Compensation Strategies

Motivation

This is a photo of a man driving a busWhile fair pay for work is important to employee satisfaction, it is not everything. Pay will become more important when employees are short of money or when they feel they are being unfairly treated.

Money alone is not sufficient to motivate employees to do their best. Such things as pride in work, ability to help customers, and good social relationships in the workplace are important as well. Everyone is different when it comes to motivation, and employers can determine how best to motivate each employee by listening to them.

Information about motivating employees can be found in the Managing Diverse Workplace section of this toolkit.
