Collective Sorting Theory: How Team Pay for Performance Influences Attraction and Retention Processes in Teams 


Pay for Performance (PFP) in teams, or systems where team members receive compensation based on their individual or their team's performance, influence team processes and performance. Such reward structures generate influence via incentive effects, which influence the motivation of individuals in that system, or sorting effects, which influence attraction and retention in that system. Because teams have become increasingly agile with flexible membership, investigating sorting effects has become theoretically and practically critical.  We draw together logic from social interdependence theory and economic sorting theory to develop collective sorting theory, a model of how team PFP systems influence sorting effects in agile work teams. Using this theory, we develop and test hypotheses about how individual-based and group-based incentives relate to different types of sorting in teams, and how these sorting effects influence team performance.
