Abstract The study examined the influence of rewards on workers performance. Subjects for the study consisted of one hundred workers of Central Bank of Nigeria, Abuja. Data for the study were gathered through the administration of a self-designed questionnaire. The data collected were subjected to appropriate   statistical  analysis using Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient, and all the findings were tested at 0.05 level of significance. The result obtained from the analysis showed that there existed relationship between extrinsic reward and the performance of workers, while no relationship existed between intrinsic rewards and workers performance. On the basis of these findings, implications of the findings for future study were highlighted.
