Task 1:
By referring to the motivational theories discussed during our course, describe how you would
motivate your team to achieve excellent results within this tight schedule.
In order to describe the process of motivating employees during a busy period of time this essay
will discuss two theories: Maslow’s hierarchy of needs and Herzberg’s two-factor theory of
motivation. “In Maslow’s hierarchy needs are structured into 5 levels: Physical, Security, Social,
Self-esteem, and Self-fulfilment” (Rollinson, 2008). Logically the workers would be motivated by
having a higher level of their needs fulfilled, only after the lower level has been satisfied. For
instance a worker who is starving will be motivated to earn just enough money to buy food, before
worrying about getting promoted or earning recognition and respect in the workplace. Printing
Company should therefore offer different incentives to workers in order to help them fulfil each
need and move up the hierarchy. Since every employee is unique it is also important to consider
that not all of them will be motivated the same way, and neither will they move up the hierarchy at
the same time. Consequently companies should consider offering a different set of incentives from
employee to employee. “Herzberg had close links with Maslow and believed in a two-factor
theory of motivation, those factors being motivators and hygiene” (Rollinson, 2008). Motivators
are factors related to the job which will directly improve the employee’s motivation if introduced
by the business, whereas hygiene factors are those that surround the job and therefore do not
directly improve the employee’s motivation, but would de-motivate them if not present. For
instance opportunities for promotion or recognition belong to the group of motivators whereas
hygiene factors are related to the cleanliness of the workplace. I will try to motivate my employees
? Increasing their wages for 5%
? Offering to pay them 50% more when they have to work overtime
? Promoting those that work the hardest
? Offering a few extra days of vacation
? Having a special event to chat with one another and have a good time and so on.
Task 2:
Based on our workplace stress discussions, how would you manage the stress within your
company during this period?
After this period is short period and my company has produce high-quality products and the
demand is very satisfactory. My orders for the 2017 end-year period have surpassed my predictions
for around 60% and normally who I and my workers have stress but after we have success in this
filed then I must to manage the stress by organizational characteristics such: relations between
colleagues, relation between workers-company and organizational policies. In this period of work
is important providing alternative working hours such: flexitime, job sharing and time management
giving the workers a short break (smoking, eating, abdominal breathing, relax) salaries (the worker
with long time who work he/she paid more).Relationship between life-work, for the sake of
personal life through work stress, then we offer care, for example, the mothers who provide them
with organizational strategies as they are: permission to take the child to work in case of emergency
or to cover the expenses for a nanny so that the workers cannot be decommissioned in work for
their children, so environment must be commode(temperature in different seasons and to not have
noise)because temperature and noise affect direct in stress of employees.
