The study adopted case study design, using questionnaires, interviews and document reviews and studied a sample size of 80. Purposive and simple random sampling techniques were used to select the respondents.

The study established that monetary rewards had a significant positive relationship (r = .692, p = .000) with employee motivation in manufacturing companies in Uganda. In addition, non-monetary rewards had a significant positive relationship (r = .685, p = .000) with employee motivation in manufacturing companies in Uganda. The study concluded that bonus was the only monetary reward that had strong positive relationship with employee motivation while praise was the only non-monetary reward that had strong positive relationship with employee motivation in manufacturing companies in Uganda. The study recommended that PBL management should adopt a policy of bonus to all employees offering in form of a 13th cheque every December, as incentive and ministry of labor should use the findings of this study to lobby parliament to enact bonus as a statutory monetary reward. Finally, PBL should use “Public Praise” as an integral part of performance management strategy to increase employee motivation.
