New Study on How Neuroscience of Behavioral Economics Affects Employee Engagement
The Incentive Research Foundation (IRF) recently released a white paper and study, “Using Behavioral Economics Insights in Incentives, Rewards, and Recognition: The Neuroscience” that describes some of the unifying behavioral economic principles connecting emotions and employee performance. Based on the findings of this research and many other studies, most organizations do not follow best practices when it comes to incentive or rewards program design.
The report cites four “social drives” outlined by Harvard researchers Paul Lawrence and Nitin Nohria that complement people’s biologic drives and regulate virtually everything happening in the workplace, noting that “If we learn how to work in tandem with these productive drives, our companies will enjoy maximum productivity and our employees will experience maximum engagement in their work.” Read more here.
