According to the Institute for Employment Studies principal research fellow Dilys Robinson, extra holiday allocations are among the non-financial benefits which firms could offer to their workers.
Senior managers could also express their thanks directly to employees who have performed well, she added, in order to keep them motivated.
She stated: "It also helps if communication is clear and two-way, i.e. employees can make suggestions, which are listened to."
When it comes to pay rises meanwhile, Ms Robinson noted that many of the country's workers are adopting a realistic approach at the moment, and are aware that they are unlikely to gain large financial benefits from the organisations they are employed by.
Earlier this week, the commentator said that managers should be trained properly so that they can maintain the motivation of employees.
