Currently, all employees receive a base salary plus 9.5% superannuation. StarTV’s CEO is proposing that they use one company-wide incentive plan that all employees and managers participate in. The plan is based on equal sharing of a bonus pool determined on the basis of 30 per cent of all profit earned over $3 million.


The CEO explains that the plan should be structured this way to encourage an organisational team view.  The brief from the board is to ‘develop an incentive plan in line with the company’s strategy of revenue growth through high-quality television production and regional access, and align the interests of the executive team with the shareholders’.
