Gainsharing program ideas are generated by teams of eight to 12 people, plus one or two facilitators, who receive special training. The teams then meet regularly to brainstorm new, money-saving ideas, develop detailed proposals, then present them to senior management and union representatives for approval. Team members are rewarded for successful programs with one-time bonuses of up to $5,000, depending on the amount of money the program saves.
