THE IMPACT OF MOTIVATIONAL INSTRUMENTS ON THE PRODUCTIVITY OF WORKERS (A CASE STUDY OF ACCESS BANK PLC GARDEN AVENUE BRANCH, ENUGU)

ABSTRACT
This research work is a very crucial study for the Access Bank Plc. The study was motivated by the necessity to establish what constitute motivational instrument in  the organization and the extent of their application. Sources of data includes, primary and secondary data in which both relevant official and non official materials and publications regarding the subject matter were drawn. Data collected were analyzed using table and percentages. Tests were carried out on the hypothesis using chi-square method. The major research findings revealed that, the performance of an employee to a very large extent does not depend solely on his skills and ability, intelligence or knowledge, but on the motivation he receipts. Motivation of course, is the portent force for optimum productivity. This force is embedded in those incentives that make an employee to work harder, compelling him to action while at the same time satisfying his desire. It also shows that adequate use of motivational instruments have drastically reduced rate of labour turnover and lateness to work by some workers in Access Bank Plc. From the finding, for motivation to be successful, it must be  connected to other management control, and must protect and reflect quality. It also has shown that an employee would always want his efforts and competence in his job to be appreciated and adequately rewarded, otherwise he could feel bitter and frustrated. Having outlined some of the revelations drawn from the study, organizations wishing to optimize its resources should as a matter of fact concentrate more on incentive scheme which is performance based. This if proper implemented will create room fro efficiency and encourage competition amongst workers, which will then be translated in grater productivity.
