Milkovich and Wigdor suggest that this is the reason for the common separation of evaluations and pay, with evaluations primarily used to allocate training.
Finally, while the problem of compression of ratings originates on the supervisor-side, related effects occur when workers actively attempt to influence the appraisals supervisors give, either by influencing the performance information going to the supervisor: Tournaments[ edit ] Much of the discussion here has been in terms of individual pay-for-performance contracts; but many large firms use internal labour markets Doeringer and PioreRosen as a solution to some of the problems outlined.
Here, there is "pay-for-performance" in a looser sense over a longer time period. There is little variation in pay within grades, and pay increases come with changes in job or job title Gibbs and Hendricks See the superstar article for more information on the tournament theory. Workers are motivated to supply effort by the wage increase they would earn if they win a promotion.
Some of the extended tournament models predict that relatively weaker agents, be they competing in a sports tournaments Becker and Huselidin NASCAR racing or in the broiler chicken industry Knoeber and Thurmanwould take risky actions instead of increasing their effort supply as a cheap way to improve the prospects of winning. These actions are inefficient as they increase risk taking without increasing the average effort supplied. A major problem with tournaments is that individuals are rewarded based on how well they do relative to others.
Co-workers might become reluctant to help out others and might even sabotage others' effort instead of increasing their own effort LazearRob and Zemsky This is supported empirically by Drago and Garvey Why then are tournaments so popular?
Firstly, because—especially given compression rating problems—it is difficult to determine absolutely differences in worker performance. Tournaments merely require rank order evaluation. Secondly, it reduces the danger of rent-seekingbecause bonuses paid to favourite workers are tied to increased responsibilities in new jobs, and supervisors will suffer if they do not promote the most qualified person. Thirdly, where prize structures are relatively fixed, it reduces the possibility of the firm reneging on paying wages.
As Carmichael notes, a prize structure represents a degree of commitment, both to absolute and to relative wage levels. Lastly when the measurement of workers' productivity is difficult, e.What is the Scope of the Agent Principal Relationship?
Tournaments also promote risk seeking behavior. In essence, the compensation scheme becomes more like a call option on performance which increases in value with increased volatility cf. If you are one of ten players competing for the asymmetrically large top prize, you may benefit from reducing the expected value of your overall performance to the firm in order to increase your chance that you have an outstanding performance and win the prize.
In moderation this can offset the greater risk aversion of agents vs principals because their social capital is concentrated in their employer while in the case of public companies the principal typically owns his stake as part of a diversified portfolio. Successful innovation is particularly dependent on employees' willingness to take risks. In cases with extreme incentive intensity, this sort of behavior can create catastrophic organizational failure.
If the principal owns the firm as part of a diversified portfolio this may be a price worth paying for the greater chance of success through innovation elsewhere in the portfolio. If however the risks taken are systematic and cannot be diversified e. Deferred compensation[ edit ] Tournaments represent one way of implementing the general principle of "deferred compensation", which is essentially an agreement between worker and firm to commit to each other. Under schemes of deferred compensation, workers are overpaid when old, at the cost of being underpaid when young.
Salop and Salop argue that this derives from the need to attract workers more likely to stay at the firm for longer periods, since turnover is costly. Alternatively, delays in evaluating the performance of workers may lead to compensation being weighted to later periods, when better and poorer workers have to a greater extent been distinguished.
Workers may even prefer to have wages increasing over time, perhaps as a method of forced saving, or as an indicator of personal development.
For example Akerlof and Katz Overall, the evidence suggests the use of deferred compensation e. Other applications[ edit ] The "principal—agent problem" has also been discussed in the context of energy consumption by Jaffe and Stavins in They were attempting to catalog market and non-market barriers to energy efficiency adoption.
In efficiency terms, a market failure arises when a technology which is both cost-effective and saves energy is not implemented. Jaffe and Stavins describe the common case of the landlord-tenant problem with energy issues as a principal—agent problem. Is the agent the landlord and the principal the tenant, because the landlord is "hired" by the tenant through the payment of rent?
As Murtishaw and Sathaye, point out, "In the residential sector, the conceptual definition of principal and agent must be stretched beyond a strictly literal definition.
In this case, there is also little incentive for the tenant to make a capital efficiency investment with a usual payback time of several years, and which in the end will revert to the landlord as property.
Since energy consumption is determined both by technology and by behavior, an opposite principal agent problem arises when the energy bills are paid by the landlord, leaving the tenant with no incentive to moderate her energy use. This is often the case for leased office space, for example.
The energy efficiency principal agent problem applies in many cases to rented buildings and apartments, but arises in other circumstances, most often involving relatively high up-front costs for energy-efficient technology.
