Abstract

Many organisations cannot function without the commitment and co-operation of its employees to carry out the set tasks and objectives of the organisation. In doing so, employees are usually paid for their service by means of a salary, usually a financial base pay. However, as is the case in many organisations employees will be rewarded by some kind of reward scheme. These schemes are aimed at rewarding employees for achieving set goals within the organisation and also play a pivotal role in motivating employees within the workplace. Motivation is an extremely topical area of study, one that is complex and intriguing and a worthy topic of study.

This research follows from the title as an ‘Exploratory analysis of the role of motivation in the workplace’ in doing so the researcher carefully compiled the relevant literature and carried out a quantitative research method by analysing the data received from a sample of respondents who undertook and submitted a quantitative questionnaire providing the primary data for this research. In completing the aims and objectives of this research, the researcher explored the areas surrounding the how employees were positively motivated by employee reward and the perception of these employees towards the motivating effects of rewards and benefits. In order to do this all the analysis was compiled using graphs and charts and studied to examine the information gathered so and any patterns that emerged before analysing the data received to satisfy and complete the objectives set for this research.
