Abstract

Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to examine the perceived importance of non-monetary incentives as well as the degree of their current utilization within the civil service sector in Bosnia and Herzegovina. One of the aims of the study is to explore if non-monetary incentives have prospective to increase employee’s motivation in comparison to monetary rewards. Such finding could play a beneficial role in understanding the fact that an individual’s behaviour and motivation can be greatly influenced by alternative and cost-friendly non-financial motivating factors. The study is conducted on a sample of 129 civil servants of all categories at the state level. The relationships between the variables were evaluated by descriptive statistics, correlations and non-parametric independent samples test. The study findings demonstrate that the non-monetary incentives are not sufficiently utilized in the civil service sector. Furthermore, according to the findings, non-monetary incentives represent a very strong motivating factor and could be widely and actively used in order to secure increased motivation of the civil servants in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Keywords: Non-monetary incentives, Motivation, Civil service, monetary incentives.
