We took in focus the problem of rewards distribution in teamwork. Mostly researchers pay attention on it in accordance with rewards management in organizations, or just distribute rewards as a leaders or managers. It might be useful to take into account the perception of what have been done by all the members of team, their contributions to the teamwork. Our study examines the perception of members’ contribution according to their roles in team. The roles are based on Belbin’s famous theory of cooperate roles and we assume that free riders’ role is also actual. The study has experimental design, but we used questionnaires with particular instructions for each role: Executive (Action role), Idea generator (Thinking role), Socializer (Communicative role) and Free rider. We also added control group to check if the instructions made any sense. Pretest for instructions constructing was used. The participants had to distribute rewards among all the members including themselves considering the inputs of each member. The final sample consists of 251 respondents (approximately 50 respondents in each group) SPSS and JASP programs were used for statistical analysis. The received results give us the review of the perception of each role’s contribution to teamwork. The interesting points about free-rider role were examined: they evaluate their contribution higher than others’ do. We also examined that people think about themselves and make their decisions in accordance with their own role. The study might be useful in balance of compensation and benefits system in teamwork etc.
