Undoubtedly, this is a very interested topic I am really interested of. At least in my country it is normal to encourage workers through bonuses when they have done an outstanding job or when they have achieve their goals proposed at the beginning of the year. Of course, these bonuses are not given to each employee of the company; it is given to the managers or group leaders instead. Also I have noticed that worldwide organization apply it because everyone wants to offer the best standard of life to their family, which only money can sort out.
According to the EFQM model (2010), motivation is going in the way on making them feel as a valuable and important part of the organization, on which they should be encouraged to add extra value to the organization focused to be aligned with the organization Mission, Vision and strategic goals. The idea is also make them participants when reviewing strategies, policies or plan to be followed to comply with the organization goals. This is very important because everyone would demonstrate commitment to the organization and also they will feel extremely satisfied after all the short-term goals proposed have been accomplished.
Furthermore, promoting training programs to people is also very important to make they feel motivated because them when they achieve what they have aimed, satisfaction of have it done properly is the best intangible reward a human being could receive.
