8-2: Do you think you would personally be more motivated by more frequent raises or by performance bonuses if the annual amounts were the same? I think I would typically like a smaller raise vs a bigger one, due to the responsibility that is attached. In my experience, when a pay raise or privilege is given, the work level of responsibilities typically increases. It would be natural for me to think that the expectations of me have increased if they are taking the time to give me a pay raise that is above satisfactory. Frequent raises to me would mean that management is constantly overseeing production and its employees that are contributing. 8-3: Annual pay raises in the United States are expected to be around 3 percent in the next few years. Do you think this percentage is motivating to employees? Why or why not I don’t think its motivating due to the economy being on the declining side with the cost of living as a whole. In a sense I feel that people would be initially grateful in a sense but questions of the pay raise meeting the basic needs of people would happen. Percentages do matter because it’s a good compare and contrast too in determining if we are going in the right direction in the job market and the pay scale.
