(1999, p. 658) concluded that: “tangible rewards tend to have a substantially negative effect on intrinsic motivation (…) Even when tangible rewards are offered as indicators of good performance, they typically decrease intrinsic motivation for interesting activities.” Rewards have even been found to make people less creative and worse at problem solving Word of caution

The Social psychology behind Rewards:

The Social psychology behind Rewards Like it or not, we're wired to bond, and most of us experience the workplace first as a social setting. This is what makes recognition so powerful: celebrating stories about accomplishments with co-workers and managers makes people feel more appreciated. dr.sarma 8

The categories- psychology behind reward:

The categories- psychology behind reward The Collector:  It's human nature to gather things and status. Plaques with years of service appeal to the desire for status. Other types of incentive programs tap into this drive as well, motivating people through their desire to acquire more possessions. The Killer:  People are biologically motivated to defend what is theirs. The winner of last year's "Top in Sales" title isn't going to let it go without a fight. Seed 1 player never easily let goes; And employees engaged by strong recognition programs will work hard to protect their company against competitive threats. dr.sarma 9

It began when a company engineer burst into his manager's office with the answer to a problem they'd been struggling with for weeks. The manager searched his office for a way to mark this accomplishment, but all he came up with was a leftover banana from lunch. Still, he handed over the banana and said "Well done! Congratulations !" dr.sarma 15

AT&T Employee Recognition :

Producers Assistance Safety Program :

Producers Assistance Safety Program Producers Assistance Corporation provides contract personnel to the oil and gas industry, an area where employee safety is critical. To refresh their safety program, they chose reloadable gift cards as an incentive. Here's how it works: when an employee takes an action, like attending a safety meeting, points are loaded onto their card. The lure of point collecting (and spending) has focused employees back on doing the right thing? to be safe. After a 6-month trial, participation had more than doubled and there was a significant decline in the incident rate.  dr.sarma 18

Pharmaceutical Merger Reward Program :

Pharmaceutical Merger Reward Program During the merger of two pharmaceutical giants, a task force was charged with making the transition a smooth one. Members worked nonstop over six months, planning how to blend operations of the two companies. The team was rewarded for its sacrifices with gift cards that were, literally, the gift of time. The personalized cards were hand-delivered with a letter from the project leader, and gave recipients their choice of services: housecleaning, lawn care, carpet cleaning, pest control, and more.  dr.sarma 19
