According to Tornikoski (2011) compensation is an approach for providing monetary benefit to an employee in exchange of his work. Compensation is an important motive to attract and retain good employees for the attainment of managerial goals. This study attempts to investigate the types of compensation practices and its relationship with teachers’ motivation of public and private secondary schools. Through simple random sampling technique a representative sample of 312 male and female secondary school teachers was drawn from the population. The results of the study show that variations in compensation practices exist in public and private secondary schools. Various compensation practices affect teachers’ motivation differently. The study reveals that most of the compensation practices have significant positive relationship with teachers’ motivation whereas few of them signal fair degree of relationship. We conclude that compensation practices are effective stimulus for teachers at secondary school level.
