The carrot won’t stick

Almost as an intermission, on my way to a full-length post on behavioral change and InfoSec: A shortie on Compliance.

Having realised that classical compliance is a hygiene thing: Nothing happens, until some factor sinks below the surface / zero; then, all heck breaks loose.
I.e., no carrot, many many sticks. Not your average well-balanced incentive scheme, right?

Classical awareness / behavioral change programs, then. Where only the winner, Employee of the Month, or less, will receive some recognition. Often, recognized among peers and colleagues ‘for being a d.ck’. The rest, that tagged along without doing anything particularly bad, or even only just arriving at the #2 spot: Not much, often Nothing.
A tiny carrot, possibly up some unsunshined place or used as pick, and not much by way of sticks.

Where is the scheme with a lot of carrots (but not for all, especially not as guaranteed sign-on bonus…!!) and a few sticks-in-private (as they should be!) …?

Just asking, maybe for an impossible thing but your considerate responses are very much welcomed… and:
