It is often difficult for employees to devote themselves and engage fully in teamwork activities whenever their leaders favor some of their counterparts while showing bias against others. As the Two Factor Theory puts it, employee satisfaction and dissatisfaction have to be handled separately to ensure that the right measures are initiated whenever there are challenges that jeopardize the prospect of organizations attaining their goals. It is therefore the role of managers to make the environment of their workplaces ethical to attain the level of motivation needed to make employees perform effectively.

When it is discovered that a worker can fulfill the requirements of their job, but are experiencing shortcomings in doing so, many times it is believed that worker motivation may be the root of the problem (Laird 95). What, though, is work motivation? According to Laird (2006), “motivation is a fundamental component of performance “ and “is the reason that someone chooses to do some things and chooses not to do others”. In other words, work motivation is what energizes workers to the level of output required to fulfill a task, directs their energy towards the objectives that they need to accomplish, and sustains that level of effort over a period of time (Steers et al., 2004). In essence, worker motivation is what gets the job done.

Moreover, Herzberg’s concern was that motivation is partially discovered by not only satisfaction, but the fact that ‘motivation for movement’ was not clearly understood by management. For instance, Herzberg pointed out that if employees are pressured to perform a task to achieve incentives, it’s not the employees who are really motivated, but its management who are motivated to promote employees ( (C.Lloyd, 2004) In conclusion, there are several views that demonstrate how employee motivation can be developed in stringent organisations, by using the three theories. It is finally argued, that the most effective needs hierarchy that can motivate employees in tightly controlled firms is Herzberg’s two factory theory, which focuses on job satisfaction and needs.
According to Greenberg (1999), motivation is defined “as a process of arousing, directing and maintaining behavior towards a goal.” Where “directing” refers to the selection of a particular behavior; and ‘maintenance” refers to the inclination to behave with consistency in that manner until the desired outcome is met. Motivation is the force that transforms and uplifts people to be productive and perform in their jobs. Maximizing employee’s motivation is a necessary and vital to successfully accomplish the organization’s targets and objectives. However, this is a considerable challenge to any organizations managers, due to the complexity of motivation and the fact that, there is no ready made solution or an answer to what motivates people to work well (Mullins,2002). Mullins (2002) also classifies motivation into Intrinsic and Extrinsic types.
