When an employee works hard enough, a company or management is expected to give something in recognition of his or her service, effort or achievement. A Reward system is used to increase employees' productivity, how much work they get done and how effective they are to the organisation.

blog.gr8jobsng

What I've seen is that there is a significant portion of people who truly do enjoy their jobs-and most of them make good money. This is because people are satisfied when they are good at something. And when people become really good at something, they become a scarce commodity. Scarcity translates to value, which of course means money. So, if you're looking for practical advice, I would say find out what you enjoy and can become great at, and then try to maximize your job satisfaction by providing value, not by looking for the biggest paycheck. The exceptions to the value = pay rule tell us a lot about which is more important.
