performance bonuses – they, uh, don’t actually work?

Posted on 01 June 2010

I’m not terribly sure where I found this video, I think someone posted it on Twitter a while ago. Interesting food for thought though – is it a bit of a challenging notion that once people are paid enough to be comfortable and not be stressed about money, they don’t actually produce better work when financial reward is the motivator.

I hope nobody from work sees this and gets any bright ideas. I rather like my bonus, thanks very much. A lot of what’s here really rings true though… what do you reckon?
