"Incentives and Rewarding in Social Computing";
Communications of the ACM,
Incentives and rewards help align the interests of employees and organizations. They first appeared with the division of labor and have since followed the increasing complexity of human labor and organizations. As a single incentive measure always targets a specific behavior and sometimes additionally induces unwanted responses from workers, multiple incentives are usually combined to counteract the dysfunctional behavior and produce desired results. Numerous studies have shown the effectiveness20 of different incentive mechanisms and their selective and motivational effects.14 Their importance is reflected in the fact that most big and mid-size companies employ some kind of incentive measures.
