Most of us have to work for a living, need our job, and a job is a central part of our lives. If this is true then why do managers have to worry so much about employee motivation issues?
We work in our entire lives to better our living and save money for future security purposes. Therefore, the money is needed to buy food, pay for the rent, and have fun with family and friends. Also, the need to be independent makes us work for money and live one's life. Jobs provide income and allow the family to access amenities such as water and reliable energy. Jobs also creates money needed to improve health and education. Because the companies operate to achieve their set goals, managers must motivate employees to work hard to achieve the company's objective. This close monitoring by managers leads to increased company productivity and exposes the organization to achieve higher outputs. It is necessary for the employees to feel interested in their job to increase production. Also, the companies may later observe a corresponding decline in morale and productivity and, thus, managers' concern to motivate the employees to continue working hard.
