The purpose of this article is to present solutions in the area of remuneration, aimed at stimulating innovation on the part of employees, as well as assess the effectiveness of those solutions. The basis for this discussion is the applied practices of eighty–three listed companies that were encompassed by an Institute of Labor and Social Studies' research, where special attention was devoted to companies with strategies clearly oriented at achieving a high level of innovation (30% of the test sample). They are shown against a backdrop of average results for the sample as well as confronted with practices used by companies with various levels of innovation - regardless of applied business strategy. The final section of this article presents suggestions for solutions that may give remuneration systems a pro-innovation character.
