INTRODUCTIONManagement of human resources is a significant area of any organisation which involvesstaffing, remuneration and other benefits of employees which can motivate workers to workmuch better for the development of the company (Terera. and Ngirande, 2014). The total rewardsystem is an extra benefit for employees which motivates them to work better according to setstandards and qualities. This essay is mainly based on the reward system for employees whichcan motivate them to work better in the organisation which can help to them to earn more. It willalso identify the link between motivation and reward.Total reward is the term which describes about the relationship between employeesperformance and rewards given to them. So both have inverse relationship as there is morereward, performance will go high and if reward is low then performance will be constant. Totalreward system is the employee reward strategy which includes investment by the organisation onemployees i.e. pay, pensions, learning and development, etc. Total reward system is a long-termapproach where it motivates employees to work well and for the organisation. It should not bebased on complicated structures, as it may confuse employees. Its foundation should be based onincremental basis, and it is not necessary that it include monetary values only. Every individualis unique in their own way and it is not everyone whose motivation only involves around money,each and everyone’s need may differ like some employees are career driven so they will work inless salary also as their objective is to get higher position in the company (Chelnokova, Willoch.and Leknes, 2014). On the other hand some employees may only work for earning incentives,some are attracted to office environment or packages by the companies. Sometimes manager’sinvites their team for team lunch or for long vacations after every achievement which is teamreward and it motivates a team to give better performance than before. So overall it can be easilyevaluated that rewards can be in two forms: monetary and non-monetary rewards.

While non-monetary rewards are those which cannot measure inmoney but still motivates the employees by making them feel that they are very important for theorganisation, like introducing them in seminars, appraisal by CEO for his good job, appreciationby seniors in front of subordinates by clapping, etc. The structure of reward system helps anyorganisation in attracting finest employees to work with them, sometimes reward system is seen
as an organisational work culture. For example people from all around the world, wants to workwith google as they provide free work culture and no pressurized work is given to the employees.The motivation level of their employees are very high as their reward system is very amazing(Lammel, Lim. and Malenka, 2014). So it is essential for the senior management to construct areward system according which is suitable and preferred by the employees which can help tomotivate more to them to work. Non interesting rewards can decrease the appealing factor of thereward system to target employees so it is better to construct according to the employees.
