The subject for this assignment is the motivational factors that occur with employees and management within an organization. In today's competitive market it is necessary to create a workplace that will attract and keep the best employees to stay in the lead. The purpose of this assignment is examining if there exists a correlation between which motivational factors leaders see as best, and what their employees think. We have completed one quantitative and one qualitative study in cooperation with an organization called Appex, consisting two in-depth interviews and one questionnaire. In this assignment, we have used two motivational theories. One of them is known as one of the basic motivational theories about which factors that create well-being and discomfort in an organization. The second theory is a more recent theory about autonomy at the workplace. We will present different social research methodologies, the approach of these methods and how we implemented our interviews and questionnaire. Since we chose to use both methodologies, we have combined them in our analysis. The data we collected is divided into the following themes: - Communication between management and employees - Motivational factors - Trust and self-determination - Belonging and social relations We will finish this assignment by presenting the discussion and our findings. Appex is a fast growing firm where the leadership has a lot of their focus on a motivating work environment. They use reward systems, feedback and human resource development and so on as a way to motivate their employees. We found some disagreements where the employees were more neutral to bonus than what the management expressed. The compliance in motivational factors between management and employees in this business is very good.
