Introduction Motivation represents the forces within a person that affect his or her direction, intensity, and persistence of human behaviour in organization (Campbell & Pritchard, 1976, Craig C.Pinder, 1998).Motivation is a psychological process in organization that helps it to increase the productivity, good turnover, achieving target on time, and also provide the job satisfaction to an individual (Luthans &Madauburn, 1998).

Introduction The aim of this paper is to discuss the essence of the attribution and resource-based theories in the context of organizations. The choice for these theories is due to their focus on: the importance of the development of employees as key for competitive advantage; and the importance of alignment between employers and employees in the messages conveyed by HR practices for firm performance. We support the concepts and its implications in the HRM field by providing empirical evidence from the articles discussed throughout this course. We then finalize comparing and discussing the main criticisms of the explanatory power of both theories. Attribution theory Kelley’s attribution theory posits that individuals tend to make causal inferences

Internal equity occurs when employees compare themselves to others who are charged with different responsibilities but work in the same organization. The equity theory is included in this study because it explains employee motivation on a relative basis by evaluating employees' perception and comparison with their peers. Such comparisons can impact an employee’s satisfaction and motivation, especially if he feels he is not treated fairly.The most notable feature of equity theory is that it proves that beliefs, perceptions, and attitudes influence motivation. The theory that will be discussed next is the expectancy theory, which is also a theory that

Needham (1999) argued that the Maslow's hierarchy needs theory is too rigid because differs workers on different position have different needs and priorities, furthermore, they may have different motivators impact on their performance. Herzberg’s two factor theory Frederick Herzberg’s two factor theory (Herzberg 1987), assumes that workers are motivated by two sets of factors: motivation and hygiene. The motivation factors such as: achievement, participation, recognition, involvement, delegation and autonomy, if they are met will motivate employees too. In contrast to the factors of motivation, hygiene factors such as salary, working conditions, policies and administration are not met lead to dissatisfaction in workers (Saiyadain 2009). John (2007) argues that a large responsibility for the creation and handle motivation systems of employees rests on the shoulders of business leaders.

H&M values also include teamwork and constant improvement; together they challenge themselves to do things better and create an H&M that always exceeds customers’ expectations. H&M planning, recruitment and selection Strategic HR planning is an important component of strategic HR management.
Motivation can be defined as “the cognitive decision- making process through which goals-directed behaviour is initiated, energized, directed and maintained” (Buchanan and Huczynski, 2017:777). Motivation is the inner drive that enables people to perform particular actions in order to achieve a goal which will differ from person to person however, a motive will determine a person’s behaviour. When looking at organisations, many want to hire employees who are motivated due to the success that can occur as motivation encourages a person to complete an action to the highest degree which can reflect on both the individual and the overall organisations success in a positive way. A person’s level of motivation may be influenced by a number of factors
