9. Introduction
Rewards is one of the important elements to motiate emplo!ees for contri"utin# their "est effort to
#enerate innoation ideas that lead to "etter "usiness functionalit! and further improise compan! performance
"oth financial and non$financiall!. Accordin# to %ewhurst et al.&2'1'(, there are other means to reward
emplo!ees that do not )ust focus on financial compensation. Some of these include the praised that emplo!ees
are a"le to ac*uire from their mana#ers, the opportunit! to take on important pro)ects or tasks, and een
leadership attention. Much research on leader power hae found that superisor reward power would "e
positiel! associated with emplo!ee task performance, productiit!, satisfaction, turnoer, and or#anizational
citizenship "ehaiors& Simon,1+,-. Martin / 0unt, 1+1'. 2ahan#ir,2''-(.
Emplo!ee will #ie their ma3imum when the! hae a feelin# or trust that their efforts will "e rewarded
"! the mana#ement. 4here are man! factors that affect emplo!ee performance like workin# conditions, worker
and emplo!er relationship, trainin# and deelopment opportunities, )o" securit!, and compan!5s oerall policies
and procedures for rewardin# emplo!ees, etc. Amon# all those factors which affect emplo!ee performance,
motiation that comes with rewards is of utmost importance. Motiation is an accumulation of different
processes which influence and direct our "ehaior to achiee some specific #oal &6aron, 1+13(.Rewards can "e
e3trinsic or intrinsic, e3trinsic rewards are tan#i"le rewards and these rewards are e3ternal to the )o" or task
performed "! the emplo!ee. E3ternal rewards can "e in terms of salar!7 pa!, incenties, "onuses, promotions,
)o" securit!, etc. 8ntrinsic rewards are intan#i"le rewards or ps!cholo#ical rewards like appreciation, meetin# the
new challen#es, positie and carin# attitude from emplo!er, and )o" rotation after attainin# the #oal. Accordin#
to 9uthans &2'''(, there are two "asic t!pes of rewards, financial and non$financial and "oth can "e utilized
positiel! to enhance performance "ehaiors of emplo!ees. :inancial rewards means pa!$for$performance such
as performance "onus, )o" promotion, commission, tips, #ratuities and #ifts etc. ;on financial rewards are non
monetar!7non cash and it is a social reco#nition such as acknowled#ement, certificate, and #enuine appreciation
etc. 4he non financial rewards is also called materials award &;eckermann and Kosfeld, 2''1(.
%esired performance can onl! "e achieed efficientl! and effectiel!, if emplo!ee #ets a sense of
mutual #ain of or#anization as well as of himself, with the attainment of that defined tar#et or #oal. An
or#anization must carefull! set the rewards s!stem to ealuate the emplo!ee5s performance at all leels and them
rewardin# them whether isi"le pa! for performance of inisi"le satisfaction. 4he concept of performance
mana#ement has #ien a rewards s!stem which contains. needs and #oals ali#nment "etween or#anization and
emplo!ees, rewardin# emplo!ee "oth e3trinsicall! and intrinsicall!. 4he s!stem also su##ests where trainin# and
deelopment is needed "! the emplo!ee in order to complete the defined #oals. 4his trainin# or deelopment

e3ceeds a su"sistence leel, intrinsic factors are stron#er motiators, and staff motiation re*uires intrinsic
rewards such as satisfaction at doin# a #ood )o" and a sense of doin# somethin# worthwhile.
4here is mi3 findin# in the literature to determine which t!pe of reward is more effectie to increase emplo!ees5
performance. Accordin# to =err! et al &2''-( financial rewards is not the most motiatin# factor and financial
results hae a de$motiatin# effect amon# emplo!ee &Sriastaa, 2''1(. Seeral studies hae found that amon#
emplo!ee sure!ed, mone! was not the most important motiator, and in some instances mana#ers hae found
mone! to hae a demotiatin# or ne#atie effect on emplo!ees &>niersit! of 4e3as, undated(. ?n the other
hand, R!an &undated( indicated that non monetar! t!pes of rewards can "e er! meanin#ful to emplo!ees and
er! motiatin# for performance improement. Accordin# to him, creatie use of personalized non $monetar!
rewards reinforces positie "ehaiours and improes emplo!ee retention and performance. 4hese t!pes of
reco#nition can "e ine3pensie to #ie, "ut priceless to receie.
35. Scope And !"ecti#es f The Study
4his research is limited to emplo!ees of the commercial "ank in 6an#ladesh. 4his is due to time

&Ro"erts, 2''3(. 6eer et al, &1+1B( stron#l! asserts in their research of chan#in# work enironment the realit!

ultimatel! results in improed performance of or#anizations. 4he entire success of an or#anization is "ased on
how an or#anization keeps its emplo!ees motiated and in what wa! the! ealuate the performance of
emplo!ees for )o" compensation. Accordin# to 6a"akus et al. &2''3(, the perceptions that emplo!ees hae with
re#ards to their reward climate influences their attitude towards their emplo!ees. 8n addition, the commitment of
mana#ers towards their or#anization is also shown "! how the mana#er rewards his7her emplo!ees. Coulder
&1+-'( mentions the norm of reciprocit!, which focuses on the a"ilit! of or#anization to accommodate the needs
of their emplo!ees, and reward them for their effort. 8n e3chan#e for the rewards proided to them, emplo!ees

there is a need for the emplo!er to reall! make an effort in showin# the emplo!ee that his7her well"ein# is of
concern to the or#anization and the mana#ement and that the contri"ution of the emplo!ee towards the
or#anization is hi#hl! alued. 4his idea is further reiterated "! 6uchanan &1+,B( who adds that the reco#nition
of contri"utions towards the or#anization has a positie relationship towards increasin# the commitment of the
emplo!ee towards the or#anization and its o")ecties.
Accordin# to Coodwin / Cremler &1++-(, the "ankin# industr! is in need of emplo!ees that are "oth
satisfied and motiated, for without them, customer satisfaction leel would also "e affected. 4his idea is also
supported "! Adelman et al. &1++B( who maintains that interpersonal relationships esta"lished "etween "ank
personnel and the customers are a "i# driin# force "ehind ensurin# that a customer is satisfied or dissatisfied.
Re!nolds / 6eatt! &1+++( add that the relationship esta"lished "etween the emplo!ees and the customers ma!
lead to an increase in alues perception with re#ards to the "ank5s products and serices. Dhen a hi#h perception

*III+ Summary And Conclusion
;ow a da! human resource is considered to "e the most important resource of an or#anization to
remain competitie in the "usiness world. Ac*uirin# the ri#ht workforce and then retainin# that force is one of
the challen#es to the or#anization. 4he result from this stud! e3amined and determined the relationship "etween
rewards and emplo!ees5 performance and also determined the relationship "etween intrinsic and e3trinsic
rewards. 6ased on a result from =earson Horrelation Anal!sis, it showed that there was a positie relationship
"etween rewards and emplo!ees5 performance and also showed a hi#hl! positie si#nificance in the relationship
"etween intrinsic and e3trinsic rewards.
4he results of correlation matri3 hae supported the h!pothesis that there e3ist a positie relationship
amon# e3trinsic rewards, intrinsic rewards and emplo!ees5 performance. 4he correlation matri3 also stron#l!
supported the h!pothesis "etween e3trinsic rewards and intrinsic rewards. 4here are two factors included in the
e3trinsic rewards such as "asic pa! and performance "onus. 6asic pa! is a hi#hl! si#nificant factor which affects
emplo!ee performance than performance "onus. 6oth are positie si#nificant factors which affect emplo!ees5
performance. 4here are four factors included in the intrinsic rewards such as reco#nition, learnin# opportunit!,
challen#in# work, career adancement. Amon# all of the four factors challen#in# work is a hi#hl! si#nificant
factor which affects emplo!ees5 performance.
6ased on result of the stud!, it is showed that onl! e3trinsic or intrinsic rewards are not sufficient to motiate
emplo!ee to perform work hi#hl!. 8f commercial "ank of 6an#ladesh keep "oth t!pes of rewards for the
emplo!ees than it will increase their emplo!ees5 performance. 6ecause there stron# correlation "etween intrinsic
and e3trinsic rewards.
