H.R Manager
Hi All,
We see a trend in our organization where employees get the annual salary increment cum bonus and putting down their papers the next day.
The bonus is an annual bonus which they get for serving the organization for an year.
This has been happeing for quite a long time.
Around 10 employees have done like this.
Does any body have any idea wherein we can have different kind of bonus system which will make employees stay longer and not make them put down their papers the next day.

It happens as employees know that they will not get Bonus if they resign early.
We have divided bonus in 2 parts before Holi (for Oct-March period) & Diwali(April-Sept.) and Performance Incentive payable in Jan & July for half yearly performance.

As suggested by Mamta, you could probably look at Half-yearly or quarterly bonus/ incentives. -Suja

You can link the bonus amount on a quartely payment and based on his last appraisal rating :
You can inform in advance that O rated will get 100 %, VG will get only 90%, Good will get only 75% etc....
Apr to June - Employee need to be part of the system till July 31.
July to Sep - Employee need to be part of the system till Oct 31.
Oct to Dec - Employee need to be part of the system till Jan 31.
Jan to Mar - Employee need to be part of the system till Apr 30.
This way you can differentiate Outstanding from Good performancers & the impact on the business too will be less since there is a quartely payout and people who plan not to wait will leave you early (impact mgt).

I think we are missing out the important issue that why they are cant be get bonus and leave. It has to be some other reason like better offers, less attachment, any environmental issue etc.
I suggest u find out this first, is there any grapevine happening...
Then work on bonus period.
Best of Luck :)

Hi Madhu,
Please look out the real reason of their resignation and work on that. Employees leaves the organisation for various reasons, one of them is salary also but there are other reasons also, so please find out that. One of the way is to conduct exist interviews, side by side you also work on your bonus system if you can improve that then it would be great. You should give quarterly performance bonus. I think one the reason may be that the employees feel that they have to wait for another one year for getting the next bonus, so it is better to change the job. This may be one of the reason. Also look for other reason and solve them.

I totally agree with Vije, Sumit and Wasim.:-P But I guess its a free market now and workers are getting more mobile (especially the Gen Y and even the X are following suit).

Just my 2 cents :idea:, employees are rewarded for bonuses because of the past year performance so that they work harder next year right? but even if they leave, it WAS :-D still their PAST effort that got them the bonus given.

I remember seeing somewhere that a good performance appraisal or feedback is important, without it reward management is futile:no:.

Well, if the manager had done a good PA, then the 'lousy' :sad: employee would have gotten a 'lousy' :cry: bonus and even if he/she leaves, the organisation shouldn't feel 'heartache' about the bonus given and instead should feel good that you have done the company good in removing mediocrity from the system.

BUT if the manager had done a good PA, then the 'good' :icon12: employee would have gotten a 'good' :grin: bonus and will most likely not leave. Should he/she still leaves, I guess there's a few things to think about: -
  1. He got a better offer:icon10:: re-look at your org's c & b (and also your org's compensable factors)whether there's anything to be done. If not, hey, people move on, even one day if you get a very, very good :lol: offer, I'm sure you'll probably consider too right?
  2. Could the company had under utilised his/her talent:ph34r:? .....that he/she can passionately use it in another org?
  3. As the old saying goes - "People don't leave the org, they leave their managers" Yup, the manager was supposed to be 'good' because he gave him/her a fat bonus but that's where some are mistaken. Not everyone can be controlled :icon8: or retained by money alone. Just because they can reward money doesn't mean the managers can 'abuse or mis-use' the employees. (yup, blame it on the managers :beatup: - who else or what else? )

Payment Of Bonus Is Not Charity.....
If Employer Is Paying Bonsu Its Mandatory By Law And It Should Be Disbursed Within 8 Months From The Close Of Balance Sheet.
If Employee Leave Company Its Due To Other Reasons Needs To Be Addressed Seperately.........
