In an era of corporate buyouts, downsizing, and budget cuts, motivating employees whose jobs have been radically changed or completely done away with, is not a job for anyone without a sound plan to guide them along. This paper is on an Operational Motivation Plan, defining the role of an organization, a manger, and the specific incentive elements of the plan.
Organizations and managers have a responsibility to enhance the environment for their employees. Today the workplace has many employees, from many different backgrounds; that it makes it even more difficult for organizations and managers to know how to motivate each and everyone on their team. These employees are motivated in different ways because of their perception of their culture. .
Motivated employees are more productive, happier, and stay with the organization longer. By understanding employee's needs, organizations and managers can understand what rewards to use to motivate them. They must also, show leadership in their motivation, training skills and trust. Motivation by reinforcement allows the staff members to make mistakes and work backwards to rectify it.
The role of an Organization - An Organization is a group of people who work independently towards some purpose (Glinow, 2003). In an organization, employees should be shown that they are more important then the policies and regulations imposed. Organizations can motivate employees with commitment to their staff in the performance of their jobs. .
Organizational structure defines how job tasks are formally divided, grouped and coordinated. Organizations everywhere are putting in place plans to satisfy customers and improve profitability (Humble, John, 1994). Yet, these plans are nothing but a bunch of ideas from a group of people within an organization. To make these ideas come to life, an organization must place mangers in positions to do so.
