1.0 Introduction

Human efforts are required to achieve the goals of organization. The over all performance of an organization is directly dependent on the amount of effects positively applies by the works individually or collectively towards attaining the desired goals commitment of employees is a reflection of the level of their motivation. The concern of management about performance is directly a concern about motivation.

The word “ motivation” originally was derived from latin word ‘mover’ which means to move. Different authors and researches differ in their definition of this term. According to thes and Bond itch (1977) motivation is the condition responsible for variation in the intercity, quality and direction of going behaviour.

Most it not all behaviour is caused by individual attempts to satisfy his or her needs. The worker does to satisfy his or her needs, it the organization is capable and willing to satisfy needs the work would be motivated to exert effort to work or where in country is the case, the worker is either not willing to engage himself at work and where he has no option, he does the work and does it grudging.

Finally, the mechanic conducted a thorough search to cocate the sources of the rattle and found a bottle suspend from the price or string inside the rights. The note attached to the bottle has, nosily are it,

The “saboteur” had certainly been motiated, but in a from obviously contrary to the goals of the manufacture.

1.1 Background Of Study:

There is sampled evidence that industrial commerce have centered mainly on financial reward in an attempt to influence behaviour in order to motivate people. But it seems that employee behaviour brins upon many aspects associated with the job, the company and external factors such as domestic life and social activities.

All these tend to override the attitudes of employees if applied accordingly. Consequently the main motivational factors stand with the indiduals, his domestic life, his soial activities his jobs and his company.

It has been discoverer that individual character, basic needs, mental needs, higher needs trails derivers, intelligence and general capability would lend him in too uniqueness. As a result, we see that individuals treatment.

Since motives are essential requirements in the understnaidng of employees behaviou they are grouped in many different ways, we shall examine the topic in the division of basic and higher heeds.

In the olden days, the concept of motivation was simply hot to get more out of people but the old practice change during he gree of scientific management. The famous hawthorne experiment of the late 1920s and early 10935 set new course for management in its concept of motivating employees.

The conclusion of the study was as follow: human performance is the situation was not solely a functions the attitudes or skills that the employee brought to the work, place that the average workers dail indeed think about the job, had various kings of reactions to it and most importantly beliee his feeling affected how hard he worked.
Armed with this information, managers delived into more researcher on how best to motivate emerged the new bread who called them selves the human relation and lastley the behaviour scientists.

Before a manager can understand and effectively carryout this function of motivation, he must therefore be informed and thoroughly understood what motivtes his subordinates at work.

This is because individual differ in their want and aspirations and msut be treated as such. The presence of these unsatisfied needs in individuals induces them to worker

1.2 Statement Of The Problem:

These has been low productivity in the production which leads to fall in the standard level of the economy. The insensitivity of management towards the workers welfare have led to strike, low supply agitation and low productivity evident in public sector start in Nigeria.

The work of employees in public sector is noble job no matter how simple: their work is still serving the public, this the value of their work and their performance if not properly compensated with basic and equal rights may create a problem on the workplace.

Pubic employees may tend to use their time sleeping on the job, taking bandy clock, using fund and problems like these ones. This has been the problem of many government agencies including the ministry of external relation in angopla.
