Recently, the manufacturing sector in Zimbabwe has been failing to operate at full capacity because of a turbulent economic environment which is not conducive for business. Consequently, the deteriorating business environment has led to the failure of the sector to reward its employees appropriately. The current research was designed to explore extrinsic rewards, employee motivation and organisational effectiveness in turbulent economic times with specific reference to the Zimbabwean manufacturing sector. A self-administered questionnaire was used to collect data from a systematic sample of 140 employees. The findings of this study showed that extrinsic rewards have a positive and significant relationship with employee motivation and organisational effectiveness. In addition, the study found a positive and significant relationship between employee motivation and organisational effectiveness. Recommendations have been provided on how the manufacturing sector can improve employee motivation and organisational effectiveness. It is envisaged that this study could assist top management with the tools to motivate the workforce and subsequently achieve organisational effectiveness. Furthermore, this study has contributed to the literature on extrinsic rewards, employee motivation and organisation effectiveness from the developing world where most businesses are failing to perform optimally because of prevailing economic challenges.
