CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

An organization can be defined in terms of the machinery used, but rather it is the human beings in the organization that make up the organization. For an organization to achieve its objective, it has to entail the utilization of the available resource such as time, money and material resources such as machinery, raw materials and human resources.

The human resources of an organization are its most treasured reassured resources. This is because all other resources are of no importance without the involvement of the human resources (the Gordian 2004) the human resources coordinator, coordinates all other resources into whatever objective they are to achieve. Also, the survival, achievement of productivity and the importance of any organization rests on the human resources, because human resources can think, differentiate between good and bad, and have ability to know what is attainable.

An organization that wishes to achieve its object has to work beyond the survival and relevance of processes procedures, machine and indeed all technology but focus more on the human resources because all technology function as a result of the skill and willingness of the human resources, for the human to be highly motivated.

‘‘Motivation’’ is the general term applying to the entire class of drives, desire, needs, whishes and similar force (Weltrich and Kootz 1993) to say an organization motivation employees means that is does those things which it hopes will safe those deserved and desired manner. Human motivation therefore is that which triggers or propels human beings to act in a required way. It can also be said as that something and make them willing to work hard in other to do it. But before an employee can be effectively motivated to carryout a task, he has to have a motive. These human motives are based on a need, they are either primary need such as their physical requirement for water, air, food, sex, sleep, shelter on secondary needs such as self esteem, status, affiliation with others, affection, accomplishment and self assertion (Weltrich and Koontz 1993) when these things are satisfied in a human being, he may feel highly motivated.

For an organization to effectively co-ordinate its employees’ because employees abilities are not fully productive without motivation. Motivation is a particular drive or desire in an individual and it moves them into performing an action that will enable them achieve a goal. An organization has to know that it cannot achieve its objective by just employing an individual based on their technical qualifications, experience, credential and all material but rather, it should look at the individual person motive as well (Kelner 2000) for an employers to have a long term success than in any given job will depend for more on the energy and emotional engagement he brings to the job than on the training or qualification the person has obtain over a long time, the energy tends to differentiate those who enjoy their work and makes it easier for individual to excel.
