Velkommen til åpent seminar onsdag 23. oktober med Ola Kvaløy, Universitetet i Stavanger.

Professor Kvaløy vil presentere sin artikkel: Hidden Benefits of Reward: A Field Experiment on Motivation and Monetary Incentives.

Presentasjonen er en del av seminarserien i Økonomi og Finans på Handelshøgskolen ved Universitetet i Stavanger.

Abstract:
We conduct a field experiment in a controlled work environment to investigate the effect of motivational talk and its interaction with monetary incentives. We find that motivational talk significantly improves performance only if it is accompanied by performance pay. Moreover, performance pay reduces performance unless it is accompanied by motivational talk. By adding motivational sentences to an otherwise neutral explanation of the work task, the effect of performance pay goes from slightly negative to significantly positive. Hence, we find what we call a hidden benefit of monetary rewards: complementarity between performance pay and motivational talk.
