Internal and External Motivation

Employee motivation depends on two factors: internal and external:
- Internal factors depend on his needs, knowledge or lack of it, interest to learn, values, confidence levels and medium and long term goals.
- External facors should supplement and complement the internal factors through proper face to face interaction with the individual by HR personnel, through giving the necessary support and confidence to the employee, to instill in him the hope that the orginator is equally concerned in his welfare-as much as he is in himself.
This has to be proved by giving him proper recognition for his good work, give him more and additional responsibility, reward him timely and make him independent of job responsibilities.
These external initiatives would improve his personality and confidence and hence would sustain his motivation levels.
