Worker Productivity Can Jump 30 Percent When It's For A Good Cause: Study

Working to benefit a good cause increases productivity by up to 30 per cent, according to the findings of a new study from the University of Southampton.

When workers are given a social incentive such as a charitable donation linked to their job, performance increases by an average of 13 per cent, rising to 30 per cent amongst those who are initially the least productive.
