Gone are the days when the mangers of big organizations and corporations used to follow the classical school of thought wherein there was rigidity and formal structure to be followed by all the employees. With the traditional school of thought being replaced by the behavioral school, a lot of focus is being laid on the human aspect and organizations have been given the status of a dynamic social system. This is well in tune with the changing times where employees are not just motivated by economic incentives but are also equally inclined towards self-actualization. Of course the modern man is still influenced by the business incentives that come his way and so the onus lies on the employer to raise the remunerations according to the quality of work. A disgruntled employee is perhaps the worst asset in an organization and it is the duty of the manager to see that all of them are satisfied with their remuneration.
Motivation is a combination of skill and will and man being a social animal, is driven by materialistic needs to a large extent. It is only after fulfillment of his physical needs that he treads towards the social needs. The goals of the organization must be in conformity with the personal goals of the employees so that there is maximum utilization of the human resources. Employee bonuses can go a long way in motivating employees to deliver their best to enhance the efficiency of the organization. The managers should pay equal attention to the top level as well as shop level employees and create both vertical and horizontal communication. Decision-making should be done at all levels and employee participation is also necessary. Along with rising profits of the organization, the employees pay scale should also be raised to keep them satisfied and enhance stability of the organization in the long run.
