Is the best way to compensate their sales people?

Case Study Overview

In this Deloitte Human Capital style case, your client is an insurance company that is looking into their compensation package for their sales people and have come to you for advice. It’s your job to dig into profitability, get to know the client and their operations and make a solid recommendation for compensation.

Allow yourself to come up with a structure that blends your business experience with the framework so you have a solution unique to this case.

This case has no math diagrams. The qualitative difficulty is 1 out of 4 and is a good example of case interview cases you could expect to see this case in a Deloitte first round interview.
