07/10/2009

Professor Joel Nicholson and Assistant Professor Lihua Wang of the International Business department have co-authored an article in the journal Chinese Management Studies.

The article, titled "Pay Systems in Chinese State-Owned Enterprises: A Review" looks at the design of compensation systems in state-owned enterprises in China under the current market-oriented economy.

The paper provides a comprehensive review and critique of what is known about pay systems in Chinese state-owned enterprises and identifies the gaps in the literature. The authors provide suggestions on three important sets of questions for future research:

  1. Why do some firms pay their employees more than other firms?
  2. Why do we observe different types of internal pay structures among firms? What are the consequences of these different structures?
  3. Why is the link between pay and performance weak in some firms but strong in others? Under what conditions pay-for-performance enhances the firm performance?
