ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the survey conducted by human resources consultant Mercer, which showed that the average short-term incentive payment for executives in Australia's leading companies was 14% higher in 2008-2009 than in 2007-2008. It also cites that the long-term incentive like cash was 11% lower in 2009 than in 2008. According to Yolande Foord of Mercer, the short-term incentive may be favored because of board and management's focus on reaching short-term performance and goals.
