1. INTRODUCTION The purpose of submitting this report is that a critical review have been done on the journal ' The impact of employee motivation on organizational performance (A study of some selected firms in Anambara State Nigeria), which is using primary data for the research. Employee motivation is a widely researched area. This is due to the positive effects motivation has on organizations and their performance. Research shows that motivated employees tend to display more positive work attitudes than employees who are not motivated.
When employees have the goals and a time limit to reach their goals, they think creatively to reach their goals in a shorter time span without compromising on quality. These goals should strictly adhere to overall strategic vision of an organization. Human resource policies and regulations affect employees and it is very necessary to design a performance appraisal system which is unbiased and help the employees to feel that they are wanted and are essential part of an organization. Performance should only be expected from the skilled and trained employee, therefore, it is crucial to choose the right candidate for the right job, as employees can only performs better if they know their job i.e. they possess the required skills to perform that job.
Human resources are said to be the greatest asset of an organization. That being the case than the commitment of human resources should be seen as the organizations competitive advantage. To sustain that competitive advantage, organizations need to develop a relationship with their employees. Nowadays the attitude of remaining with one employer has decreased and cut backs are a frequent event. Employees with a higher level of job satisfaction are less likely to be absent or to leave.
It is how they feel about the future and how they react to the past. The organization creates an environment that employees can communicate with each other effectively to share, correct and encourage each other to overcome the difficulties and situations in life that each other come across, that can make an impact on the employee level. Incentive Motivation is the last motivational factor; it is where a person or a team reaps a reward from an activity. It is “You do this and you get that”, attitude. It is the types of awards and prizes that drive people to work a little harder.
Rewards and recognition vary in definition but still convey the same idea of distinguishing and motivating employees. These perks can be given at anytime, specifically at the beginning, middle, or end of a company goal just as long as they align the incentives with an organization’s mission and goals. When properly implemented, rewards and recognition helps aid a company in the pursuit of strategic and operational goals. In a global economy with millions of businesses vying for customers, an organization must be able to motivate and properly compensate employees or risk falling behind competitors or worse, have employees with knowledge of the organization leave for competitors. With employee rewards and recognitions, one must understand the human need for acceptance, an accurate definition for reward and recognition, how rewards and recognition aid in meeting the human need for acceptance and motivation, the importance of having an employee rewards and recognition system in place, the benefits of this system, and various types of monetary and non-monetary aspects of an employee rewards and recognition system.
Praise and recognition are essential to an outstanding workplace. People want to be respected and valued for their contribution. Everyone feels the need to be recognized as an individual or member of a group and to feel a sense of achievement for work well done or even for a valiant effort. Everyone wants a ‘pat on the back’ to make them feel good. TYPES OF RECOGNITION • Day-to-day recognition – it is crucial to encourage personnel to perform properly on an ordinary basis and no longer simply on a periodic stage.
Organizations assess employee's performance on an annual or quarterly basis in order to define certain areas that need improvement. Performance is a critical factor in organizational success. Various factors like skills, training, motivation, dedication, welfare, management policies, fringe benefits, salary and packages, promotion, communication etc. are responsible to encourage the people to work sincerely and give their best
