QuestionCreating a bonus plan based on objective programmer measurements Pin
Matt Maynard13-Aug-14 5:12
professionalMatt Maynard13-Aug-14 5:12 
I've recently been promoted to Director of IT, and have the responsibility of creating a bonus plan for my employees. The company owner has laid out some criteria:
* Bonuses are only paid out in months when the company is profitable
* Bonuses should be based on an objective measurement and not on subjective perceptions
* The measurement should be based on the employee's individual performance
But I'm stuck because I can't quite figure out the objectives by which to measure my (so far) sole employee.

I don't want to base it on the number of bugs fixed, because that means the bonus will decline as the products (two websites) improve, and it will also decline if bugs go undiscovered (and therefore, unfixed).

I don't want to base it on the number of paying subscribers because this particular employee's work is mostly unrelated, or only peripherally related, to the subscriber count.

Basing it on the number of programming tasks completed is problematic because that can be subjective, dependent on how one defines "complete". The owner doesn't like subjective.

How do you measure programmer performance? What criteria do you use in your work to determine bonuses?
