Decades of conventional wisdom suggests that, for performance bonuses to be fairer and more motivating, they should be based on objective or measurable performance criteria. However, new research from Dr Rebecca Hewett and Dr Hannes Leroy from Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) reveals that this is no longer case.
Erasmus Centre for Human Resource Excellence
The Erasmus Centre for HR Excellence is the RSM research centre for human resource management. The centre executes fundamental and applied research in the field of people management to support and develop observant, inspired and pragmatic business leaders who apply managerial knowledge in a sustainable and respectful way.
Organisations often take ‘the wrong steps’ when seeking highly talented professionals. In the new Dutch book Succesvol Binnenhalen van Toptalent (Succesfully Getting Top Talent On Board), authored by Dr Bart Dietz (Erasmus Centre for HR Excellence) and Rainier Beelen, the authors explain how managers should treat top talent during a job interview. Which is very different from dealing with ‘normal’ talent.
