Abstract

Organisations go through a lot of challenges when it comes to attracting, retaining and engaging skilled workers. According to Ghoshal and Bartlett (1995) ‘adding value to people’ is considered to be an overall aim of the reward management. In other words, the purpose of having a reward system in place is to motivate employees and to encourage participatory engagement. Furthermore, this paper will focus on; total reward system, recognition and employee motivation in answering the question of ‘why rewards management?’

This research study examined reward policies and ranking sixteen factors that influence employee motivation in different organisations/ sectors in Ireland. A semi-structured interview was used as well as a descriptive survey method with the questionnaires as the main data collection instrument. The questionnaires used were adapted from both Armstrong (2010) and Kamdi’s (2010) questionnaires on reward policies for employees and Kovach’s (1987) questionnaires on employee motivation.
