PAY FOR PERFORMANCE (Hourly Employees)

For most companies, traditional pay systems do not adequately support World Class Manufacturing efforts. In fact, traditional pay systems often hinder progress because they’re not aligned with company goals or customer needs; at worst, they can increase payroll costs and reinforce an entitlement mentality.
