Four out of the six suggestions involve more money to the employee though indirectly. The last company I worked for tried the giving me more responsibilities without a pay increase, that's why I no longer work there. I do like the idea of employees having more input, it makes them feel more connected to the day to day operations. I try to put myself in their shoes, if I wouldn't do it, neither will they. Give them a good wage, treat them with respect and you'll get it in return.
