Although performance pay is used in many industrialized nations, the structure and success of this pay system vary widely depending on the institutions, regulatory framework, and legal settings of each country. This book makes the details and effects of these local variations clear for the first time. World-renowned experts on the programs in their respective countries provide in-depth analyses of performance pay in the United States, Canada, France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, Japan, and Brazil. They draw out common themes across the countries, as well as country-specific determinants of the use of performance pay and its level of success.
