Sales Compensation Survey Finds Sales is Going from Strength to Strength

Increase revenue

A recent report from the Alexander Group’s Sales Compensation practice found that sales departments increased sales volume 5% in 2017.

This was equal to the projected growth of 5% estimated at the end of December 2016 for 2017 performance. Meanwhile, sales leaders expect sales revenue to grow 6% this year. 2% was the median increase in incentive payments to sales personnel in 2017, matching the planned 2% increase anticipated at the beginning of the year. 2% is the projected increase in incentive payments for 2018.

More than 135 sales departments participated in the 16th annual 2018 Sales Compensation Trends Survey©. Participants provided data in November and December 2017 on what occurred in 2017 and what they plan for 2018.
