How can Caribbean Managers enhance the motivation of their Employees At first we will look at what is motivation, Motivation is the process that accounts for an individual’s willingness to exert high levels of effort to reach organizational goals, conditioned by an effort’s ability to satisfy some individual need. What does motivation mean to me? One word “inspiration”, its providing with a reason to act a certain way. One’s desire to do or an interest a drive/ a driving force by which we the ‘individual use to achieve our goals. So motivating for employees would be something to keep them working, salaries of employees can be enough to keep them working, but when the salary isn’t enough to keep them(employees) working then what do Employers/managers do? Employers can start the motivation process by using different approaches, when I say different approaches I mean theories. Theories such as Maslows theory. Maslows hierarchy theories says “people have needs and when one need is relatively fulfilled other emerges in predictable sequence to takes its place”. What Maslows is saying is that the most basic level of needs must be bet before the individual will strongly desire the secondary or higher needs. For the most part physiological needs are obvious, without them the body cannot continue to function. These 5 needs are crucial in order for an employee to be fully motivated. Once the physiological needs are met, one’s attention turns to safety and security to be free from the threat of physical and emotional harm. Such needs might be ; living in a safe area,medical insurance and job security, so once a person has met the lower level needs such as physiological and safety needs higher level needs become important. Social needs are those related to interaction with other people and may include need for friends and a need to give and receive love, then once that person feels a since of belonging the need to feel important arises. Esteem needs may be classified

It can be explained by the motivation that occurs when people are happy with what they do, for who they work (their firm), and with who they work (colleagues). De facto….

This study found employees are not motivated solely by money and employee behavior is linked to their attitudes….

The study of motivation helps managers understand what prompts people to initiate….
