What's the best bonus/commission structure you've seen and why?

HR Generalist & HRBP input needed! I’ve always been interested in HR Generalist roles as I like a variety in a role. I have been a recruitment specialist and a compensation & benefits specialist and thoroughly enjoy the different sectors. The only thing that gives me pause is the employee relations piece as I don’t think I’d be good at it. Can any generalists or business partners advise if they found that part of the role challenging when first starting?
