Bus/Financial - Human Resources / Reward schemes (sales staff)
German term or phrase: degressive Provision
And the last one:

I'm not sure if "degressive 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 the 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".
