Why You Should Not Use Monetary Incentives to Increase Productivity in the Workplace

Sometimes, in the end, using money as an incentive can negatively impact productivity in the workplace.

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being, and Peak Human Performance.

Sometimes using money as an incentive to increase productivity in the workplace can give you quick results that may appear effective at first, but in the end can demotivate further. Money gives short-term benefits to the organization and the employees, as well.

Increased Costs

It is quite obvious that when you tend to give out benefits you will in turn, incur major costs, depending on the spending. These will cut into the business profits and as a profit-making organization, this might not be one of the best ways to motivate your employees. When the motivation levels reach their peak, the monetary incentives become a ongoing expense.


Trying to increase the productivity in the workplace can often be something that will take time to plan and then execute. Sometimes trying to involve money may require you to raise the money and so on. This means that there is going to be a lot of logistics in preparing a package that suits each employee.

Lastly, the benefit derived from money is short term. For example, give an employee an incentive this month, next month they will expect another one. This means you have to be prepared to face such issues when you decide to use money as a motivator to increase productivity in the workplace.

More Motivation Tips for Productivity in the Workplace

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being, and Peak Human Performance.

Productivity in the workplace is something that is driven by the levels of motivation in the workplace. As management, you need to ensure that employees are well motivated in order to increase this aspect of your organization. Nothing can be as derailing as an organization that has everything but productivity.

Interest in the Career

There isn’t much more motivating than knowing that your top level managers, or simply put, your boss, is interested in your career. In the end, you will find that employees will be motivated to achieve more for an organization that offers more opportunities for them or at least is concerned about their future. The key here is to be genuine about your interests in the employees’ future and you will see an increase in productivity in the workplace.

Work-Life Balance

Employees are humans and as such shouldn’t be overworked. When you take interest in how employees are balancing their family and work, it gives them a boost. They will be more productive in the hours they work and also will be happier because they are able to spend time doing other things that are not work related. When employees are appreciated like this, they will often be grateful and that gratitude is shown through productivity in the workplace.

Motivational Keynote Speaker Highlights on Limitations of Goal Setting

A motivational keynote speaker will tell you that it is important to always set your goals carefully, so that they are not too difficult to achieve.

 Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being, and Peak Human Performance.

 Motivational speakers often give talks on setting goals and it’s importance. There are major benefits to be derived from the process of setting goals. But, like other things, situations might go south if this process is not done with great caution.


Goal setting often involves to-do lists and because of this, you find that people will prioritize the list, with the more tedious tasks at the beginning. A motivational keynote speaker says that some times, you might feel overwhelmed by the task and in the end resolve to procrastinating. Because there are other takes that you might enjoy that are on the list, you will end up doing those instead. Researchers say that procrastination rewards in the short term and is most likely to happen often, once someone starts.


This is a major disadvantage of setting goals in life. Life is too unpredictable to be setting fixed goals and designing a path you want to follow. When you set rigid, stiff goals, you will have trouble trying to achieve them and as a result, you will become demotivated. In order to fight this, ensure that you build in some degree of unforeseen circumstances in your life. Also, don’t discourage yourself because life is unpredictable.

Motivational keynote speaker Andy Core says goal setting is very delicate and needs careful execution.

In the business world, it is essential to create business-working relationships that will increase the amount of business you receive.

Essentials in Presenting Yourself

Another important thing is your business card. This small card will create an impression on the person with whom you want to do business. It needs to be appealing to the eye and have the correct information on it. As a professional speaker, always put a lot of thought into the way your business card looks and the information it shows. People in the business world will notice the way you dress. It needs to be business formal, but try to add a touch of your personality. With the ever-changing fashion trends, it is good to update your look from time to time.

Your hair needs to be clean at all times as well as your nails. People do look at small details and these factors, if they do not receive proper attention, can be the difference between getting a business deal or not. The way you carry yourself in general is very important, especially in the way you talk.

These are a few pointers on how a professional speaker can always look their best.

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being and Peak Human Performance.

Confidence in the workforce of an organization can unlock avenues of higher productivity in the workplace. Productivity is definitely a desire of all management and most of them have recently been implementing various programs to help improve productivity. One of the most desirable things about a workforce is its confidence in the company. Confidence in a company can lead to higher levels of productivity in the workplace and can mean a lot for a company. What most people fail to understand is that once the organization stimulates certain levels of confidence within itself, it translates to the outside in terms of customer service.

The Impact of Confidence

When employees are confident in a firm, they have a sense of pride in their work and because of this, they tend to value their work and will in turn achieve more in the long run. Working is something that is naturally in the human system, but working with a passion is something that needs to be cultivated in the workforce. The responsibility of management is to create an environment that feeds confidence into the employees of the firm. Management is there to encourage the workers to love what they do and whom they do it for. Confidence and loyalty will increase productivity in the workplace.
