Chapter 7: Sociocultural Aspects of Play, Sports, and Physical Activity Chapter Terms Competence through excellence : Extrinsic motivation : Traditionally, extrinsic motivation has been used to motivate employees: Tangible rewards such as payments, promotions (or punishments). Intangible rewards such as praise or public commendation. Within economies transitioning from assembly lines to service industries, the importance of intrinsic motivation rises: The further jobs move away from pure assembly lines, the harder it becomes to measure individual productivity. This effect is most pronounced for knowledge workers and amplified in teamwork. A lack of objective or universally accepted criteria for measuring individual productivity may make individual rewards arbitrary. Since by definition intrinsic motivation does not rely on financial incentives, it is cheap in terms of dollars but expensive in the fact that the inherent rewards of the activity must be internalized before they can be experienced as intrinsically motivating. However, intrinsic motivation is no panacea for employee motivation. Problems include: For many commercially viable activities it may not be possible to find any or enough intrinsically motivated people. Intrinsically motivated employees need to eat, too. Other forms of compensation remain necessary.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
