About This Meeting

It might seem that sharing a generous ownership benefit with employees would inherently lead to greater motivation. The research, however, shows this is not the case. Motivation at work is driven more by work organization, particular how companies share information and provide greater opportunities for input into decision making in the context of employee ownership as a long-term reward.
