The employees’ definition of job satisfaction may or may not be diverted from just earning money to do a task of interest or to face new challenges or to learn more and more in the existing field. In such cases, to maintain or to increase the productivity of the employees, the employees should be motivated and directed towards the common goal. The word “motivation” involves energising, directing and sustaining a person’s efforts. The general way of motivation that is brought in practise by almost every organization since a long time is “The carrot or stick” approach. It is one of the oldest approaches that have been put at use in almost all known fields and in the real world too. The carrot signifies a reward whereas the stick signifies a punishment. The overall idea is to use rewards or penalties to make the employee complete the task with enhanced productivity. The concept is quite simple. Give the employees something worth increasing their productivity, or put pressure of work on them so that they bring out better creativity for avoiding penalties and punishments.Using the carrot approach, the employees are motivated to do a task in turn of perks or complementary leaves to name a few rewards. A common example can be that of working for overtime hours. While using the stick approach, the employees are brought under a fear of penalty so that the employees focus on the task and try to give his best.
