Incentive Plans for Indirect Workers

Indirect workers are as much essential for production as direct workers and as such full increase in production can not be obtained without the full co-operation of the indirect workers.

Therefore, incentive may be introduced for indirect workers either to achieve the efficiency of the services they provide to direct workers or to induce foremen or supervisors to increase departmental efficiency and thus, reduce costs.

Also payment of bonus to indirect workers, when it is being paid to direct workers will prevent labour unrest.

Bases of Payment of Incentives

The indirect workers may be paid a bonus on any one of the following bases:

1. Where indirect workers serve a group of direct workers, they may be paid a bonus on the basis of performance of the group of direct workers whom they serve.

2. When indirect workers provide general services, bonus may be the basis of output of whole factory.

3. On the basis of job evaluation and merit rating of indirect workers.

4. On some arbitrary basis, like enhanced day rate so as to include an element of bonus in the rate itself.
