German to English translations [PRO] Bus/Financial - Human Resources / Reward schemes (sales staff)
German term or phrase:lineare Provision
I've just had my original question removed beacuse it "contained more than one term" - so look out for identical questions about "degressive Provision" and "progressive Provision" too! Good job I've got plenty of time to waste!
Anyway - I'm not sure if "linear commission" is the correct terminology when talking about employee reward schemes in English - I have found a few references, but I'd like to know if there are other, more common terms. The context is a Human Resources textbook. The definition is in teh following section:
"Bei der linearen Provision ist der Provisionssatz über alle Umsatzniveaus konstant....bei progressiven Provisionsverläufen steigt der Provisionssatz mit zunehmendem Umsatz .....bei degressiver Provision sinkt der Provisionssatz mit zunehmendem Umsatz".
You are very welcome, my friend! Frankly, this was a walk in the park. No offence! I know it wasn't for you. This was my education talking. I guess, the money I paid for the MBA in marketing was not a waste after all! Thanks for confirming that to me. :-)
