MANAGEMENT AND REWARD
at Standard Chartered Bank
Half-day course that I have taught to executive M.B.A. students at Nanyang Business School, Singapore
Business school case (unpublished) I wrote based on experience working in talent management at Standard Chartered
Topic: At Standard Chartered Bank, a multinational whose roots date back to the 1850s, everything is tied to performance. Should managers be appraised and rewarded only for their individual and their groups’ financial results, or should managers be evaluated and compensated for the work they do as managers, too? The case requires the class to evaluate the bank’s performance and culture and debate the case from three perspectives: that of HR, that of Finance, and that of the Singapore government’s investment company, Temasek Holdings.
