Hi all,

I am unsure if this is the correct thread to post this in so bear with me if I made a mistake. My question is, I've been tasked to create a name of a new scheme that my company is intending to implement. Essentially, the scheme is just to dangle a certain monetary amount to interested people to take up a specified job. The scheme's name is something along the lines of Subject __ Scheme where the blank is the word which I have been wrecking my brains over for the past few hours. It has to be of a positive meaning, yet it cannot be too obvious that we are solely using money as an incentive. Words like privlege/award/bonus/specialization/grant have been rejected. Also the word cannot convey the meaning that the applicants are privlege in a sense as we already have a seperate scheme for people who meet certain criteria.

I know this request sounds kind of weird but I'll gladly accept any contribution.
I thank you for your time.

Regards,
Drendal.

Hi all,

I thank you for your replies and suggestions. I have tried the word incentive before and apparently the higher ups think it makes the carrot-on-a-stick idea too obvious. lol. They'd like something along the lines of engagement but for the life of me and the thesaurus, I can't find a suitable word.. :-(

If "Incentive" is out, here are some other ideas:

Subject Alliance Scheme
Subject Affinity Scheme
Subject Concord Scheme
Subject Collaboration Scheme
Subject Covenant Scheme
Subject Impetus Scheme
Subject Motivation Scheme
