"Principle 4. Include Nonfinancial TargetsTrechos retirados de "Comp Targets That Work"
Our final recommendation is to incorporate targets that are not directly related to sales and profits in any CEO performance contract. Although the research we base this article on didn’t explicitly measure the effects of nonfinancial targets, it’s clear that many of them are hard to game.
