Abstract

In today’s highly competitive global market place, a motivated workforce is essential to ensure high performance of an organisation.

With the insurgence of temporary employees into the marketplace the aim of this research paper is to establish if there is a difference in the motivational levels experienced by permanent and temporary employees. There few research papers that attempt to quantify the motivation levels of employees and compare the two contract groups. Research indicates that this may be as a result of the difficulties in measuring motivation levels.

Using the Hackman and Oldham 1975 Job Characteristics model and associated Job Diagnostic Survey, this study found that there was no significant difference in the motivation levels experienced by permanent employees (n=42) and temporary employees (n=22) in this sample.
