Pay for performance incentives and work attitudes

By R Drago, Saul Estrin and M Wooden


Using survey data from 565 private sector employees in Australia, this article tests how perfor Mance-related incentives influence worker attitudes. It is concluded that job satisfaction is related to incentives based on individual or small group perfor Mance, while organisational commitment is more strongly related to company-level incentives (gains-sharing). Tests for the bundling of incentives and participatory management and for the interactive effects of incentives, participatory managment and job security are insignificant in this data set
