ABSTRACT
Organizations have difficulty creating and implementing nonpecuniary incentives, partly because social processes involved in offering them have yet to be elucidated. I develop a new theoretical concept, "institutional incentives," that emerged as I conducted field-based research. I explain how managers create and implement institutional incentives, embedding them in organizational processes.
