A new Forbes article titled “Benefits Gone Wild” shines light on a recent workplace phenomenon: corporations are bucking traditional benefits and vastly expanding what’s offered in their employee rewards programs.

But do custom, specialized rewards work? The article draws a few conclusions:

  • In order to be effective, the rewards have to be valued by employees.
  • Each reward will only motivate the performance of certain types of employees.
  • Therefore, offer rewards that appeal to critical employees to attract and retain them.
