Save me from incentivisation!

Can anybody help me?

I'm desperately trying to find another word to substitute for "Incentivising". A colleague came across this foul neologism, and I am struggling to find a word with which to replace it.

I am stuck between "encourage" and "reward", and need something that captures both concepts.

Please. For the love of English! Somebody help me!!

I might help you but I would need some incentive.

'providing you with a carrot' (of carrot and stick fame)

'material encouragement/motivation'

'reward-based encouragement/motivation'

I think I prefer material motivation if it has to include both concepts, even though I required no MM to write this.
Good luck
