Yes, I may use bonuses regularly if I become a manager. Because it is obvious that people will be motivated by bonuses. Although pay is not a key factor driving job satisfaction, bonuses will keep employee’s satisfaction level up in the most of time. Work environment will be improved when rewarded, which will make the employee improve their job performance and efficiency. Reward may be back fire but it will motivate the employees work in the positive pace. As a manager, bonuses is a good way to motivate the employees, in order to make more profits.
There was a tough time in my middle school. Before the final exam, my mother told me that if I get the better mark in the final exam, he would reward me a trip to japan. Due to this reward, I focused on the study day and night. I kept the studying till the midnight. The bad thing happened was that I got a sudden illness.
I had a high fever lasting three weeks and had to have an operation. I not only missed the final exam but also stay in the hospital over three month. The doctor told me that the sudden illness was the result of the heavy pressure. This goal led me offer myself too heavy stress thus I engaged in unproductive behavior which was I kept myself in the anomalous daily schedule.
No, I think that providing group bonuses instead of individual bonuses would be less effective. Although providing group bonuses will contribute to the group spirit, providing individual bonuses is fair.
Providing individual bonuses is based on the individual’s performance, every single employee will perform better in the work. While providing group bonuses, there will be someone pretend to work and not try him best to work. And the most hardworking team member will dissatisfaction with the rewarding, it is not equitable to the team star. Therefore, providing individual bonuses would be more effective.
I would design a reward program concerning the intrinsic interest of employee and avoiding the negative behavior. First, there will be a intrinsic rewards to let the employee recognize the programs and not lose the interest of the task. Second, the reward is based on the variable-pay programs. And in the company we will enhance the role and discipline of the enterprise, the employee may avoid the unproductive behavior. It is important to design a program.
