Thefirst question a manager should always ask is, ‘Why are you looking to leaveyour current position?' Many goodsales people are motivated to leave because their current compensation plan isnot adequate, the products are not top notch, or they may want to switch to adifferent industry.
Thiscan be handled either way. First, I believe that your sales people do need acell phone. My suggestion is to have the company issue the cell phone (bettercost control) and reimburse the employee for all business related calls. Cellphone would be the property of the company and would be required to be turned inat termination.
Monthlyexpense reports are the way to go (with receipts required). This way costs canbe controlled better and you will only reimburse legitimate business expenses.You may want to set the policy that receipts are required for expenses over $25(i.e. business lunches) only.
