Compliance or engagement what does a modern day knowledge worker need?

Compliance is for Motivation 2.0 , Carrot Stick method of motivation so prevalent and successful in the factory environment.

This kind of risk and reward method of energizing employees stimulates mundane , routine bound work and kills creativity.

The modern day knowledge worker needs engagement and not compliance to unleash creative instincts so needed in modern day businesses driven by innovation.

Hence Motivation 3.0 is based on intrinsic motivation and hence engagement.

Applying compliance and engagement on a case to case basis can lead to best results
