Is Money an Effective Motivator at Work?
When I saw this topic, my first reaction is yes. Because we are all work for money, which could support our family, for eating, dressing, traveling, shopping and so on. To be honest, money could bring everything, including happiness. So it is impossible for someone to work hard without money. But after second thought, I realized that there are some other motivators of work, such as self-interest, social status, or some other reasons.
About working is for money and power, the impetus of ordinary workers is inseparable from the topic. Intermediate managers, especially Chinese, insist that money is the most powerful force. All things are obedient to money,really? Money – poor credit card, is it always a powerful motivator of performance? Theorists of Authoritative organization think that the policy with sticks and carrot can make the workers work, this type of carrot-and-stick could really use in the industrial revolution.
Most economists who hold the concept of “economic man” has a similar view. To these views, Psychologist’s reactions are very strong. They cited some surveys as evidence. What is the most important factor? When the workers were asked about the work of judgment, “pay” generally is in the sixth, located after safety, colleagues at work, tastes, benefits, etc. Recently, some other survey found that pension and other benefits are of importance than salary. But money is not the only power.
Work safety, fitting, a caring environment is motivation. About the power of work, I discussed with some classmates who have been working for several months. In the process of chat, students think work environment including leadership, colleagues and environment construction, people always think a good leader is the greatest power, their work colleagues of harmony and comfortable working environment is the premise that oneself like work, have harmonious environment is happy.
When it comes to work, students from better family condition don not care for salary; while from poor families generally care salary a lot. About when they start working passion, everyone has many words to say, also have their own experience and the experience in the work can be said that at the beginning of every time, any work is ok. but with the time passed by, some people began to reflect on their behavior and pay, a few people began to complain that the blame, not to let oneself introspect neself. I have summarized the work force like our first job, to love our work and commitment in the present work, as his own life for most, can do his work, work motivation is quite enough, Work with high pay is the important factor generated power, Good working environment and harmonious interpersonal relationship is the leader of the work force, charger Leadership is highly beneficial supplement of the work force, it’s difficult for you not want to have power with the above conditions.
Actually, every job contains many personal growth opportunities, when young just entered society; they should not concern too much about money, but the consideration of salary. We should pay attention to the work itself could brings what reward to us. As the development of oneself, increase their ability of social experience, enhance personal personality charm is more meaningful. And compared to work experience and acquired skills, a small salary is not so important.
The boss pays you money, and you give his lifelong benefit, this can make you priceless. Facing the job, we should put more long-term vision, to see their future development, to see your future career. Because of our hard work, we can learn knowledge, experience, competence and skill, which laid the solid foundation for the future career. So, even though we now look like a silly person, and could get only little money, the harvest will come soon.
