Motivation stimulates us for action. It seems impossible to reach the aims without it.
Audit of the employee motivation is primarily intended to determine the level to motivate employees and draw a map of factors, which affect the employees of the company the most. Following this diagnosis, it is possible to propose recommendations, i.e. the activity of (mostly low-budget), which may affect the motivation of employees, and increase efficiency throughout the organization.
Our tests are based on the model developed by Harvard Business School, in which the motivation consists of such elements as:
- Commitment - energy, effort and initiative presented by employee at a position
- Satisfaction - the extent to which an employer meets the expectations and needs of an employee
- Corporate membership - to what extent an employee identifies with the company and is committed to company's community
- Wish to remain in the company - commitment to company, lack of interest in changing current company.
Factors, which have an impact on motivation, are: incentives related to remuneration and promotions, incentives related to the social membership, incentives related to the development and incentives associated with a sense of justice, comprehensiveness of rules at work.
Previous tests indicate that most superiors think that their employees are motivated by financial aspect the most. However, it appears that other incentives are often more important. Usually these other incentives are not as expensive as financial inducements, but require line managers’ activity in certain areas.
Our consultants typically are focused in particular on non-financial incentives analysis as it does not involve large financial effort and most important improvements can be implemented in this area.
