The Missing Piece: Incorporating Organizational Factors in Employee Motivation Research
Peng Sun & Xiaode Zuo
The paper discusses the concept of employee motivation in the workplace and its importance for organizational success. It highlights the gap in literature regarding the most effective ways to motivate employees, which mainly focuses on individual factors such as personality traits and motivational theories. The paper aims to explore the impact of both individual and organizational factors on employee motivation and to determine the most effective ways to motivate employees. The existing academic research on employee motivation is plagued by contradictions and inconsistencies, particularly regarding the emphasis on individual factors as the primary drivers of motivation and ignoring the impact of organizational factors. The paper argues for a more holistic approach to employee motivation that considers both individual and organizational factors.
