Likewise, the tie up between the reward and performance should be made for employee retention and their commitment to work.  It ultimately improvise the contributing factor of the employee. Employees should perform well to be rewarded and the approach designed for this is “Pay for Performance”. Apart from the base pay, which is based on job description, a variable pay should be announced for their outstanding performance.    Although the pay raise motivates the employees to an extent, ultimately they want them to be appreciated and recognized in a society for their work.
