Bon Jovi

With more than 125 million records sold, more than 2,700 concerts performed, and a million faces seen and rocked, Bon Jovi has carved out a New Jersey–size place in the rock pantheon. The band’s current trek into stadiums and arenas around the globe solidifies its status as the world’s most pleasing natural phenomenon after pizza volcanoes. Bona-fide Bon Jovi fans can hope to hear songs from the band’s most recent chart-topping album, What About Now, along with classic smash hits such as “Livin’ on a Prayer,” “You Give Love a Bad Name,” and “It’s My Life.” Remind the city that it was built upon subterranean deposits of liquid rock ‘n’ roll with a night of rollicking, riffing, and sentimental sing-alongs.

Will bonus be an effective option to get the best out of employees?

AUSCompliance Training

AUSCompliance Training

Managers and organizations all over the world, indulge in creating the best working environment that increases work performance and production levels in these organizations. The first and foremost task, to make employees more productive and efficient is, to motivate them. Motivation is what causes these employees to strive harder to accomplish the goals of the organization.

A lot of motivation theories are present to help managers understand the nature of employees and understand the factors that motivate them. One of the most common used strategies to get the best out of employees is, to provide them with bonuses. Maslow’s hierarchy shows that once employees are given their basic salary, they are motivated to gain more. Thus, providing bonuses will help motivate them. However, it is essential to use the bonus strategy effectively in order to make employees work better.
When providing bonuses to employees, the first thing to do is to attach a task with the bonus, so that employees strive harder to achieve the goal so that the incentive will drive them to move on from completing one task to another. This could be done for example by adopting a strategy that says “$1000 bonus for increasing cliental base by 2%”.
Bonuses must be realistic in order to achieve the best out of employees. It is a wrong step to stretch bonuses too high as it is possible that employees will find it difficult to garner those bonuses, and this in return will not motivate them, but would rather de-motivate them, and cause your strategy to fail.
The bonuses should be paid promptly on time so as to make sure that employees can develop a connection with the bonus, and in return, a loyalty with the organization. A bonus that is given on time enhances the image of the organization and enhances organizational commitment.
Managers and organizations should have a clear plan for the bonus provision if they wish to motivate employees to their best potential. A weak plan may indeed de-motivate employees and drive them further away from the organization, causing problems for the manager and an increase in employee turnover and employee absentee’s rate.
Bonuses can help employees to be faithful to the organization as they will be provided with the additional incentive of working with the organization, by reducing the opportunity cost of working in the organization. Bonuses are an effective strategy to drive employees to the achieve goals of the organization.

One of the very famous theory which is Herzberg’s theory states that hygienic factors play an equally important role which shows that salary increment alone is not capable of motivating employees or providing them with the incentive of working better. Motivation is the best strategy to increase the productivity of employees and of the organization as a whole. Paying bonuses can help get the best out of employees, but without any task attached to them, will
garner no positive effect for the business.

Dr. Anthony T. Materna Memorial Program on Medical Technologies


Saturday, October 5, 2013

What kind of an entrepreneur succeeds in Biotech? What’s in the DNA of the Biotech Company that drives it to success? Our October 5, 2013, program will decipher the complex “business and technical ecosystem” that nurtures a viable Biotech Company and drives it to success.
