Sometimes, simply receiving a paycheck is not enough of an incentive to keep
employees dedicated and focused. Managers must think of new ways to hold an
employee's attention and interest on a project, or the company as a whole. Many
companies employ motivational tactics and rewards systems, both of which have
advantages and disadvantages.

Companies use both positive reinforcement and negative reinforcement to
motivate employees. Many managers believe that using positive motivation
techniques encourages employees to produce more and better quality work. For
example, some companies select an employee as "Employee of the Week." This
technique praises the winning employee, while positively encouraging other
employees to keep trying to do well. Other managers believe negative
reinforcement motivates employees to stop bad behavior. For example, a company
may issue a written-warning system, or threaten employees with termination to get
them to perform a certain way.

Companies reward their employees with both tangible goods, as well as praise. For
example, a sales department may offer a monthly bonus to the highest earner. Not
all tangible rewards come in the form of money. Some companies host free
lunches, or give away company gear to good workers. Many managers choose to
reward their best employees by simply praising them for a job well done, or by
recognizing the hard work they put in to a project.

praise, can make employees happier. Happier employees often perform better at

Using negative enforcement as a form of motivation could cause employees to
become dissatisfied with their jobs. Unhappy workers typically produce less
quality work, become sluggish or fail entirely to meet deadlines . Applying too
much motivation or offering too many rewards can also have a negative effect.
Employees can become over-confident. They may feel that they are the bosses'
favorite workers, even if they start to slack off on their projects or test the limits of
their working relationship with their supervisors.
