The motivation process

motivation

The motivation process progresses through a series of discrete steps. Needs/motives are the starting drives within the individual. These drives generate a search behavior to achieve particular goals that will satisfy the need and lead to reduction of tension. The action taken by the individual will lead to reward/goal which satisfies and need and reduces tension.

Employee motivation is of crucial concern to management; mainly because of the role that employee motivation plays in performance. usually performance is determined by 1. Ability 2. Environment and 3. Motivation. If any of these three factors is missing or deficient, effective performance is impossible. A manager may have the most highly qualified employees under him and provide them with the best possible environment, but effective performance will not result unless the subordinates are motivated to perform well. Therefore, management can do its job effectively only through motivating employees to work for the accomplishment of organizational objectives.
