Monetary incentives have gotten a bad rap lately. In a recent New York Times opinion, well-known author Alfie Kohn boldly proclaims “science has confirmed” that monetary rewards amount to “bribes” that don’t work. If that’s true, why do virtually all modern business organizations provide employees monetary incentives for performance? It turns out that the truth about the effectiveness of monetary rewards in business settings is more nuanced than Kohn suggests. In this webinar, Emory University Professor Karen Sedatole explores the efficacy of monetary incentives.
