There has been an increase in employee dissatisfaction in the company. Your supervisor has asked you to develop a plan to increase motivation for two employees in your department. You have surveyed the employees to learn more about what they value and what is important to them in the workplace.
Below are the lists of their workplace priorities. Items are listed in order, with the items at the top of the list being more important than the items further down on the list. You have also made a few notes based on your observations of their work history and performance.
Discuss the following points in a report (Microsoft Word) to your supervisor:
- Discuss the leadership style you have used with each employee. (Use the two leadership style articles in the readings.)
- From the readings, choose the theory of motivation that you feel would be most effective to use with each employee and explain your reasons.
- Describe how each of these employees would relate to that motivation theory. For example, if you used Maslow’s theory, on which level would you place each employee and why?
- Determine two ways that you might motivate each employee. Your existing budget does not allow you to offer raises, and there are no open positions above these employees’ positions at this time, so promotions would not be an option. Discuss your motivation ideas for each employee, and explain why you think your motivators would be effective.
