Answers to my Questions
- Little surprises are motivation booster because it shows that employees are making their goals and doing their job correctly.
- Socializing with these people is a natural outgrowth of your common interests. If you take the time to get to know your fellow workers on a personal level you'll find that work becomes more pleasant and will most likely be more productive. Pg.136 happy @ work
- You need to be a role model for your employees so they can look up to you.
- Helping an employee with goals then if they achieve that goal they will not only get work done will also get an reward and a better relationship with their boss.
- Afew more minutes to socialize during breaks or lunch will get employees to know one another and be more friendly environment which cause more work and goals to get done
1: Herzberg: make workers more productive by rewarding them an example would be promotion.
2: Taylor: motivated by money workers should get paid by how many products they make not by the hours they work.
Yes i agree with the motivational theories from Herzberg because people doing what they are supposed to be and should get rewarded for working hard rather than the employees not doing what they are supposed to do. Taylor is also a good theory because some companies they have different jobs in that certain department and some others have a little more to do. Since they are working more or harder they should get paid just a little more.
In Depth Motivational Theories
Frederick Herzberg: Herzberg made the two factor theory of job satisfaction. Factors could be anything from clean toilets to a higher pay and everything in between. These factors are supposed to make employees to be motivated. It may not always boost motivation but if you don’t have these it lowers the motivation from all workers. Example of his theory would be to have workers be more productive by rewarding them with a promotion.
Frederick Taylor: Taylor's theory is to match employees to their jobs based on what they do best and their capability on a job. Once you find their best job train them to work the best that they can. He thinks employees are motivated by money. Workers should get paid by how many products they make not by the hours they work. I think he is right because you don’t want to give an employee a job that they are not good at and do poorly at. Since some people in the same department do more work so it would not be fair to pay two people the same amount when someone is doing twice the work than someone else.
