Does Money Really Affect Motivation? A Review of the Research

Does Money Really Affect Motivation? A Review of the Research | Business News | Scoop.it

We all need to get paid. But the evidence suggests it undermines our intrinsic motivations.The results indicate that the association between salary and job satisfaction is very weak. The reported correlation (r = .14) indicates that there is less than 2% overlap between pay and job satisfaction levels. Furthermore, the correlation between pay and pay satisfaction was only marginally higher (r = .22 or 4.8% overlap), indicating that people's satisfaction with their salary is mostly independent of their actual salary.

Great article for our current topic of financial and non-financial motivation in the People in Business unit.
