Zions Bancorporation

    Coming together for compliance and compensation

    Ensuring multiple departments are aligned to meet federal regulations can be a difficult task for any organization. To meet the changing requirements placed by government while consolidating its teams, Zions Bancorporation transformed its internal approach for its incentive compensation processes and reporting.

    Get the full story.

    The Challenge

    After the financial crisis of 2008, Zions Bancorporation needed a flexible, efficient system that was able to centralize how they track incentive payments and provide approvals for payments in order to adhere to new, and ever-changing, federal regulations.

    The Transformation

    In a heavily regulated industry, staying compliant is essential. Over the last decade, Varicent has helped Zions Bancorporation manage their complex incentive compensation plans while maintaining compliance.


    “Despite having constrained resources, Varicent has allowed us to communicate with different teams and business partners effectively. It has also allowed us to meet the demands of regulations with the flexibility to change our reporting styles based on new requirements.”
