Contractors in the construction industry have seen this problem all too often: productivity lags behind, the team can’t stay on schedule, and you spend extra days — or weeks — at a job site. So what can you do to fix this problem?
It comes down to employee compensation, productivity, and engagement. You can’t ask employees to go above and beyond without compensating them, or you’ll quickly lose your team. So what’s the solution? Create a partnership with your employees, motivate them, and make sure you’re reinforcing great work with rewards every single week.

Michael breaks down Protiv’s compensation solution, discusses why it’s vital to link compensation with productivity, and explains why bonuses and raises don’t work as well as weekly rewards.
