Motivation

THE TIMES 100

what is motivation

Motivation is concerned with the desire to do something or achieve a particular result.

Motivated employees result in:

  • Greater productivity
  • Better quality products or service
  • Lower staff turnover
  • Reduced absenteeism
What is motivation?
motivational theorists

It is useful to know 2 or 3 motivational theories from the following list:

  • Maslow’s hierarchy of needs
  • Taylor’s theory of scientific management
  • Mayo’s theory of human relations
  • Herzberg’s two-factor theory
Motivational theorists
maslow

Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs

  • The hierarchy starts with our basic physiological needs for survival.
  • As each need is met, the next need up the hierarchy becomes the motivator.
  • Workplaces can meet these needs e.g. pay provides the means to satisfy basic needs whereas training can provide for self-actualisation.
  • One criticism of Maslow’s hierarchy is that workers may not seek to have all their needs met in the workplace.

Mayo’s Theory of Human Relations

  • Mayo’s experiments showed that:
    • Teamwork is an important motivator.
    • Managers should take an interest in their workers
  • He suggested that physical conditions and pay matter less than social interaction when motivating employees
Mayo
herzberg

Herzberg’s Two-factor Theory

  • Motivators are factors that can motivate workers by providing job satisfaction.
  • Motivators are concerned with the job itself and include achievement, recognition and the responsibility
  • Hygiene factors are external to the job itself and can only cause dissatisfaction if not fulfilled.
  • Hygiene factors include company policy, supervision, pay and working conditions.
Herzberg
taylor

Taylor’s Theory of Scientific Management

  • Taylor suggested that workers are only motivated by pay.
  • Scientific management states that the most efficient way to carry out a task should be identified and then carried out – giving rise to production assembly lines.
  • Taylor supported close supervision and pay schemes that reward those that produce more.

barriers to motivation

Enterprise has highlighted the differences between workers who are engaged and those that are not motivated. This allows managers to identify workers who are not engaged and take immediate action. What are the signs of disengagement?
