The benefits are far greater for business to offer what employees desire: opportunity to grow, flexible hours, recognition, opportunity to contribute, and autonomy, than to compensate employees with cash. This paper will discuss the advantages of using non-monetary incentives in the workplace. Monetary Rewards Although everyone needs money to obtain the smallest of essentials to live, employees prefer the benefits of non monetary gifts and incentives for motivation in the workplace. When employees receive money as a reward, the money is generally spent on bills and other expenses or purchases that the employee needs. The reward is considered an impersonal gift, as it will not be spent on something that the employee will enjoy.
Also it may incur the cost of having to retrain either the managers or the outlet staff assistants on how to do the role of the supervisor and they may demand more pay. Overall I feel that it would be best to de-layer the business and to do so by removing the supervisor’s layer. This is because it would incur a smaller cost financially to remove this layer and lead to more pro’s such as a quicker decision making process and hopefully a more efficient business. Though I would also suggest to Tim that he allow smaller decisions such as whether an outlet is allowed to re order new stock, be down to the managers of the individual outlets.

Some people may argue that unemployment is ¡°a part of the functioning of the economy¡±. They are partly right, for the unemployment is inevitable because of the dynamic economy. This kind of unemployment is called natural rate of unemployment©¤the sum of frictional and structural unemployment. However, this is only a part of unemployment. Because the firms ¡°cut back and produce less¡± when they experience recessions, they will employ fewer workers.
• Companies can just settle for fewer profits by absorbing the increase labor cost. • Companies can save on labor cost, as a result there is less employee turnover. • Workers can respond by voluntarily working harder. Schmitt concludes that how individual firms react to the increase depends on a complex set of circumstances that economists cannot fully capture or explain and this could explain why economists often have trouble establishing a clear link between a higher minimum wage and higher unemployment. INTRODUCTION Minimum wage was established under the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938.
This skill set may not be a core competency of its business. To focus their core mission in providing a high quality product and service to the customer what makes sense is offshoring the task to people can perform better. The company not only spend less on employee trainings and save precious man-hours but cut costs as well. The competitive advantage by outsourcing is a good opportunity to other company to serve in their companies by providing service in any business system. Outsourcing will allow the company to share any associated risks with their outsourcing partners there by reducing your burden.
The overwhelming feeling is that pay is fine as a short term motivator but when it is used continually workers can become reliant and it can put pressure on employee relations as well as encouraging them to work purely for economic reward. Managers will not always be disappointed with results as explained but there are other ways to motivate which have shown to produce continually good results such as job enrichment and making employees feel as though they genuinely matter. In my opinion, managers who use pay incentives can achieve good results but from reading the articles as evidence my advice would be to use them sparingly.  Organisational Behaviour – compiled by A.

Nevertheless, some firms just produce A’ which is less than A* with cost C’ while some competitor firms are able to produce A’’ which is more than A* with cost C*. Because this competitor firm might be able to aggregate the demands of a large number of clients and cause production surplus (Besanko et al 2009). Moreover, they may gain learning economies by exploiting their experience in producing for many clients in long period of time. As result, the cost of purchasing from some competitor firms is lower than perform in-h... ... middle of paper ... ...ourcing strategies in an IT company shows in the following diagram, it just outsources the commodity with low business value and operational performance.

Valence can be affected by organizational ladders, company size, and frequency of hiring practices. A company that frequently goes through layoffs can hinder performance in its employees, unless they have the valence to move to higher positions. If the three key factors in expectancy theory could be quantified in numbers, the proposed equation by Victor Vroom is as such (QuickMBA, 2010): Motivational Force (MF) = Expectancy × Instrumentality × Valence Managers can use expectancy theory to determine what will motivate their employees, and get better output, at a more efficient
