London, UK: November 24th 2015 – An independent survey commissioned by Xactly, (NYSE: XTLY), a provider of cloud-based incentive solutions, has revealed that Oxford is the most motivated city in the UK, with the highest proportion of workers stating they would continue to work even if they didn’t need to (35%). By contrast, Sheffield describes itself as the least self-motivated city in the UK, with over half (54%) of the city’s workers stating they wouldn’t work if they didn’t need to.
Exploring what actually motivates our workforce, residents of UK cities cited financial incentives as the top motivating factor for “going the extra mile at work”. Nottingham workers were most in favour of an increased basic salary (45%) while in Birmingham, better bonuses were the top motivational factor for 32% of workers.
When looking at what non-financial incentives could motivate our workforce, the study revealed that:
- In Sheffield, extra holiday was the preferred non-financial incentive (32%), suggesting their attitudes might improve with more time off
- Food and beverage was the top motivator in Newcastle (36%)
- Workers in Belfast preferred short breaks and days out (16%)
