Money may not be the top motivator at work. In fact, Leonard J. Glick, professor of management and organizational development at D'Amore-McKim School of Business, thinks that putting money first could be a mistake. “I think managers or companies get into trouble when they view money as the only motivator and overlook other aspects of the organization,” he says. According to Glick and others in the field, workplace culture, team dynamics, and the perceived importance of one's work are often the most motivating aspects to an employee.
