Many employers feel that it’s the money that motivates people to work. The promise of an employee being given a blank cheque to write it themselves is not appealing to all employees. Finance teaches that there are risk takers, risk avoiders and those who are neutral. It’s imperative that an employer considers whether a potential employer is a risk taker, a risk avoider or a neutral person who neither takes risks nor avoid it, before offering a remuneration package to them.

Proper package for your staff helps in reducing costs of hiring due to high turnover while motivating them to give more to the company. Before changing a package for your temporary staff, a good manager will make it known to the staff and whether they are fine with the proposed change. Input from staff will also help you to calculate your costs and measure whether any proposed moves are viable or not.
