In an increasingly competitive market, companies need to optimize sales efforts to help improve profitability and drive growth. For many firms, this means taking a “pay-for-performance” approach to sales compensation to encourage sales teams to focus on collaboration, service, and strategy, rather than simply closing deals.
To change organizational behaviors, sales incentive compensation plans should strike a balance between motivating strategic sales activities and simplicity—allowing sales professionals to focus on the things that matter, not calculating commissions. An uncoordinated sales compensation plan can disrupt your company’s efforts to optimize the relationship between the costs of sales, the revenue realized through those sales efforts, and, ultimately, company profitability.
Finance is playing a bigger role than ever in optimizing sales compensation. Learn how you can lead the charge at your company to improve your sales incentive compensation plan. By implementing effective plans and sales territories in the service of business goals, your company can realize increases in profitability while also promoting new areas for growth.
