  Search Results: gainsharing

An employee motivation plan that provides bonuses or other financial rewards to employees based on how much they improve performance or productivity. Gainsharing is usually provided on a team, rather than an individual basis. To make sense as a motivation technique, gainsharing only makes sense if the employees have some control over the conditions that can lead to the improvement in productivity or performance.
