Perks, global provider of innovative rewards and recognition solutions, takes a look at the top factors affecting employee motivation in its latest eBook, Moving Mountains: How Incentives Motivate Employees To Go The Extra Mile, which is now available in the Perks’ online Resource Library.

Employee engagement continues to be a significant workforce challenge. Today’s business environment contains multi-generational, multi-ethnic work populations, and overcoming obstacles often seem impossible. As unsettling as the low employee engagement levels seem, there are many reasons to be optimistic about an organization’s ability to improve employee motivation.

This eBook starts its journey by asking the question ‘what motivates my employees to come to work?’ Many believe that money is the main motivator, but in fact, it is only sixth on the list. The truth is that cash incentives alone do not improve employee engagement and retention rates. VP of Marketing, Deb Broderson, explains that ultimately, employees must motivate themselves, but that requires a basic success framework from their employers. Employers cannot just add an incentive or recognition program to the mix and expect change to happen.

“There are four overarching keys to engaging employees, and the design of any incentive based program must include all these aspects. What are they? Simple enough: pay a fair wage, create an environment of trust, make sure your goals are clear and build strong relationships.”
