The key to motivating employees!

They say a happy workforce is a productive workforce... don't they? Well apparently it's not money that makes workers happy, it's pizza! In a new book, Payoff: The Hidden Logic That Shapes Our Motivations, psychologist Dan Ariely detailed an experiment he conducted among workers at a factory in Israel.

This was the experiment...

One group of workers were told they’d receive a bonus of around $30 if they completed the work. A second group were promised a voucher for a free pizza. A third group would receive a text message from their boss at the end of the week congratulating them. 

The pizza group showed the biggest increase in productivity!

Try asking your boss for some free pizza and let us know how it works out...
