The purpose of this research is to study the implementation of Performance-Related-Pay (PRP) among Freshly Graduated Quantity Surveyors in Sabah. lt is about the positive effects a PRP scheme can bring into organizations, the disability of firms to counterbalance the negativity of implementation, incorrect implementation, as well as methods to be done in improving the implementation of PRP scheme. This research takes place in Sabah. lt is a quantitative research where it used
questionnaires to analyse the data collection. There are 3 main objectives of this research which are the effects, challenges and methods on improving the PRP scheme implementation. Based on the literature review, there are many positive effects that a PRP scheme is able to bring into organisation. However, it also
portrayed that there are various challenges in implementing it. As a result, there is a need to assess the methods and ways to improve the implementation of PRP scheme in construction industry, specifically in Sabah. From the findings, it turned out that the number of freshly graduated quantity surveyors who were unaware of this scheme was higher. This portrayed the low awareness level among them. Besides, the results proved that more of them who work in private sectors have better awareness than those working in public sectors. A total of 81 questionnaires have been distributed with 47 numbers returned, resulting in a 58% of response. The most agreed effect was the importance of firms to identify its goals & objectives before implementing. The least was punishment and value of financial incentives. As for challenges, the highest vote was free - riding of workers and the lowest would be expensive implementation. Education and knowledge were
the most voted improvement methods while compulsion being the least.
