Ann, Thank you for this inaugural Take Five!

The findings Ashley cites are speak to fact that the workplace remains a social setting and that employees want to feel connected. I suspect that, in addition to the reverse causality she's hypothesized, there may be an aspect of pay-as-hygiene-factor at play. That is, the degree to which rewards make an employee feel appreciated will depend on the degree to which they feel that their base compensation is fair and meets their basic needs.

But, again, thanks for bringing this to the Cafe.

Hi Joe,

Thanks for the comment!

Great point on the potential presence of a pay-as-hygiene-factor influence. I agree that this dynamic is likely to be in the mix as well.
