Job Motivation

Motivation at the work place is aimed at improving the level of performance of employees in their designed duties. Managers should at all times strive to provide certain aspects of operations in the working environment that will ensure that employees are motivated in their activities. In the case of a producing company, employees’ motivation will increase the quality realized hence competitiveness in the industry of operation will be fostered. In the case of our organization, a telemarketing company, certain aspects can be integrated into the operations of the organization in line with the nature of the tasks performed by the employees (Gautan & Batra, 2007, p. 104).

Owing to the tasks performed by the employees that include, taking calls and researching for information, certain factors can be included in the daily activities of the employees. Foremost, adoption of more efficient technologies to be used by employees will be a motivating factor. The use of outdated technologies by the employees in the organization can be demoralizing due to the labor intensive associated with poor technologies (Kumar, 2003, p. 90). This will make the activities of the employees strenuous hence, their level of performance will be greatly affected. In addition, the use of these poor technologies in their operations will result into constant boredom hence compromising their levels of performance. On the other hand, if the management introduces more advanced technologies, there will be ease in the information search. Owing to effectiveness in the data storage, there will be easy access to the required information by the clients (Gautan & Batra, 2007, p. 354).

Consideration of improving the levels of rewards to the employees will be a motivating factor. Due to the daily operations in the same lines of operations, increment in the remuneration plans will be an effective measure of motivating the employees. This can be ensured through consideration of the performance level of each employee. Highly performing employees will be offered with increase in their salaries and other financial gains in their activities. This will be a key motivation factor to other non-performing employees to strive and increase their levels of performance. Promotional plans can also be integrated for the employees. This will also be undertaken with consideration of active employees in employees in their roles. When they are elevated to certain managerial levels, their morale will increased hence the levels of performance will increase. Promotional plans can be accompanied by training activities. The management will consider offering training activities to the employees in order to improve their skills in their area of operation (Kumar, 2003, p. 230). Among the key areas that the program will target is on operation of the technologies used in their activities. Training programs will play a vital role in motivating the employees as it will be a manifestation of the management concern on their welfare. The training programs will allow employees to obtain skills in their areas of operations hence making it easy to undertake promotional plans to higher ranks.

Finally, the conditions within the working environment can also be improved. Installation of safety measures to curb any incidences that may arise during the work periods will increase the morale of the employees in performing their roles. Installation of danger alerts will be of necessity to curb situations such as fire outbreaks. Besides, in the case of machine operations that emits harmful rays, employees can be provided with safety gadgets to curb any danger that may arise.
