Work Motivation


Work Motivation

Motivation is the internal condition that activates behavior and gives it direction; energizes
and directs goal-oriented behavior.
The challenge at work is to create an environment in which people are motivated about
work priorities.
Too often, organisations fail to pay attention to the employee relations, communication,
recognition, and involvement issues that are most important to people.
The first step in creating a motivating work environment is to stop taking actions that are
guaranteed to demotivate people.
The next step is to identify and take the actions that will motivate people.
There are various theories to motivate people at work places.
A few techniques that can motivate people at work are making only the minimum number
of rules and policies needed to protect the organisation legally and create order in the
work place; publishing the rules and policies and educating all employees, developing
guidelines for supervisors and educating them about the fair and consistent application of
the few rules and policies, etc.

Entitled: People who are comfortable with an equity ratio greater than their comparison to the
Instrumentality: The belief that performance is related to the rewards.
Relatedness needs: Deal with our need to be accepted by others, achieve mutual understanding
on matters that are important to us and exercise some influence over those with whom we
interact on an ongoing basis.
Valence: The value or importance one places on a particular reward.
