MOTIVATION

Motivation derives from the Latin word movere, meaning, ‘to move’. Employees are essentially the most important aspect of an organization. Managers strive to motivate their employees so that they are willing to perform at their highest levels. When employees work hard, come to work regularly and continue making positive contributions to the organization, the business will be able to cut costs and yield more profit, both of which are the ultimate goals of any organization. On the contrary, unmotivated employees will mean the organization will have people that are not willing to do well in the jobs or have to hire more people to do different jobs, which contribute to higher operating costs and a reduction in profit. Motivation is an important area of business research and over the years there have been many 'motivational theories'.

Motivation is a set of favourable or unfavourable feeling and emotions with which employees view their work. Motivation is an affective attitude –a feeling of relatively like or dislike towards something.  If the employee is de motivated with his or her job they will quit the job faster.

Some factors effecting motivation are universal and consistent. However, there are more important factors that contribute to motivation, such as relationship with the immediate supervisors, monetary and non monetary needs, Incentives, Working Conditions, Work Culture, management recognition of employee job performance, and communication between employees and senior management.
