What are the two big trends of 2021? The Great Resignation is happening and quota attainment is at new lows. We saw this as a clear message- the way we all approach sales compensation plans needs to change! Our 3rd annual sales comp and benchmarking report gives tips on smarter quota setting, paying on activities, and focused reporting, which will help you move the comp planning process forward faster. (And hopefully, give everyone time to disconnect over the holidays and recharge!)

Who have the same comp planning conversations every year:

Groundhog Day, $12.99

In any case, the moody yet hopeful tone of 30 will help them get through this crunch.

Bonus: membership comes with access to the monthly healing circle, which might be needed after the next board meeting.
