The incentive theory of people motivation
There are a great deal of factors that can influence why a person makes one decision or another. When faced with the same dilemma, two people may make completely opposite decisions based on the reward or punishment available to them. While some psychologists and motivation experts speak of internal drives, the incentive theory of people motivation revolves around external factors driving actions. Employees motivation theories say that workers will be more focused on achieving goals when there’s a strong outside stimulus. Rewards are the basis of incentive theory, and it’s precisely what you can find with RUSMICE.
We have over 12 years of experience in building employee incentive solutions. From small-scale businesses to large international companies, we organize 500 corporate events a year. Many of these are directed towards company workers, in events specifically crafted to get them out of the everyday routine and motivate them to move forward. What is an incentive? In motivation theory, an incentive is a reward (or the promise of one) for achieving a particular goal.
What is an incentive?
In motivation theory, an incentive is a reward (or the promise of one) for achieving a particular goal. In the case of companies, incentives can offer a way to motivate workers for specific projects or throughout the quarter or year. Some reasons for incentives include an increase of productivity, retaining employees, thanking them for achieving goals, team building and rewarding high achievers.
Here are a few essential details about incentives:
- They help workers engage in specific behaviors that will ultimately improve their specific jobs and, ultimately, the company. Incentives are only powerful if the worker finds the reward interesting or altogether important.
- Rewards have to be realistically achievable; if they’re too difficult to obtain, the effect is the exact opposite.
Through RUSMICE, you can plan business trips, adventures or retreats that serve as wonderful incentives for your workers. We’ll propose incentives that fit your specific goals, budget and what you specifically aim to achieve.
