Motivation: For Understanding And Action


This program is designed to teach supervisors ways to define, maintain and reward employee motivation. We will outline the three key factors for sustaining motivation: 1) Recognition: recognizing employees for doing their jobs well by verbal or material rewards 2) Participation: involving employees in their work and giving them some responsibility for making decisions, and 3) Growth: giving staff the opportunity for personal development on the job such as the chance to acquire skills and knowledge. We will also outline the importance of maintenance factors -- how physical conditions, job security, and social relationships effect employee motivation.
