Question description

Hello Everyone,
According to Pound (2006), "US employers spend $100 billion a year on incentives like T-shirts, golf outings and free trips to Florida in the belief that they somehow motivate and inspire their employees. But what they're forgetting is that gimmicks don't buy engagement or motivation. That takes equitable pay, opportunity, and -above all -respect (p. 40)."  


Do you think leaders and managers can motivate their employees? Do you think there is a difference in motivation and engagement?

Pound, J. (2006) The great motivational myth. Management Services. p.40-43 .
