The bonus increases both sales and number of customers dealt with by 3 percent. Each dollar spent on the bonus generates $3.80 in sales, and $2.10 in profit. Wages increase by 2.2 percent while inequality rises only moderately. The analysis suggests effort complementarities to be important, and the effectiveness of peer pressure in overcoming free-riding to be limited. After rolling out the bonus treatment, and control shops' performance converge, suggesting long-term stability of the treatment effect.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Heinz, Matthias</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Team Incentives and Performance : Evidence from a Retail Chain</dcterms:title> <dcterms:issued>2017</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Zubanov, Nikolay</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Friebel, Guido</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Zubanov, Nikolay</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2017-03-22T14:31:56Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Heinz, Matthias</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Krueger, Miriam</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
