Motivation management

The following article is a sample from the full BVOP™ Ultimate Guide and is part of the preparation for the BVOP™'s modern Agile Human Resources Management Professional Certification Program.

Motivation may be considered as a general willingness for involvement in activities and an emotional state. The motivation may fluctuate, and different factors may influence its fluctuations. 

Motivation may also be considered as a total result of someone's perception, self-confidence, beliefs, emotions.

The Business Value-Oriented People Management (BVOPPM) office participate in improving the perception and self-confidence of individuals inside the organization, discuss beliefs, and supports individuals in managing their emotions.

Additional factors for people's motivation may be external subjective negative or positive events and factors in an organizational context.

Negative events and factors may include:

  • Low wage
  • Poor working conditions
  • Comparing to others
  • Rumors
  • Reprimands
  • Harassment
  • Abuse
  • Discrimination
  • Overwork
  • Inadequacy
  • Lack of development opportunity

The Business Value-Oriented People Management (BVOPPM) office needs to be aware of these and all other possible factors and events that may cause drops in people's motivation and spends effort in improving low motivation.

Positive events or factors may include:

  • Spreading a noticeable people-oriented culture
  • Organizational stability
  • Meaningful work
  • A general sense of stability
  • General sense purpose
  • Clear responsibilities
  • Realistic objectives
  • Professional and personal development
  • Acknowledgment
  • Recognition
  • Announcing of achievements
  • Positive management style
  • Transparency
  • Clear bonus system
  • Social packages
  • Healthy working environment
  • Modern working environment

The BVOPPM office participates in supplying these factors or organizing events with other organizational offices.

Commitment management

If the motivation of the people is at some satisfactory level, this does not mean that the commitment from people is automatically increased. 

The commitment may be considered as a habit of the people and the style of the personality. 

Some people are more committed than others, and low commitment may be a waste for the organization. 

Motivation is a major factor in enhancing work, speed, communication, and participation in activities. Still, the BVOPPM office may need to train people or organize their activities, so the desired level of commitment may be achieved with time.

The BVOPPM office participates with other organizational offices to define clear, measurable objectives and understandable outcomes of the commitment or its low levels.

    Hello, everyone! I have always wondered how a company's employees can be motivated if they simultaneously receive low salaries and if their work involves boring, old projects that do not bring any employee some development. I work at such a company, and I can say that my motivation tends to zero. The human resources department organizes some meaningless events. Sometimes bosses come from far and speak meaningless words or talk about the approaching optimistic future of the company and the development of our projects. Of course, we listen in silence and finally applaud. We all know these are nonsense. I have been working at this company for five years, and all of them are the same. I don't think an organization can motivate its employees with artificial factors and strategies.
