Abstract:

This study is aimed to analyse ways of motivating employees to improve their performance at work. In assessment of this aim, this study used deductive approach where a qualitative survey was carried out among employees of United Company. The survey was meant to get the employee’s responses on what they think or feel are the best ways that would motivate them among a list of four motivational aspects. 50 employees out of 300 were used as sample population and a written survey questionnaire developed from literature review used to obtain information from the sample size. Empirical findings analysis showed that among the four listed motivational factors, the most preferred strategies of motivating employees in the company appeared to be offering the families of the employees’ financial aid and offering the employees an upgrade or promotion. Awarding the employees rewards and bonuses, as well as a pay raise were other factors that the employees considered ways that could motivate them, although less effective motivational strategies as compared to the other two mentioned above. There are certain limitations of the study including the survey being conducted only on a sample of employees of United Company. The time the study was conducted was also limited and the employees had busy schedules, therefore, making it difficult to obtain information from them. Another limitation was that the study is based on sample size since not all employees participated. In addition, the research was limited to financial motivation as the main strategy and determinant of employees’ performance. The study is also limited to existing models and theories and their limitation and influence on enhancement of employee performance.
