1. The performance of an experimental group in the past influences the performance under any group incentive performances in the present in terms of effort level.
2. Tournament-based group incentives are very effective
3. Monitoring works but is costly
In a team setting, team members value effort from other team members differently than their own, and team incentives are more cost-efficient, suggesting a social effect from working in a team.
If employees are outcome-linked, the optimal incentive scheme for individuals is individual reward and in group, it is group punishment. When people within a group have the opportunity to help one another, optimal group incentives are positive. Also, when people in a group can share information, individual and group incentives play complementary roles to each other.
