ABSTRACT
The article reveals that expanding the range of its bonus scheme has helped tobacco firm Gallaher to manage its talent more effectively. Gallaher opened up the scheme so that individual staff could receive anything from no bonus to 45 per cent of their salary in bonuses. According to Julia Watts, group compensation and benefits manager, managers were told to have the courage to give zero if that's what they thought was appropriate at the time.
