 Are Non-Compensatory Employee Rewards as Efficient in Fostering Motivation as CashIncentives?
1.0 Introduction
In the contemporary business environment, employees and managers alike are faced withnumerous pressures to perform to corporate expectations. These pressures are often created byhighly competitive business environments, environments which impose continuous change andinternal redesign or even progressing job responsibilities which create stressful workingconditions. (Amongst a variety of other pressures). In this high-paced business world, it isparamount to avoid high turnover costs as well as maintaining a highly unmotivated workforcewho are not recognized for their positive organisational accomplishments.There are a wide variety of different non-compensatory programmes or options availablefor modern business leaders to utilise as a means to reward positive performance, efficiency andoverall job-related productivity. Some of these rewards come in the form of flexible schedulingoptions, premium gifts elicited by company management, or even increased job-relatedautonomy to create perceptions of trust in the employee and their competency to carry out their job role without managerial intervention or continuous assessment.All of the aforementioned non-compensatory rewards likely have their merits in creatinga more motivated workforce, however can non-cash incentives, when utilized as an alternative tocash incentives, foster long-term motivation in employees? Does today’s business employeetruly value the more psychological elements of workplace incentives, such as increasedautonomy, or are cash-based incentives the most appropriate reward methodology for buildinglong-term organisational commitment and job satisfaction? This proposed research study intendsto answer the following three specific research questions:
Pure Quality
To what degree do non-cash incentives increase motivation in today’s active labor force?
To what degree to cash incentives foster motivation within the organisational staff?
Do any noticeable trends exist in employee behaviours and attitudes which directlyimpact whether cash or non-cash incentives should be used to boost motivation?This proposed study is intended to take an exploratory approach to research, contributing tothe wide body of literature available on business and motivational theory. There does not appearto be a definitive model or specific series of incentive programmes which can guaranteecontinuous, positive motivation amongst staff members, thus this proposed research studymaintains the potential to create a potential best practice model for generating cash versus non-cash performance incentives in order to assist today’s business leaders in developing a morerewarding business environment in which employees are driven to succeed above and beyondcorporate expectations.Undertaking a primary research study of this magnitude maintains one specific difficultyrelated to gathering the research data and in eliciting various corporate/business approvals toconduct a qualitative and quantitative research study targeted at staff members. Achieving ahigh level of respondent participation will require an active scan of the contemporary businessenvironment to determine how best to utilise the proposed study’s research instruments forgathering employee opinion on motivation and overall job satisfaction through incentiveprogrammes. Further, achieving management approvals for the distribution of the researchinstruments will require active consultation with various business leaders to ensure minimaldisruption to regular business activities. Hence, the difficulty to this study lies in the researcher’stangible ability to guarantee an adequate response ratio to the study.
