The purpose of this paper is to examine the relation between individual performance and remuneration.


The paper critically examines the importance of payment systems as a means of directly controlling employee behavior.


Abolishing performance ratings does not mean denying the importance of performance as the essential reference value. Instead, it is precisely the concept of ongoing dialogue through which the performance aspect comes to the fore.


The paper examines dialogue as basis for performance-based payment.
