* Employees won't be sure of what they are doing so the chances of them making a mistake are greatly increased. * Employee conductivity will not be as good as it can be. * Damage to reputation could occur from the member of staff making mistakes. * Low moral can occur if not fully introduced to every aspect of the job and staff member. They may feel confused and lonely in the job. * If there is a poor induction there is an increased amount of staff leaving in the short term because they do not like the way the company is run. In turn this will cause extra expense through having to look for new applicants for that job role again. Frederick Herzberg motivational theory : - Frederick was born in 1923 and was a clinical psychologist and pioneer of 'job enrichment'. He is regarded as one of the great original thinkers in management and motivational theory. Frederick's theory can be compared with Maslow's Hierarchy of needs.

But to withdraw shares in Tesco you must have worked there for 5 years to withdraw tax free. There is nothing to stop you from withdrawing these shares from Tesco after you've been given them. This can be treated like a bonus from Tesco if you choose to sell your shares in Tesco right away. Through retail stores, Discounts can be given as incentives too. Tesco offers different levels of discounts dependant on how long you have been working for them. The longer you have worked there the larger the discounts are, this is again another incentive to work there for longer. If staff stay at Tesco for longer, it means less money on looking for new employees and the training needed for them. Certain industry jobs pay on a piece by piece rate, the amount you produce dictates how much you get paid. This is being paid by Piece Rate. Companies that rely on constant output of products will use this, so they are always working to their full potential. So requirements can be set as a minimum production and a target for them to work towards. If they produce more than a certain amount they can be given bonuses etc. With piece rate payment, people can work for the minimum amount of time/units then finish.
