Assume that the human resources department of your selected organization has received disappointing results on a job motivation survey administered to
all employees at all levels. The results indicate that employees reported lower-than-industry-average job motivation, and management is concerned.
Employee comments on the survey included the following:
My job is so boring!
My boss micromanages me but never tells me how I’m doing.
I’ve been in my position for fifteen years, but I am never allowed to provide any input about making the work better.
You have been tasked with writing a paper that reviews the theoretical perspectives relevant to the situation in your organization. In particular, you are
interested in systems theory and job motivation for this week’s analysis.
Write a paper addressing the following:
Summary: Identify the organization you select and provide a summary of it. What is it? What does it do? Cite research from a variety of sources, including the
company’s website, social media sites, company blogs, industry and trade sources, and other sources. The summary should include the organization’s
products or services, customer or client base, areas of operation or distribution, history, main competition, and current situation (whether it is an industry
leader, a start-up, or a well-established corporation).
Analysis: Analyze the factors that affect job motivation and the internal and external consequences of low job motivation. At this time, you do not need to
propose any solutions. Rather, you are using scholarly literature and data (e.g., observations, discussions, events, outcomes, reports, etc.) from your
organization to analyze factors and consequences related to job motivation.
