Abstract

The objective and aim of this research study is to explore monetary and non-monetary rewards and their effects on the employees’ motivation in the healthcare sector in Ireland. Secondary research was used to create a better understanding of rewards systems and how they motivate employees. A qualitative method was used to conduct this research study and semi-structured interviews were utilized to collect the data. The research study had a sample size of fifteen healthcare employees, they were all above the age of 18. The participants were selected from a particular hospital located in Dublin, Ireland, using Snowball sampling.

One of the core finding of this research study is that the healthcare employees in Ireland are motivated by both monetary and non-monetary rewards, however they are motivated more by non-monetary rewards. The two non-monetary rewards that motivate them the most are recognition and job security, other non-monetary rewards include job satisfaction, flexible working hours and training. The monetary rewards that motivate them are base salary and overtime payment. Limitations of the research study were considered, and future research questions were also provided.
