The paper reveals how business has determined that money is not the only thing that employees want. The paper looks at compensation trends today and how they are being used in the automobile industry. The paper explains how the career anchors that an employee has (i.e., what is important to the employee), strongly influences what will motivate him/her to work harder and continue to perform at a high level. The paper shows how the trend, therefore, is to compensate employees based on what they need and want. The paper concludes that if the automobile industry continues to do this, it will also continue to please its customers.
