Abstract

This research project asked: How can management encourage and enhance employee engagement in The College with the aid of motivational theories?

The aim was to help management identify the factors that enhance employee engagement at The College by analysing some of the most widely referenced motivational theories. The research question included focus topics to identify if any of them had an impact in the engagement of employees within the organisation, the topics were: financial rewards, job security, culture, autonomy, flexibility, communication, discretionary efforts, change within the organisation, development and growth, and challenge. The literature review provided the grounds for the creation of an interview protocol used to collect qualitative data from employees. The study findings confirmed that the culture of the organisation, flexibility and autonomy were the most important factors to keep employees engaged within The College.
