Those who succeed should be the ones who see pay increases and more benefits.

Those employees who do try very hard and do put a lot of effort and time towards accomplishing what has been asked of them are indeed valuable people to a business. The problem is if they are not delivering the results that are asked or expected of them, then they should not be rewarded just for effort.
