Appraising and Rewarding Performance
2. Then on, money as a means of rewarding employees, motivational models applied to pay, cost-reward comparisons, and behavioral considerations in performance appraisal.
Certainly ,money is valuable because of the goods and services that it will purchase. All of us have seen its importance as a status symbol for those who have it and can thus save it, spend it conspicuously, or give it away generously.
Money has status value when it is being received and when it is being spent. It represents to employees what their employer thinks of them. It is also an indication of one employee’s status relative to that of other employees. It has about as many values as it has possessors. (e.g. P135)
Extrinsic and Intrinsic Rewards:
Money is essentially an extrinsic reward rather than an intrinsic one, so it is easily administered in behavior modification programs.
However, it also has all the limitations of extrinsic benefits. No matter how closely management attaches pay to performance, pay is still something that originates outside the job and is useful only away from the job.Therefore, it tends to be less immediately satisfying than intrinsic job rewards.
