklin and Dickinson (2008) found individual monetary incentives to facilitate work performance more-so than hourly pay, when both are combined with regular performance feedback. They further noted that the most important factor in pay is that a ratio schedule exists between a pay amount per unit of work.
