A study carried out showcased that the Filipino's are more driven by the intrinsic motivators rather than extrinsic motivators. This means that tangible rewards have less weight as compared to intangible rewards such as recognition, self-satisfaction and autonomy (Cho & Perry, 2012). The intrinsic rewards often make the workers have a feeling that their work is challenging, relevant as well as interesting. Each organization always has an objective behind its running of activities, one of the main objectives being to attain certain set goals. Job insecurity may also lead to reduced performance among the employees as they lack the motivation to work. Various research carried out on performance appraisal showcases that if an employee’s work is recognised ad appraised by the management, then he or she will get the motivation to work thus improving performance.

The intrinsic factors often influence the quality of work in most organizations. Another factor involves allowing employees to make decisions in their places of work. As well as organizations face challenges such as employee retention, high recruitment costs among others, employees’ also feel overworked as well as de-motivated. To come up with more accurate results, we researched some of the Amazon stores. The essence of the study is to find out how rewards in the workplace affect the performance of employees within an organization.

The tool also comes up with routine descriptive statistical data for responses on the questions such as the distribution of multi-choice question responses. Design The method that was utilized for the study was the use of a detailed survey by the use of questionnaires. The purpose of using the design is to be able to make a collection of information that is well detailed and describes an existent phenomenon.

Nevertheless, some of the demotivating factors include excessive responsibility and workload as they often make the employees pressurized. The study also showcases the importance of the relationships with peers and superiors. A positive effect is also noted with job security since the employees will often feel safeguarded that their job is secured. Moreover, giving workers the authority to make decisions in their work section is also a good motivation tool. The limitations of my study is the lack of cooperation by some of the participants with some of them returning incomplete questionnaires. It will also prove difficult to be allowed to carry out the study in Amazon stores since their rules might not allow. Some participants may also be rude to the research team since people have different personalities as well as a way of understanding.

On the other hand, the analytical tool also has certain limitations such as; its graphics are far from the publication quality and does not offer graphics capabilities. The tool is also expensive, and it may drain the research team financially. This study will be done in only one sector, and there are various sectors that the research can be carried out. If better outcomes are generated form all sectors of our economy, then the nation will be bound to develop.
