Conversation starters: Comments from our readers

"For a bonus system to work, the measurable outcomes should not be known by the employee so that, theoretically anyway, they would be expected to apply maximum effort and standards throughout their work. The basis being, it is difficult to game a system if you don't know what to game. Of course the need for transparency renders that a non-starter!"

"Perhaps banks should think about letting out office space to their staff rather than simply giving it to them 'for free'? This would encourage optimal space use, better working from home etc. if you priced it right you could ensure only the most productive employees could afford to come in to network with management. And you could claw back that ever pesky headcount cost."
