Does "If you pay peanuts, you get monkeys" principle still work? The word "motivation" means to indicate the interests, desires of a worker to apply certain efforts, and take necessary steps to satisfy the career needs. If there had been an opportunity to ask the company owners what kind of employees they want to have in their companies, the answer would have been clear. All of them would come to a unanimous senses about having an employee who has the ability to think and act independently, the ability to show creativity, take reasonable risks, and ability to take responsibility for their actions. How does a company find itself in a situation when a worker that has been chosen exactly by the company authorities' starts being lazy but his work turns into an acceptable one? There could possibly be malfunctions during the process of employee selection, but what about the skills that the majority of the company owners are proud of? The skill that show your talents. Money is the engine to everything, but sometimes it may not be enough to keep the employee working hard with a strong amount of effort.
Managers apply a lot of effort to make the working places of their companies look attractive for professional and skillful employees. It is not enough just to pay the salary now. Money in today's society is not a factor that can make the employee work at his full potential. If a person works in a company only because of money or is money-motivated, that person can easily be purchased by that company's rival. No company is interested in letting a valuable employee work for another company, because it can inflict a considerable amount of damage to that company. That's why employers should understand that a money-motivated employee is a potential "snake" of the company. Money by itself is obviously not a sufficient motivator at work. An employee working for money will never put in an extra amount of effort.
