You are right; compensation is tricky and there a lot of alternatives to monetary rewards to choose from.  œWith today’s flatter organizations, managers throughout the organization play an active role in recruiting and selecting the right employees, developing effective training programs, designing appropriate compensation systems, or creating effective performance appraisal procedures (Daft, 2012, p. 382). 

What if your research came back and the employee deserved a raise, but, there wasn’t a budget for it?  Saying thank you and ˜good job’ comments are good, but, not always enough.  How would you keep them motivated?
