Employee Motivation in the Public Sector

Employee Motivation is a powerful force in the public sector and is derived from the Latin word for movement. To further explain, the research methods used in this thesis demonstrate that employee motivation is the ability for employees to perform long after the excitement of entering the public sector has ceased. Employee motivation is an intangible tool, produced both internally and externally to overcome challenges unique to the public sector. Employee motivation effects every part of an individual and the people they interact with. This research paper will identify various motivational theories and how those theories affect employees at work and throughout various life stages.
