Management By Objectives (MBO) is a performance appraisal and motivation system. Managers identify specific results that an employee is expected to achieve in a given amount of time. Usually, the manager consults with the employee to set the performance goals and to create the action steps that will be necessary to achieve the goals.

Organizational Behavior Modification (OBM) is a process of establishing reinforcement contingencies for desired work behaviors. Bonus and incentive plans are often part of an OBM system.

I-O psychologists sometimes provide advice on the design of compensation systems. The work being done, the type of employees, the nature of the environment all influence they type of compensation that would be best for an organization. Similarly, I-O psychologists help employers identify the criteria necessary to make fair and accurate decisions about raises, promotions, and other rewards.
