Does Money Increase Your Motivation?



Does Money Increase Your Motivation?

Important: You must watch the W3 Now What? video in the 'Required Excersises' folder in order to answer this discussion question.

Imagine that a coworker is complaining to you about being upset after learning that another coworker is being paid more despite the complaining coworker being at the company a year longer.

Watch the “Now What?” video and discuss the following questions:

  • What role do rewards play in this situation? How do the surface and symbolic values of the rewards influence what happens?
  • In chapter 5 we discussed equity theory. How do the concepts from equity theory apply to this situation?
  • As a manager, what could you have done to better handle the situation? Why would this be a better solution? Please provide 1-2 examples to support your viewpoints that other learners will be able to assess and debate within our weekly discussion forum.

Read at least two learners’ initial posts and post your responses. Apply the weekly readings to assess your peer posts’ critical factors on the importance of reward systems for motivation.
