MGMT645 – Project – Part A: Reward and Performance Practices

Due Week 2: Part A: Reward and Performance Practices

Part I. Begin your paper by presenting an overview of current research and scholarly views on the topics of employee motivation, efficacy of intrinsic vs extrinsic rewards, the relationship between employee motivation and productivity, performance appraisal, etc. Utilize Google Scholar, Lexis Nexis Academic, or any other research search engine to find and present these foundational concepts. The first section of your submission should not mention your chosen company. In the second part of this assignment you will articulate current practices of your chosen company, and compare them to your research findings.

Part II. Second, conduct and present research that evaluates the current reward structure in your selected organization. Be sure to examine both monetary and non-monetary rewards. Evaluate the effectiveness of these rewards on performance. Additionally, assess how this reward system motivates (or fails to motivate) employees and articulate how your chosen company evaluates employee performance. Identify how the practices of your chosen company align with current research. Please read this week’s announcement for additional content guidelines. Note: this is not where you will make recommendations – that will come in the final project.
