Why is there a potential for distortion in performance when using reinforcement to motivate behavior?

▸ Reinforcement does not offer enough reward for change.

▸ Reinforcement encourages negative behaviors before employees can be eligible for reward.

▸ Reinforcement is time consuming when attempting to change a behavior.

▸ Reinforcement encourages repetition in behaviors.

▸ Reinforcement encourages employees to focus on a single variable.

Reinforcement encourages employees to focus on a single variable.

Managers must be on constant alert for unintended consequences of incentives and other reinforcement efforts. For example, because they often focus on a single variable, incentive programs can distort performance by encouraging employees to focus on that variable to the detriment of other responsibilities.
