A highly motivated workforce is the key to become more profiatble, gain higher levels of customer satisfaction and makes employees not want to leave.  Research shows that extrinsic rewards like money and gifts can not explain human motivation, instead the scientific focus is directed on intrinsic rewards. The white paper “Motivation on the Brain – Applying the Neuroscience of Motivation in the Workplace” from UNC deliver new understandings about this subject e.g.: “Dopamine, long thought to be the happy neurotransmitter, is actually the reward and punishment transmitter.” This means that the brain can be retrained to increase a person’s motivation for rewards.
