A Philippine Setting: Work Motivation of Employees and Motivational Strategy Evaluation In an Industrial Establishment
Keywords:industry, motivation, strategy, Philippines, workplace
The study sought to determine the work motivation of employees in an industrial establishment in the Philippines and how the motivational strategies that the company carries out are effectively translated into their workforce. The data was taken from a consented establishment and the employees were asked to answer the multi-dimension work motivation questionnaire. Qualitative data was also collected to determine the motivational strategies done by the company through an interview with their human resources department. Results showed that the workers in the industrial establishment were moderately motivated. This was constituted by the motivational dimensions with the majority of the respondents having a low amotivation score, low to moderate extrinsic regulation score, high introjected regulation score, identified regulation and intrinsic regulation score. Likewise, there was a significant prediction with three variables from the demographic data, which include the number of years in service, educational attainment and pay grade. The latter variable had the only negative predicting factor against the motivational score. The motivational score was, by theory, affected by the motivational strategy that was implored by the human resource management of the company. These strategies are categorized as work environment, rewards, punishment, leadership, and non-monetary incentives. Thus, the study recommended that there is room for additional strategies that can be made and added to current practices in industrial management, especially in the implementing department, to increase the motivation of workers.
