Some companies reward employees for exceptional work by giving them extra money. Is this a good way of encouraging employees to work hard?
Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.
Write at least 250 words.
It is undeniable fact that motivation often helps to encourage people and it has been in vogue recently at a workplace, which is applied by employers to uplift the performance of employees. Therefore, each organisation uses diverse methods to encourage workers like incentives, money. However, only money cannot be the best way all the time for everyone.
On one hand, employees who have financial goals will be reinforced easily by money. The first and foremost case is that money is acceptable for many workers. One good illustration is that everyone works to earn the livelihood. Consequently, extra money motivates people to work extra. Make one more case that money is a simple way to reward people. It is obvious that workers would compete to raise the productivity or standards. Hence, company’s ranking and revenue will improve.
On the other hand, some people hold the opinion that money does not always work. To begin with, if employees are highly paid then money may not be sufficient. Thus, employees will prefer other benefits. For instance, an award ceremony or dinner, club membership, travel ticket, car and so on. Moreover, money may set employees against each other, leading to conflict in the office. Therefore, it is difficult to determine standard or basis for the decision to reward an employee.
To sum up, I would like to say there are many other ways to motivate people because amount may not bear relation to what the employee does. Companies should maintain certain rules for employee reinforcement.
