Study says that pizza makes you more productive at work

It is even more effective in boosting your productivity than money!

Most employees are motivated by the approaching day of salary. It is a no-brainer that money is included in the factors of motivation for you to work harder. But did you know that there is a greater motivator than money? It's pizza. Yes you have read that right. The scrumptious aroma and cheesiness of pizza get us every time.

Duke University psychology professor Dan Ariely proved this on his book, "Payoff: The Hidden Logic That Shapes Our Motivations, involving Israel employees at an Intel factory.

One of three factors were promised to participants: pizza, compliments, or a cash bonus, given that they managed to reach a quota of assembling computer chips that day. A group with no messaged sent, which served as the control, was also present.

On the first day, pizza showed the greatest promise, increasing productivity by 6.7% over the control group; compliments at 6.6% and cash bonus being the lowest at 4.9%. On the second day, the experiment got more interesting as those who were promised a cash bonus performed 13.2% worse than those in the control group.

The experiment ended with compliments winning. It concluded that compliments were the best motivator but Ariely believes that pizza would won if done in his way - the winning employee would receive a pizza at home through delivery. "This way...we not only would give them a gift, but we would also make them heroes in the eyes of their families," he stated on his book.

A fair or higher pay is definitely an essential to live but it is no secret that we all love a delicious slice of pizza or even a box of it.
