To achieve the above research objective, three research hypotheses were put forward. The first hypothesis determined the relationship between reward management system and employees’ morale. The second hypothesis determined if there was any significant difference between financial and non-financial reward management and workers’ effectiveness. And the third hypothesis determined if reward incentive positively affected employee performance. The study used the descriptive survey research method.
