Employee motivation, i.e. methods for motivating employees, is an intrinsic and internal drive to put forth the necessary effort and action towards work-related activities. It has been broadly defined as the “psychological forces that determine the direction of a person’s behavior in an organisation, a person’s level of effort and a person’s level of persistence”. Also, “Motivation can be thought of as the willingness to expend energy to achieve a goal or a reward. Motivation at work has been defined as ‘the sum of the processes that influence the arousal, direction, and maintenance of behaviors relevant to work settings’.”Motivated employees are essential to the success of an organization as motivated employees are generally more productive at the work place.
