For Love or Money? Motivating Workers
The authors conduct a field experiment and test how employers can use socioemotional resources, such as appreciation and recognition, in order to signal intentions and create positive reciprocal relationships with employees. Results show that these resources led to a significant gain in productivity. The study is extended to account for relative wage concerns both with and without appreciation treatment. The results suggest that workers not only compare their wages, as pointed out in previous literature, but also compare the socioemotional resources provided by their employer. This provides important evidence against one-dimensional comparisons of relative wages relevant to worker productivity.
