How Compensation Can Affect Behavior

I took a job as a caddie at a local golf course because the compensation package offered was quite enticing. The primary motivating factor for me was the high pay rate associated with the job. It was significantly higher than what I could have earned in other part-time positions at the time.

Additionally, the fact that I received a nice discount at the golf shop was an appealing aspect of the compensation package. As someone who enjoys playing golf, being able to purchase golf equipment and accessories at a reduced price was a definite perk. It made the overall compensation package more attractive and made me feel valued as an employee.

Another factor that influenced my decision was the occasional lunch treats from my employers. Although it may seem like a small gesture, I greatly appreciated it and enjoyed the food. It made me feel like I was not just another employee but a valued member of the team. This additional benefit contributed to my motivation to perform well and put in extra effort.

With all the compensation I was receiving, I was always excited to work and showed up everyday with a positive mindset. I worked hard knowing I was going to get paid well.

In summary, the combination of the high pay, the discount at the golf shop, and the occasional lunches provided strong motivation for me to take the job as a caddie. The compensation package as a whole made me feel valued, rewarded, and satisfied, which ultimately influenced my decision to engage in the set of behaviors associated with the job.
