Motivation at Work

According to Dan Pink, more money is a motivator when it comes to physical work. However, when cognitive skills are involved, more money is a de-motivator. The solution is to pay people just enough so that money is no longer an issue, when it comes to cognitive work.

This film also explains the rationale behind giving people at work a chance to work on their own innovative projects.
