Abstract: The main objective of the study is to examine the effect of reward on employee motivation in International Rescue Committee (IRC), Ethiopia Program. A mixed research approach was employed to answer the research questions. The quantitative data was gathered using survey questionnaire and a total of 163 respondents completed the survey questionnaires. To triangulate findings and to better generalize the findings of the quantitative data, interview was conducted with the Human Resource and Administration Department of the organization and one open ended question was included in the survey questionnaire. In addition to descriptive statistics, inferential statistics including Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation Coefficient, Multiple Linear Regression, and ANNOVA were used to analyze the responses; and SPSS version 20 was used. The findings revealed that all the reward components have a positive and significant relationship with motivation. The motivation level of staffs in IRC is good and, among the reward components, fulfilling work, learning and development, and the overall organizational environment are good in IRC Ethiopia and of course only these three components are significantly affecting work motivation. Staff are not happy with the payment, benefits, working condition; and recognition components; but result showed these components have no significant effect on motivation in IRC Ethiopia. The reward components account 45% for the variance in work motivation. The ANNOVA test indicated that there are no significant differences in reward distribution and motivation level based on most of the demographical variables. Master’s Degree holders are more dissatisfied with the payment than diploma and first degree holders
