Signing bonuses promote trust, raise expectations

Signing bonuses promote trust, raise expectations
To close the deal with job candidates, employers are more likely to offer signing bonuses in boom times than during a recession. But the payoff in employee attitudes and effort was found to be considerably greater with a tepid economy -- when candidates far outnumber open positions and the bonus is viewed as having real meaning -- a new study suggests.

I find this study interesting as to the expectations linked to the signing bonuses. With that financial incentive it's only logically for a company to expect more of that employee but it's like a blind trust since you are assuming that what they say of what they can perform before you hire them is true. Good take home points here.
