Every organization needs staff motivation in order to acquire or achieve their aims and objectives.


An organization can be explain or defined as an entity of human and non-human resources which have been joined together to achieve a desired or predetermined or set organizational objective.

The organization in this sense will be characterized by pattern of human and material relationships, status, job responsibilities, rewards and rights that will either help or obstruct the achievement of corporate goals. It is reasonably certain that each member of the organization will have personal objectives tangential to those of the organization as a whole entity. To ensure effective and efficient management, there must be motivation.

Moreover, a clever policy maybe, attainment of organizational goals may be elusive if the implementation is to be handled by a set of disgruntled and indignant workers. Therefore, the need for a good and proper management of the available human resources of an organization cannot be over emphasized in the attainment of improved and high productive.

Then what really motivate workers? If in an organization there is no apparent rationality underlying compensation and reward chances that the organization may not achieve high productivity, but where the situation is favorable very pleasant result would be recorded. Behavioral Scientists like Fredrick Taylor (the propounded of the theory of scientific management) have been acclaimed for propounding theories one of which sees human beings as been economically motivated. Moreover, other writers like Maslow, Herzberg, MC Gregory and so on whose work would be examined later, have proved that apart from financial incentives and increased pay, there are other motivational factors.

Motivation of staff play a full role in the achievement of organizational objectives has been one of the most difficult tasks that confront managers and administrators of organization. The success of a manager solely rest on how effective and efficient which he is responsible and this effectiveness can be measured by the organizational efficiency and accomplishment of corporate goals which in turn depends on the level of mobilization of human resources available within the set up organization.


The problems that staffs face in organizations or the factors that can be prime demotivators/ demoralizers are:- 

a) Under Assignment: The unskilled job assigned to skilled persons causing frustration.

b) Buck mastership (expression coined by Parkinson):- Superior avoiding hard work themselves and passing on the same to their subordinates and finding faults.

c) Cover Assignment: Good worker being overloaded to the extent that he feeds being exploited.

d) Coercive type of supervision: Manipulative, divide and rule policy, making promises but not keeping them, encouraging groupism, etc.

All this factors are the factors that demotivate staffs in any organization. Its stand as an obstruction to the achievement of goals in organizations. 


The purpose of this is mainly to detect the factor that could motivate the performance of the workers for effective management of any organization and of Ilorin west local government council.

It is hoped that results obtainable independently from worker will assist management to make necessary adjustment in their existing policies to enhance staff motivation.

1. Job contentment

2. Monetary incentives 

3. Promotion prospects

4. Training 

5. Welfare services

6. Work environment
