Role Of Management In Motivating Workers In The Banking Sector (A Case Study Of First Bank Nig. Plc. Okpara Avenue, Enugu)


This project work was carried out to determine the role of management in motivating workers in banking sector, using first Bank Nig. Plc, Okpara Avenue, Enugu State as a case study. The purpose of this study is to find out how workers in the banking sector derive motivation, taking into consideration the impact of management influence and the effect of this on productivity. Also research questions and hypothesis were stated to be used in generalization towards the end of this with the appropriates tools. The research design used in this study is descriptive survey method, were simple random sampling was used to obtain information as to the population of the firm, getting a sample size of 44 persons. The data collection was based on primary data like questionnaire, personal interviews and data like bank’s annual reports were also used. Statistical tools like chi-square, simple percentage were used to analyze the data. The research findings showed that worker’s productivity does not necessarily depend on motivation since every employee have a target to meet and also has obligations to carryout. It was also established that motivation has relationship with personnel officers‟ productivity but the basic fact underlying the issue is that what appear to create motivation on one personnel in a particular bank might not act similarly in other bank, most especially in commercial banks. This can be deduced in the sense that motivation does not work in all situations as panaceas to increase productivity in all corporate organizations. Every indication shows that environment and fringe benefits play significant role in personnel manager’s job satisfaction. Based on the findings above, the researcher made this recommendation on how motivation in the banking sector can be enhanced to have an impact in productivity. The management should be able to identify what can actually make the workers in their own banks have adequate motivation and whether such motivation packages are capable of boosting high productivity. Lastly, the management should also endeavor to include some packages like compensation that will ensure adequate job security and if possible work towards developing a policy for pensionable service.

1.0 Introduction

One of the most significant developments in the field of the organization in recent times is the increasing importance given to human resources. More and more attention is being paid into motivational aspects of human personality, particularly the need of self-esteem group belonging and self actualization. This new awakening of humanism and humanization all over the world has infact enlarged the scope of applying principle of personnel management in organizations. The development of people, their competencies and the process developing the total organization are the main concerns of personnel managers.

Extension of organizations in banking sectors face the major problems of professional incompetence and lack of motivation among their employees. Further more, many banking sectors in Nigeria do not have a well defined system of personnel management. Proper planning and management of workers within extensions of organization is essential to increase the capabilities, motivation and over all effectiveness of personnel. Keeping this in view, this research discusses the various dimensions of workers as applicable to extension organizations.

One of the major role of a personnel manager is to recruit, select and place workers at their area of specialty; in other to boost these personnel functions and enable them work effectively, they must be adequately compensated. Comensation being a source of motivation increases the performance of personnel in workplace. Management must first consider what they can reasonably afford to pay their personnel workers and the ramification of their decision; will they affect workers‟ turnover and productivity. In addition, management play vital role in motivating workers and they solely believe that pay can influence their work ethic and behavior towards their job. Moreover, social, economic, legal and political factor also exert influence on the rate at which personnel managers operate.

It is hereby articulated that the increase of management creating incentives as a source of motivation tends to boost and increase the rate of response of employees in an organization thereby increasing productivity.

1.1 Background of the Study

The task facing management in various banking sector in recent times is that of determining what should constitute adequate motivation for the workers. To achieve these objectives, the environment for the performance of the individuals working in group towards accomplishing common objective must be maintained.

Personnel managers as well as employees are the single most important source in any firm. They are the keys to higher productivity and efficiency. Most managers have discovered that productive work cannot be achieved through command, order or executive fiat. The primary aim of personnel managers is to recruit, select and place were they rightly suit, in order words, improved personnel managers productivity and efficiency depends on individuals motivation that gives them job satisfaction. The themes of motivation suggests that personnels who have a clear sense of their own contribution to their firm and who receive effective feedback from their manager are more likely to experience job satisfaction than those who do not. Achieving goals and being recognized for doing so is intrinsically motivational. The satisfaction a personnel derived from their work varies, some derive satisfaction from their environment, good salary they receive other benefits and oversees training courses made available to them by the management.

Those in banking sector derive their own satisfaction from the nature of their job, car loan, rewards, interaction, training exercise and other benefits they receive from the organization. Motivation has a lot to do on workers emotion, when an individual is not motivated he cannot put in his best. Motivation they say activates human energy. It is a force which leads people to satisfy their important needs. All human behaviour is directed towards a goal. Individual values and goals differ from organizational goals and values. These values help personnel make judgment and decisions on matters affecting them. Personnel in organization have a number of responsibilities. They are responsible to the organization for doing what they are paid to do which is hiring new workers and administering basic resources like pay and benefits and also responsible for meeting their own needs and protecting their own values.

According to Eli Ginzberg (1982) in his human Economy, workers want to earn enough from their work to meet the needs of their families and to enjoy a rising standard of living. Secondly, they want reasonable assurance that if their performance is satisfactory they can look forward to holding their jobs and to the special benefit which will accrue to them by virtue of their long term with the organizations. They want their job to provide the satisfaction that comes from the meaningful activities of the management. Finally, workers expect that those who supervise and direct them will not infringe on their rights as human beings and as citizens.

Furthermore, Koontz et al (1982) define motivation in a general term applying to the entire class of desired needs, wishes and similar force. We can look at motivation as involving a chain reaction on wants or goals sought which gives rise to tension, then causing action towards achieving goals, and finally satisfying wants. We can easily note that many physiological needs are stimulated by environmental factor. The smell of food may make one hungry, a high thermometer reading may make us suddenly feeling hot or the sight of a cold drink may cause an overwhelming thirst, who for example, has not had certain physiological needs accentuated by an attractive advertisement.

Udoh E.U. (1999) says that management has a major influence on our perception and needs. The promotion of a colleague may kindle one‟s desire for a higher position. A challenging problem may want our desire to accomplish something by solving it. Personnel manager like other categories of workers every where are basically the same. They want more money, training exercise, more motivation accordingly. Even in the banking sector, benefits that management can use in motivating personnel managers include, medical facilities, pension, gratuity plans, vacation leave with pay, and sick benefit with pay, housing subsidy, and transport allowance. If these are the needs and wants of personnel managers everywhere in the banking sector, what type of benefit do managers in the sector provide to satisfy the yearning of their manpower. From the situation of things in the country, we can see that these fringe benefits are being denied to personnel mangers in most banks in Nigeria. We don‟t need anyone to convince us that productivity of personnel managers in such banks is one of the lowest in the sector.

However, the basic focus of this study centers on the role of management in motivating personnel managers in the banking sector. Also the study has to look into things that makes recruiting officers in the banking sector feel satisfied in their work as well as the things management in the banking sector have to do to make sure that their personnel derive satisfaction from their work to boost their productivity, using First Bank, Plc, Okpara Avenue, Enugu State as a case study.

1.2 Statement of Problem

Motivation of personnel managers in every bank poses some serious problems to both management and employees themselves and the two have been on entangled midway but research and analysis of the motivation of personnel appears to emphasize the importance of making job challenging and meaningful.

Employees attitude to work depends on the degree of motivation they derive from the job. Satisfaction an individual derives from job varies with age, sex, occupational level, social group and individual increase in productivity depends on workers input and workers cannot put in much when they are dissatisfied with their work.

In other words, the efforts of managers in motivating personnel manager or human resource managers in most of the banking institutions does not seem to yield expected result, but managers in these banks often consider their immediate corporate financial position to the detriment of effective motivation of the personnel workers and the role played by personnels, forces managers always to take consolation on aggregate return rather than individual rate of returns thereby, getting the wrong evaluation and faulty picture of the impact of the role of personnel managers in motivation. This degree of laxity and limitation constitute the problem of this study which necessitates this research.

1.3 Objectives of the Study

The objectives of this study are:

  1. To determine how managers contributes to the motivation of personnel managers and their satisfaction in the banking sector.
  2. To determine the effectiveness of personnel workers in the banking sector
  3. To look into some motivation mix, that is, the set of controllable variables that managers in the banks can use to influence their personnel workers and recommend appropriate motivation mix that will make the staff experience job satisfaction that will enhance performance and quality of service rendered to customers.
  4. To determine the effectiveness and impact of motivation on employee’s productivity in the bank.

1.4 The Significance of the Study

This research work will be relevant to the managers and personnel managers of First Bank Nig. Plc. It will also be beneficial to other public sector organization in Nigeria; it will also be of importance to the government, potential and future researchers on the issue of management’s means to motivate personnel workers or related studies on motivation.

This empirical study is also important to the researcher, since it is a partial requirement for the award of Bachelor of Science (B.Sc) in industrial Relations and Personnel Management. It is hoped that the result of this study would be used by all corporate financial and recruiting organizations involved in banking and personnel services, by way of providing the necessary information and machinery that will be useful for appropriate decision making and recruitment process in the area of study. It would also guide management of related organizations on policy formulation and even on implementation processes.

This study will also identify how the academic environment would stand to benefit in the direction of having a guide for research work, lectures, seminars and even class work for the study. The professionals would have enough ground for professional advice for client and other related publics. Government will use the result of their study as guiding information for policy formulation and other decision-making.

Finally, the general public and even the personnel managers would benefit from this work by actually knowing what motivation as well as the impact on performance is all about.

1.5 Research Questions

  1. Are their any room for personnel management in your bank?
  2. Are workers in your bank motivated on their work?
  3. Does your bank management have concern on workers‟ job satisfaction?
  4. What are the things management use to motivate personnel managers in your bank?
  5. Are there problems arising in your bank concerning workers‟ motivation?
  6. Did you think that motivation have an impact on worker‟s productivity in your bank?
  7. Does the management respond to the workers problems positively?
  8. In what ways do you think that motivation packages for workers in your bank could be improved?

1.6 Research Hypothesis

The researcher formulated the following hypothesis based on the objectives and problem identified for the purpose of this research work, stating them in both Null and Alternate forms.

  1. Ho: Motivation does not have significant impact on workers productivity
    Hi: Motivation has significant impact on workers productivity
  2. Ho: Employee productivity does not depend on motivation
    Hi: Employee productivity depends on motivation
  3. Ho: The role of management in motivating worker in the banking sector is not significant.
    Hi: The role of management in motivating workers in the banking sector is significant.
  4. Ho: Provision for advancement would not improve workers productivity
    Hi: Provision for advancement would improve workers productivity.

1.7 Scope of the Study

This research work focuses particularly on the role of management in motivating workers in the banking sector. For this reason therefore, the research has consulted with several views on the issues of motivation and workers to include text books on management, Human Resource Management; industrial relations, Newspaper, edits, journals banks etc. The work could be voluminous if all the arguments of different authors are presented, but they have been carefully selected so that only issues particularly concentrating on management’s motivation of workers in banking sector are considered.

1.8 Limitation of the Study

In the process of conducting this research work on the role of management in motivating workers in the Banking sector, a lot of factors militated against the study. First was the attitude of the respondents to the researcher, some of the respondents took the researcher to be an agent from external bodies and deliberately refused to answer the questions. This is mostly the case with the senior staff/managers.

Closely associated with this problem is the fact that some of the respondents did not return the questionnaire to the researcher. This is a big limitation to this study since it further reduced the sample of workers in the company used for the study.

Another problem that was encountered was due to shortage of time and financial constraints. The research was faced with financial problem due to transportation involved, printing questions, consulting newspapers etc. also the scarcity of current materials or books imposed serious limitations on the study.

The effect of the national strike which also affected the banks was also a constraint. Finally, the problem of retrieving questionnaire from the respondents, some of whom did not care to complete the questionnaire and so it became necessary to retrieve and redistribute them.

The research would have even cost more if it were to cover all banking sector in the country, thus, the research areas is limited to first Bank Nig. Plc, Okpara Avenue, Enugu State.

1.10 Theoretical Framework

The theory of Abraham Maslow’s (the hierarchy of needs) is used to explain the relationship between management’s motivation and personnel manager. It is the most widely mentioned theories of motivation and that best suit this research work. Maslow saw human needs from the lowest to the highest needs ie in hierarchy and he concluded that when one set of needs are satisfied, this kind of need ceases to be a motivator. Maslow said; “If we are interested in what actually motivates us and not what has or will, or might motivate us, then a satisfied need is not a motivator”. According to Maslow, these needs are classified into five and all of them go towards giving an individual (personnel manager) motivation and job satisfaction. These needs are:

a. Physiological need:

Undoubtedly, these basic needs are the most proponents of all needs. What this means specifically is that, human beings who has not achieved anything in life in an extreme fashion, it is most likely that the major motivation would be the physiological needs rather than any other. A person who is lacking food, safety and esteem would probably hunger for food more strongly than anything else. At every stage in the organization, management is to recognize that every kobo means much to the employee. He would trade some comfort for money.

b. Safety need:

Once the first need are largely satisfied, safety needs emerges.

An individual becomes concerned with the need for safety and security, protection from physical harm, disaster, illness and security of income, life style and loss of employment. An employee likes to know that his employment is permanent. The loss of his job could induce him to seek ways of satisfying his physiological needs. In other to motivate such employee and encourage productivity, management would try as much as possible to provide security for workers.

c. Social need:

The need is often referred to as acceptance need. The individual

has satisfied his two basic needs and wants acceptance, to love and to be loved. The value of friendship, affection and the sense of belonging are much needed and are seldom satisfied by money. Management on their part could motivate personnel manager by paying them adequate salary and rewarding them for the services rendered.

d. Esteem needs:

At this stage the individual has need for recognition,

accomplishment, and achievement for the need for self respect. He loves to take responsibilities and prove himself. The esteem need is the ego need. A personnel manager would feel motivated when management gives room for his contribution to be recognized and appreciated. The feeling of independence, professionalism and confidence is highest at this stage. It is important for management to recognize.

e. Self Actualization:

This need is often called fulfillment need. This is the need for an employee to reach his highest potential at work place in conquering his environment. A personnel manager is motivated by a desire to self-actualize, to achieve whatever he defines as his maximum potential, to do his work to the best of his ability. As he succinctly put it, “what a man can be, he must be”.

Maslow believe that an average citizen satisfies perhaps 85% of his physiological needs 70% of his esteem needs and 10% of his self actualization needs. According to him, human motive at work are governed by these needs and their satisfaction will lead to motivation and high productivity. It must be recognized that there is a great deal of over lap in the concept of hierarchy of needs and a great deal of inter-dependence among the various levels there is no clear cut distinction between one level and the other, when all the individual needs tends to be partially satisfied, the safety need disappears as social needs and esteem needs emerged, they only become less active.

Certainly, there is evidence that Maslow‟s theory is able to account for findings on occupational level and motivation. Those in lower level of occupation are likely to be motivated by lower order needs as pay and security. Where as those in high levels of occupation that have those basic needs fulfilled are more interested in fulfilling higher order needs. Again this depends in the time and circumstances since a person on esteem need can fall back to physiological needs during severe economic depression.

Maslow did not infact intend that needs hierarchy should be directly applied to job satisfaction but despite this lack of interest on his part, a number of theorists like McGregor (1960) “The „X‟ and the „Y‟ Theory” has popularized Maslows theory in management literature. The needs Hierarchy has a tremendous impact on the modern management and job satisfaction studies by Beer (1960) and Clack (1960) seem to support Maslow theory.

1.11 History of the Area of Study

First Bank was founded precisely in March 31st 1894. at inception, the bank was incorporated as a limited liability company under the name Bank of British West Africa (BBWA), with the head office originally in Liverpool.

First Bank of Nigeria Plc is the premier bank in West Africa and the leading financial service provider in Nigeria. The Bank has involved itself in national development especially its contribution to the economic growth and development of Nigeria over the last 116 years and has been driven by commitment to the provision of excellent banking services.

In response to a rapidly changing economic and business environment, First Bank has at various times restructed her operations. This Bank had in 1975 changed her name from Bank of British West Africa (BBWA) to Bank of West Africa (BWA). In 1966, the Bank merged with standard bank, UK and adopted the standard Bank of West Africa limited and in 1969 was incorporated locally as the standard Bank of Nigeria Limited in line with the companies Decree of 1968 changes in their name also occurred in 1979 and 1991 to First Bank of Nigeria Limited and First Bank of Nigeria Plc, respectively.

Summary of Findings, Conclusion and Recommendation

5.1 Summary of Findings

From this research study titled, “The role of management in motivating personnel officers in banking sector,” the researcher‟s mindset is to understudy the process, procedure and method of empirical application of the concept in the banking sector and to observe if personnel officers are practically well motivated using First Bank Nigeria Plc as a case study.

The chapter discusses the major findings of this study in relation to the objectives as shown in the tables and figures contained in the study analysis based on various responses to the items on the questionnaire and on the facts gathered from oral interviews and the review of literature. The research attempt to answer the following question:

  1. Does management of your Bank always motivate personnel workers?
  2. Does this motivation have any impact on your productivity?
  3. Beside the motivation portfolio, is there any adequate provision for job security?
  4. Do you see all element of satisfaction you enjoy as a motivational package?
  5. How often does the management consult with the personnel workers on the issue of welfare of the organization and workers?

In pursuance of the research question, questionnaires were sent to selected staff of First Bank Nigeria Plc, Okpara Avenue.

From the study, it was identified that personnel officers of First Bank experienced motivation; this was the view of 56.67% of the total respondents. It was also discovered that the level of adequate provision for job security beside motivation portfolio, 29 or 95.67% of the total respondents reasoned this way.

Similarly, the study revealed that employee‟s productivity in First Bank does not necessarily depend on motivation since every personnel worker has their own assigned job. Table 9 illustrates that 14 or 46.67% agrees on that while 16 or 53.33% disagrees.

It was also established from the study that personnel workers agrees that all element of satisfaction they enjoy service as a motivational package. Table II illustrates that where it rates 22 or 73.33% of the total respondents. In the study, the role of managers in motivating personnel officers is significant that is to say, management on their own part try hard to see that personnel workers are adequately treated well. Table 8 illustrates that where it rates 19 or 63.33% of the total respondents.

Thus, fact from the theoretical view point, the review of literature revealed that Maslow (1943) motivational theory had a least as much impact as Herzberg‟s (1959) motivation theory which these needs are likely to be met by polices to incorporate team work and involvement of all workers. Maslow‟s hierarchy of needs stipulates that for a worker to work well, his basic needs must be satisfied such as his physiological need, love need, esteem need etc. In the case were management fails to meet these hierarchical needs, personnel workers are de-motivated but when such needs are developed and met, people become motivated. The Implication is that despite the success of job enrichment strategies, there is little support for the notion that factors influencing motivation fall into the simple dichotomy suggested by Maslow.

5.2 Conclusion

From the analysis of data and the results, it was established that motivation has a relationship with personnel officers‟ productivity but the basic fact underlying the issue is that what appears to create motivation on one employee in a particular organization might not act similarly in other organization most especially in the banking sector.

The need for effective motivation on personnel workers by management cannot be overemphasized. This is because motivation depends on the way a person perceives it. When management on their part motivates his workers, it would reflect on the workers out put, if otherwise, that would also reflect on their output.

From the result of this research reached on the hypothetical testing which provided that there is a significant impact of motivation in personnel officers‟ productivity but not very significant and their compensation packages are not comparable to other banks, it is quite clear that in some cases personnel officer‟s productivity and the principle guiding it, depends to a large extent on management style.

According to Keith (1981; 89), motivation can produce neutral, negative or positive results. He further presented that for motivation to impact positively on personnel workers‟ productivity their must be some corresponding or relative linkages to personnel workers‟ opinion, attitude, morale, climate, quality of work life and environment as well as the size of the bank.

Similarly, Porter, Lawler, and Raymond (1989; 34), observed that motivation does not necessarily increase personnel officers productivity. Other critics of this concept believe that there are no precise degrees of productivity that result from motivation. Consequently, it can be deduced that at times motivation does work but not in all situations as a panacea to increase personnel officer‟s productivity in all corporate organizations or banks. While some workers see it as a privilege, others consider it to be right.

Meanwhile, it is imperative to note that beside financial inducement, motivation of personnel officers can still be packaged in some other ways that will in essence influence productivity positively. Based on this claim, the management of the various banks should realize that what prove positively successful in one bank might not yield expected result in some other banks. Therefore workers needs, environment and job design should be properly analyzed and evaluated before taking some decisions. Management should also in formulating and implementing it‟s policies take note on the interest of it‟s workers welfare, having proper concern in the evaluation of such policies, so that they do not at the minimal rate demoralize and demotivate her workers. The policies they adopt should encompass improved working conditions, job security and satisfaction, comparable salary etc. these would enable adequate productivity.

5.3 Recommendation

In the light of the foregoing study and the adjourning findings, it is clear that in spite the level of success attained by First Bank Nigeria Plc, Okpara Avenue, and the actual impressive performance of personnel officers, it has been discovered that there are some recommendation that proposes as a contribution towards improving the role of management on personnel officers.

Consequently, the following recommendation becomes imperatives.

  1. That management should be able to identify what actually motivates personnel officers.
  2. Whether such motivational package is capable of inducing high productivity.
  3. The management should also endeavour to include some packages that will ensure adequate job security and if possible work towards developing a policy for pensionable service.
  4. The management should also do a kind of comparative work to examine whether what is obtainable in First Bank is still fashionable in the banking sector. This could be done by comparing their packages with that of other existing bank.
  5. Adequate training whether in-door training or otherwise should be periodically designed for personnel officers if the emphasis is on improved productivity
  6. Other measures other than job evaluation or appraisal should be adopted to determine individual personnel officer’s productivity.
  7. Management should view personnel officers as partners with common goals to achieve the efficiency of the other workers and increase productivity.

It is hoped that the implementation of the above recommendation by First Bank Nig. Plc. would guarantee management their role in motivating personnel officers.
