Do Social Incentives Matter? Evidence from an Online Real Effort Experiment

Mirco Tonin and Michael Vlassopoulos ()

Review of Environment, Energy and Economics - Re3, 2013

Abstract: Money matters, but is that all? This column presents evidence that social incentives can boost productivity in sectors that rely on pro-social behaviour such as health, education, and social care. It argues that this may help explain the growing popularity of Corporate Social Responsibility programmes within firms.
