Abstract


Abstract: Numerous researches show how motivation of employees influence the labor productivity, business performance and goal achievement. Even though studies often show that employees tend to report enjoying their jobs, however organisations continuously face with staff turnover due to various reasons, and therefore fail to fulfill its objectives. This paper reflects upon classical and modern views of motivation aspects. And the research includes different entities all around Kosovo that bring an insight into the present situation pertaining to motivation of employees and possibly identify potential mistakes and suggestion for the process improvements within organisations. According to results, the turnover average rate in investigated enterprises is within a natural range. Meanwhile the, management is advised to make the employees aware that rewards are recognition of a job well done and not simply the goal of doing the work. Whilst, bonuses in cash prevails dominantly the motivation system in investigated enterprises, many of them seem to use evaluation of performance as a tool for remuneration policy. Whereas in most cases remuneration depends on the annual profit of the enterprise, reasons for leaving are not being recorded in a system. Yet, financial incentives are an important motivator for most people, money is not the only motivator and, in some cases, is not the primary motivator for everyone. A qualitative approach and theory based application were considered for this study.
