    Advice to Management

    The positive motivators identified by F. Herzberg in the 1950's when he formulated the "Motivation-Hygiene" theory are: achievement, recognition, the work itself, responsibility, and advancement. These are what your team needs; loads-o-money is nice but not nearly as good as being valued and trusted.
