    Respect, financial compensation, and as much job security as you can realistically offer. I'm assuming they already enjoy what they are doing.

    I would agree with that for the most part. I would suspect that there are many people doing jobs that they do not completely enjoy.

    The financial compotent in interesting, how do most people achieve the level of compensation they desire?

    Also benefits would fall into the financial compenstatoin package...

    Rewarding success is important.

    That is probably why collectivist governments fails miserably and usually result in mass murder and bloodshed

    Motivation - the work itself, if it's interesting then people will do well at it. If it's simple, boring and repetititive they've not going to be motivated to do a great job.

    Incentives - fair pay, fair conditions at work, fair supervision, recognition, reasonable promotion opportunities.

    I would agree with that. Are there some public service jobs that may not be interesting, ie garbage collector, toll booth attendent, mail room?

    I would say that you have just outlined one of the incentives for getting a college education.

    A job well done, and the inability to just be "content" with where you started - always wanting to see what happens if you take another step forward.
