ABSTRACT

This research project examined the impact of motivational policies on employees performance in Dangote Cement Company, Calabar. The study adopted the research survey design, where a sample size of 50 respondents was randomly selected to participate in the study. Results from data analysis revealed that motivational policies have an impact on job performance of employees. The study also revealed that  motivational policies, job security, conducive working environment, promotion and welfare really enhance industrial peace and stimulate organizational output and job performance. Therefore, employees should be made to realize the importance of hard work by regularly rewarding those that have proven themselves in such regard, while the lazy ones should remain at their level without promotion.

CHAPTER ONE

Background of the study

       Motivation is a common place aspect of every one’s life, yet it is a difficult concept to define, let alone apply within an organizational perspective. Motivation refers to the forces leading to behavior directed toward the satisfaction of some need or it may also referred to a state or a condition of being induced to do something. Needs may be thought of as something within the individual that prompt him to engage in behavior which is directed toward the attainment of objectives (goals) that he perceives to be capable of satisfying his need. Hunger and the desire for financial security are needs or motives behaviour designed to satisfy these needs is motivated behaviour or motivation.

       Motivational policies are led down rules that organization adopt to appraise job performance of employees in an organization therefore motivational policies are essential tools that the organization makes use of in achievement of organizational set goals and objectives.

       Not all behaviour is motivated; some behaviour is habitual or reflexive. But motivated behaviour is that which the manager can understand. As noted, motivated behaviour can be subdivided into individual and group behaviour effective management requires a working knowledge of both aspects of behaviours. Successful managers must also understand the causes of such behavioural patterns; this process will then provide the basis for understanding why people do what they do.

       Inyang and Akpama (2002) maintain that motivation is the will to act. The act of motivating people starts with learning how to influence individual behaviour. Once you are able to understand this, you are more likely to gain the result that both the organization and its employees want.

       Hence, the study is to investigate the impact of motivational policies on job performance of employees in Dangote cement company, Calabar.
