Abstract

Motivation and job satisfaction play a crucial role in enabling organisations to be successful. The purpose of this study is to examine and compare the factors influencing the motivation and job satisfaction of two groups of middle managers in an Irish Civil Service Department. The data was primarily gathered from the Employee Attitude Survey with 77 respondents. From the seven constructs examined the findings show that satisfaction with empowerment, satisfaction with pay and overall job satisfaction were found to be influenced by age, salary and length of time in the grade. The survey has its limitations as the sample was taken from one small Government Department but it is anticipated that a larger scale survey replicated across the Civil Service could provide a clearer insight to what motivates middle managers in the Irish Civil Service. Recommendations emanating from the research are also proposed.
