Abstract: The title of this study was Extrinsic Rewards and Employee Performance at Monitor publications Ltd, Kampala, Uganda. The study was guided by a general research objective of determining if extrinsic rewards received by the employees affect their performance. To attain the general objective, answers were sought to such inquiries as the profile of the employees, the level of extrinsic rewards received, the level of employee performance, the significant relationship between the level of extrinsic rewards and the level of employee performance, plus suggesting appropriate programmes to the company management for improvement. This study utilized the descriptive correlation design. The study population comprised 155 permanent staff with a sample size of 108 respondents. The findings revealed a significant and positive relationship between the level of extrinsic rewards and employee performance at Monitor Publications Ltd. In conclusion, from the findings, employees of Monitor Publications Limited were somewhat inspired in their job, which attributed to their good performance. But motivational factors were not sufficiently satisfied in order for energetic factors to come into play. This can block motivation and lead to poor performance in the long run. From the findings of the study, the researcher recommends that the management of Monitor Publications Ltd should invest a substantial amount in the reward policy to induce the staff to perform even better.
