Abstract

The main objective of this study is to research the relationship between the application of reward management systems on the performance and motivational levels of the employees of a leading retailer, Penney’s in the Republic of Ireland (ROI). Previous studies have argued that the application of effective rewards management systems positively impacts the motivational levels of employees, which in turn causes an increase in their performance levels. It is necessary to mention that this study and the results found can positively contribute to the business world in general, more importantly, retailer organisations in ROI. With the valid information that this study will provide, it can enable these organisations to re-evaluate their reward management systems that are in place currently and make changes if needed to improve their efficiency and effectiveness. The paper will compromise of seven relevant chapters. Firstly, Chapter one will introduce the topic whilst chapter 2 the literature review will discuss past research and studies conducted on the areas of this current study. Chapter 3 of the paper will highlight the research question of the whole study. The paper will then progress to chapter 4 the methodology, how the researcher conducted the study and chapter 5 the analysis and findings, where the researcher will discuss in depth the results of the study. Finally, in chapter 6 the discussion, the researcher will build on the main discoveries from the analysis and findings chapter, linking the results of the secondary research findings displayed in chapter 2. The author will then conclude the paper highlighting the key areas and findings whilst making recommendations for future research in chapter 7.
