In the Human Resources’ world, we talk quite a bit about getting pay right without overpaying employees. Sometimes a premium paycheck is warranted for a star employee, or an employee with rare skills. In general, the best way to know what to pay an employee is to adjust their pay based both on what’s going on in the market and also how well the employee is performing.
This NFL analysis takes a similar approach, comparing on-field performance over the last three seasons with players’ contracted salaries, to develop a list of the most overpaid underperformers.
Take a look at the list of the NFL’s most overpaid players and let us know what you think. Do you have overpaid, underperformers in your organization?
