Integrating Human Resources: the Motivation Factor
MetadataShow full item record
Human resources are a vital component to every company. Without hard working and motivated employees businesses simply could not function. Therefore, it is very important that management keep its employees happy and satisfied with their positions, while at the same time organize human effort in the service of the economic objectives of the enterprise. "The fact that a company is economically successful means, among other things, that management has been able to attract people into the organization and to organize and direct their efforts toward the production and sale of goods or services at a profit" (The Human Side, 4). The success of a company directly depends on how management can motivate people to utilize their knowledge and skills to the fullest. Managers must realize what the economic needs of the company are, as well as, employee needs. Although this may sound simple, it is one of the most difficult tasks management faces. This is because most managers rely on traditional theories and do not consider human nature. They fail to recognize that satisfying human needs will result in a happier and productive work force.
