In his point of view, the percentage of participation is proportional to the workforce population. To illustrate it, consider a company having 20% of its employees as smokers and it can’t expect attracting 45% of employees for Smoking Cessation Program.

Michael Carter, Vice President of Synchrony State in a HR consulting company states that only in some sectors the incentives work and not in others. Consider, a group of people who are hardworking, they constitute about 20% of any workplace and they do not need any special aspects like incentives.

There will be other section of people who are not bothered about incentives and they do not participate in any program. They are clubbed with people who are workaholics. Rest of the employees are they who need incentives very much. By providing incentives, they are encouraged to work hard.
