    The study asks employees what they want and so its no surprise they day more money and promotions. Its not a great way to get data because people are bad predictors of their own motivators. Other studies have shown that monetary incentives are a poor motivator.

    Interesting article! Other studies have shown employees are also looking for meaningful work and employer feedback. Whether you’re overhauling promotions or looking into new ways to provide recognition, cultural fit is important. That’s why the hiring process itself is so key. If you make sure you hire employees who will fit into the culture, those employees will be happier and more engaged. In the interview, whether in person or through online video, make sure the candidate will be a good fit for your current company culture for a more engaged workforce.
