ABSTRACT
This article discusses the principles that organizations employ when allocating rewards, such as pay raises to employees. Because appropriate allocation of rewards may enhance employee motivation and contribute to the realization of corporate goals and objectives, it is an increasingly important tool. Three rubrics for reward allocation are equity, which is based on performance, equality, which is based upon an equal distribution across the workforce, and need, which is based on the employee's personal need.
