"Access to information? Rapid response by manager? I worry that you would risk creating more problems than you would solve with some of these"

If Maister is suggesting that a manager give an employee access to otherwise confidential information as a "non-cash reward," then I agree with you - I'd be worried about how to manage that type of reward system long-term.

From an HR perspective, I'd also worry about a manager that thinks that a rapid response or access to standard (i.e., "non-confidential) business information is a "perk" rather than simply routine business management!
