English term or phrase: incent/incenticize
A new buzzword, at least here in Silicon Valley...

ex.
In a startup, it is important to properly *incent/incenticize* your team.

Similar to "motivate", but suggests giving something material--stock ownership, etc.

Is there an equivalent buzzword in Chinese?

"fu2 li4"


Explanation:
Fu2 Li4 褐  in my opinion is the most appropriate word in this situation. 褐  is the kind of reward (贱 纘 )that generally used to refer to benefit in a company.
