What are the benefits of designing a non-traditional compensation plan? How do you go about crafting a plan that’s right for your business? 

Many businesses within the legal industry abide by the “you eat what you kill” motto. In addition to this, many traditional leaders are not risk-takers, which makes a compensation plan shift seem impossible. However, Verne Harnish is here to share how anyone — including lawyers — can create a fair compensation plan that will attract the right talent, retain top employees, and drive success. 

In this episode of The Lawyer’s Edge Podcast, Elise Holtzman is joined by Verne Harnish, Founder and CEO of Scaling Up, and Co-hosts John Corcoran, Dr. Jeremy Weisz, Joshua Chin, and Adi Klevit to talk about designing a compensation plan that’s right for your business. Verne emphasizes the importance of aligning incentives with the customers’ needs, shares examples of real-life companies’ non-traditional compensation methods, and discusses the steps you can take to differentiate your compensation plan.
