How Pizza Encourages Productivity in the Workplace, According to Science, Trumbull, Connecticut

How would you react if you received an email from your boss stating you would receive a free pizza if all your tasks were completed by the end of the day? For many workers in a computer chip technology company, this was a no-brainer. They increased productivity when promised with this reward. If you manage a business, or are looking for new ways to motivate employees, this study may convince you to start bringing pizza into your workplace.

The Science Behind Pizza and Productivity

As part of a reward-based psychology study, certain workers at an Intel® factory in Israel were sent one of three emails that promised a specific award at the end of each day if they finished all of their tasks. These included a £20 (about $30) bonus, a pizza, or a compliment from their boss. To create a control group, some workers did not receive an email.

However, compliments and pizza seemed to be the best at improving worker motivation, as this group slightly underperformed at 6.6 percent. Cash, on the other hand, came in last with only a 4.9 percent increase. Over the next week, pizza and compliments continued to be an encouraging motivator to improve productivity. The cash reward ended up causing a drop in productivity and costing the company more to operate.
