ABSTRACT
The article reports on the result of a study which analyzes employees preferences on how to be recognized. Findings reveal six categories that define employees specific traits that can be used by companies to motivate their workers. It has been found that employees can be classified as freedom yearners, nesters, award seekers, bottom liners, praise cravers, and upward movers. Researchers suggest that these insights can be considered by employers in improving their incentive programs.
