Effects of motivation on employees' perceptions, behaviour and psychological orientation


  • Khalid Alrawi


There is a considerable interest and debate over the effectiveness of employees' motivation. An experimental design is used to test a series of hypotheses based on a sample of Indian and Egyptian employees. It has found that despite the existence of cultural differences at an ethnic level, culture does not appear to have a significant impact on the employee responses to motivation. This paper will look at the different characteristics of employees and then approaches which are generally used by managers towards these two different groups. This paper examines the impact of sub-culture on preferences of managerial motives. Finally, the study also provides further evidence that validates a scale used for the measurement of culture.
