Prosperity in a monetary reward system and its relationship to motivation (English)
Abstract [en]

Syftet med denna studie var att bidra med empiriskt material om hur relationen mellan individers framgång i ett monetärt belöningssystem och motivation påverkas av individers stewardship-grad.

En stor del av tidigare forskning på motivation och monetära belöningssystem har fokuserat på det traditionella sambandet mellan motivation och prestation; att monetära belöningssystem är motivationsskapande. Vi valde istället att fokusera på det faktiska utfallet av ett monetärt belöningssystem, genom att analysera utbetald rörlig ersättning och dess relation till motivation med hänsyn till stewardship-teori. Vi utvidgade befintlig forskning och teori genom att separera effekten på motivation från en individs framgång i ett monetärt belöningssystem, och studerade effekten i samverkan med stewardship-grad. Det empiriska materialet inhämtades från två separata företag inom samma Skandinaviska koncern. I överensstämmelse med vår hypotes är ett monetärt belöningssystems utfall på motivation i allra högsta grad beroende av stewardship-graden.

Vårt resultat indikerar att individer med en låg stewardship-grad blir mer motiverade när framgången i ett monetärt belöningssystem är högre. Vidare tyder vårt resultat att individer med en hög stewardship-grad blir demotiverade när framgång i ett monetärt belöningssystem ökar. Vårt resultat bidrar till befintlig forskning om monetära belöningssystem och motivationshämmande effekter.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to contribute to empirical studies about how the relationship between an individual's prosperity in a monetary reward system and motivation is influenced by an individual's stewardship-rate.

Most previous research regarding motivation and monetary reward systems had studied the traditional relationship between motivation and performance. Suggesting that motivation was created by offering pay for performance to employees. We on the other hand, focused on the aftermath of a reward system by analyzing actual outcome from a monetary reward system and its effects on motivation, with respect to stewardship-theory. We therefore extended previous research and theorizing by separating the effects on motivation from an individual's prosperity in a reward system, by testing the interaction effect between prosperity and stew-ardship-rate. The empirical data were collected through two separate companies within a Scandinavian corporate group. In conformity with our prediction, a monetary reward system and its outcome on motivation, is highly related to an individual's stewardship-rate.

Our result indicated that individuals with a low stewardship-rate gets more motivated when prosperity in a monetary reward system is higher. Furthermore our results indicated that individual's with a high stewardship-rate gets demotivated when prosperity in a monetary reward system is higher. These results contribute to the existing research on monetary reward systems and motivational crowding-out.
