Motivation in practice

What do you need to do for this assessment?
Create an academic electronic poster to showcase how a business motivates its employees.
Assume that you work in the human resources department of a national company of your choice. The ongoing low employee morale and low motivation have been causing a reduction in labour productivity, which has resulted in your company losing competitiveness in the industry. You must create a poster to demonstrate how the company can support the employees in the company’s effort to improve motivation and morale at work. Your academic electronic poster will form part of the Action Plan board meeting, at the end of the financial year.
The academic electronic poster must display motivation theories and the financial and non-financial methods of motivation. You need to demonstrate how motivation theories studied in class apply to specific situations.
Your academic electronic poster will be a Microsoft Power Point single slide equating A1 in size, if printed, which is 59.4 x 84.1 cms.

The design of the poster should include the following information:

  1. A very brief overview of the company’s operations, the number of employees and scale of operations
  2. Motivation theories
  3. Financial and non-financial motivators
    The poster should follow a certain academic style, for example, the use of sub-headings and clear sections.

For information on academic poster styles, please refer to the following links from the University of Liverpool and University of York:

The academic poster should contain four sections:

  1. Introduction:

  2. Motivation Theories

  3. Financial and non-financial motivators:
    Describe, clearly, 4 types of financial or non-financial motivators.
    Explain how the company already employs or may employ each of these motivators; then, explain the advantages and potential disadvantages of each motivator.
    You must outline how each of these motivators satisfy some of the points outlined in section 2.
