Why individual bonuses don’t work for product teams?

Teamwork

Individual vs team bonus

How then to recognize and reward the individual?

  • the same reward for everyone, such as a dinner, a trip or even a cash prize. This type of bonus helps reinforce the sense of team.
  • some reward based on multiples of salary. In this case, we will already be making some kind of individual reward, given that the salary of people in a product development team is not the same.
