I agree with you Derek. Historically wouldn't you agree though that Europeans have been more risk averse than employees in the U.S? Thus bonuses are not as appealing to them? I know that the gap is less noticeable now.

Yes, that's true, Jacque. I'd like to see this trend become "historical" in fact. In my consulting travels across Europe, I see more resistance to the power of frequent, timely recognition and rewards and much greater reliance on "how we've always done it."

Where in your source data is bonus ranked last as a motivator? Did you read past the exec summary of the source?
