With particular reference to the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital in Rivers State, this study examined the relationship between the reward system and public healthcare employee performance in Nigeria. The particular goals were to assess the relationship between promotion and employee service quality in UPTH, the relationship between incentives and employee commitment in UPTH, and the relationship between promotion and employee commitment in UPTH. Spearman's rank correlation coefficient was used to test the hypotheses while 92 sampled respondents completed a structured questionnaire that was used to collect data for the study. The results showed a strong correlation between the study's variables. The study's conclusion is thus based on the data: There is a significant relationship between employee performance and the reward system, which includes incentives and promotions. The compensation structure used by the healthcare providers determines how well employees perform, as measured by their dedication and quality of service. Based on the results of the study, the following suggestions are offered: Healthcare organizations should think about using reward systems as a tactic to boost worker performance. Promotion and incentives are crucial tactics that healthcare organizations should take into account to increase employee dedication and service quality.
