There have always been questions and divided opinions about the way employers incentivize employees. When it comes to safety, many professionals agree that when employees are rewarded through incentives, the way they perform their work can improve as well as their behavior. On the other hand, many others agree that incentives such as gift cards and bonuses make employees not report injuries or hide incidents for fear of losing the incentive.
However, incentives that include recognition activities seem to be the most effective ways to build trust among employees to maintain them productive, motivated, and importantly ensure proactive safety behaviors.
