Abstract

This paper discusses what motivation is, the different types of motivation and how motivation correlates to an individual's level of job satisfaction. Once intrinsic and extrinsic motivation are discussed, a recommendation of which type of motivation is more appropriate for the workplace is reached. After looking at the correlation between motivation and job satisfaction, this paper shows factual evidence through four known theories of motivation. The theories that are discussed include: Herzberg's "Dual Factor Theory"; McClelland's "Theory of Needs"; The Self-Determination Theory; and Vroom's "Expectancy Theory." With the support of these theories and the decision of which type of motivation is statistically proven to have a larger impact on the workplace, ways to increase intrinsic motivation are shared in conclusion to increase motivation in the workplace.
