''A bonus given: noise, effort and efficiency in a flat hierarchy''
( 2019, Vol. 39 No.4 )
 
 
We show that bonuses are efficient in terms of effort exertion and greater in noisier environments. This could explain the prevalence of bonuses in the financial sector, which is characterised by flat hierarchies and inherently noisy environments. Policies to restrict bonuses should be implemented cautiously since they may imply undesirable efficiency effects.
