Abstract

The purpose of the study was to determine the effect of performance incentives on employee efficiency in Deposit Money Banks (DMBs) in Dutsin-Ma Local Government Area (LGA) of Katsina State, Northwest-Nigeria. The population of the study comprised the sixty (60) employees of all the DMBs in Dutsin-Ma LGA of Katsina State, Nigeria (vis-à-vis First Bank Nigeria Ltd., United Bank for Africa PLC and Unity Bank PLC), of which a sample of 52 respondents was drawn using the proportional stratum allocation technique and the simple random sampling technique. The primary data was collected through the use of a structured questionnaire and was analysed through descriptive and inferential statistics using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 20. The study, thus, found that DMBs in Dutsin-Ma, Katsina State encourage employees through performance incentives and there are positive significant differences among the performance incentives used (vis-à-vis training, better working environment, benefits, base pay, feedback, recognition, participation, career development, profit sharing, gain sharing, initiative rewards and special rewards); financial performance incentives have a positive significant effect on employee efficiency in DMBs in Dutsin-Ma, Katsina State and non-financial performance incentives have a positive significant effect on employee efficiency in DMBs in Dutsin-Ma, Katsina State. Hence, the study concluded that there is a positive significant effect of performance incentives on employee efficiency in DMBs in Dutsin-Ma LGA of Katsina State, Northwest-Nigeria. The study, therefore, recommends that Management should increase the level of performance incentives they give their employees or as enjoyed by their employees in order to increase and sustain their employees’ levels of efficiency. Management should continue to give their employees financial incentives and continue to allow their employees enjoy non-financial incentives in order to increase and sustain their efficiency, make them be willing to increase the speed at which they work, and for them to continue to do their work with no errors.
