Feed your focus
Amsterdam, 3 september 2018 Employees who receive recognition for their work accomplishments tend to have increased morale and positive workplace attitudes. Employee recognition is an incentive employers utilize to offer feedback and encouragement to employees. Recognition rewards can include award ceremonies and public announcements, her choice for the next assignment, and asking him to be a mentor to others. And don’t underestimate the power of a simple, sincere thank-you for a job well done. Workplace recognition rewards occur frequently such as at the end of the day, week or at the conclusion of the sales month.
Many of us have first-hand experience with incentive schemes sending companies off a tangent, or even backfiring on their people’s productivity. It’s no surprise because most managers use rewards incorrectly.
Do rewards motivate people? Absolutely. They motivate people to get the rewards.

Rewarding people based on just one measurement usually does not improve the organization’s performance. But is it wrong to incentivize people? Well, not if you first focus on intrinsic motivation, and then on extrinsic motivation. With extrinsic motivation, we refer to behavior driven by external rewards (given by others), such as money, grades, and praise. With intrinsic motivation, we refer to behavior triggered from within a person. In other words, the person is rewarding herself.
