The higher the monetary bonus, the lower the performance.
Small business owner, are you? Entrepreneur maybe? Or is it your job to hire and retain employees in your workplace? Irrespective of why employee retention and performance should matter to you, if it does, this post is for you.

Daniel Pink, author of several awesome books, including ‘To Sell is Human’ and ‘Drive’, is an authoritative figure when it comes to work, employees and motivation. Embedded in this post is a video of one of his talks (that has been supplemented with excellent graphics). He talks about what really motivates us, and money is much further down the list than you would think. In fact, in tasks that are primarily cognition related, the higher the monetary bonus, the lower the performance. Surprised? Watch the video to learn more and improve your employee motivation efforts (Subscribers, your email provider may not support videos, please follow the blog post's link to view it on the website).
