because of the addition of the bonus. The goal measures used to compensate Ramon are as follows:

 20-38 Incentive Pay in the Hotel Industry Incentive Pay in The Hotel Industry Ramon Martinez is the general manager of Classic Inn, a local mid-priced hotel with 100 service to the hotel’s guests, maintaining an 80 percent occupancy rate, improving the average rate received per room to \$88 from the current \$85, and achieving a savings of 5 percent on all hotel costs. The hotel’s owner, a partnership of seven people who own several hotels in the region, want to structure Ramon’s future compensation to objectively reward him for achieving these goals. In the past, he has been paid an annual salary of \$72,000 with no incentive pay. The incentive plan the partners developed has each of the goals weighted as follows: Measure % of Total Occupancy rate (also reflects guest service quality) Operating within 95 percent of expense budget 25 Average room rate 35 Check total If Ramon achieves all of these goals, the partners determined that his performance should merit a bonus of \$23,000. The partners also agreed that his salary would be reduced to \$60,000 Occupancy goal: 29,200 room-nights = 80 percent occupancy rate x100 rooms x 365 days Compensation: 40 percent weight x \$23,000 target reward = \$9,200 \$9,200/29,200 = \$0.31 5 per room-night Expense goal: 5 percent savings Compensation: 25 percent weight x \$23,000 target reward = \$5,750 \$5,750/5 = \$1 ,150 for each percentage point saved Room rate goal: \$3 rate increase Compensation: 35 percent weight x \$23,000 target reward = \$8,050 \$8,050/300 = \$26.83 per each cent increase Ramon’s new compensation plan will thus pay him a \$60,000 salary plus 31 .5 cents per room-night sold plus \$1,1 50 for each percentage point saved in the expense budget plus \$26.83 per each cent increase in average room rate. Required 1 . Based on this plan, what will Ramon’s total compensation be if his performance results are a. 30,000 room-nights, 5 percent saved, \$3.00 rate increase? b. 25,000 room-nights, 3 percent saved, \$1 .1 5 rate increase? c. 28,000 room-nights, 0 saved, \$1 .00 rate increase? 2. Comment on the expected effectiveness of this plan.

2. Comment on the expected effectiveness of this plan.

 Review textbook pages 898 through 902 for guidance. Also, see comments at right for additional guidance —-> Additional Guidance: The problem is based on the material in the textbook found in Chapter 20, pages 894 to 902. There is no direct example to fit this exact problem narrative. Rather, you are to synthesize the material and compile the information using the material presented. Part 1 Solution: To help get you started, let’s look at Part a. We are given a total base salary of \$60,000. So, we know that is going to be included in the “total compensation”. Category–> Base Pay Occupancy Goal Expense Goal Room Rate Goal Total Pay Only 1 of 3 have Then, we are given 3 independent bonus variables to calculate possible bonus: (Given) \$ Rate Units feedback: a. 30,000 room-nights, 5 percent saved, \$3.00 rate increase? \$0.00 \$60,000.00 b. 25,000 room-nights, 3 percent saved, \$1.1 5 rate increase? 1- 31 .5 cents per room-night sold 2- plus \$1,1 50 for each percentage point saved in the expense budget (Rate * Units) Sum of all \$ in row 3- plus \$26.83 per each cent increase in average room rate. Note: Enter data in these colored fields. Note: Excel will compute. You will compute the Bonus using those 3 elements for each part (a, b & c). For Part a, you are told that: a. 30,000 room-nights, 5 percent saved, \$3.00 rate increase. [Enter comments here] So, you will add the \$60,000 to the amount of bonus earned for all 3 categories of bonus, based on those results for a, b & c. Therefore, for Part a, the “room-night bonus”, the “percentage point” bonus & the “each cent increase” bonuses will all be added to the \$60,000. Specifically, for Part a, the solution would be =: \$60,000 + (31.5 cents bonus for every room-night sold). + (\$1,150 for each % point saved) + (\$26.83 for every CENT increase). Repeat that process for parts b & c.
