Incentives or Bribes?

Hugh Hefner is hardly a guru of employee performance, at least not in the traditional sense. But it turns out that in one instance Hugh and his Playboy bunnies did their part to keep workers productive. Toronto based I Love Rewards, a provider in results driven rewards and recognition solutions, has a concierge service where employers have the ability to reward their employees with any incentives they want, anywhere they want, and anytime they want to do it. One employee redeemed his reward for passes to attend a party at the Playboy Mansion.

Is that an example of return on investment in employee performance? Yes, say most experts. Incentives work, even non cash varieties like the jiggly party with Hugh. A trip to see the Playboy Mansion isn’t a very common employee incentive, but there are literally millions of various gifts, trips, rewards, events, cash bonuses and more given out by employers every year across North America in the name of improving productivity. I Love Rewards alone has 12 million rewards in its catalogue, including sky diving lessons, says CEO and Founder Razor Suleman.

Make. Work. Better.
