Abstract

The research study analyzes the motivational factors of employees in the work process and the related characteristics. Motivational factors are analyzed in terms of the work areas. Consequently, we focus on the description and results of employee motivation research, as well as on specific examples in the work process of the selected sample of respondents. The research sample consisted of 79 employees (M= 36,46 ; SD=7,59), specifically 21 executive employees, 37 employees from education and 21 employees from production. The research data were collected through MESI methodology [2], which measured social intelligence and DMV questionnaire [2], which measured achievement motivation. We did not find statistically significant differences in the level of achievement motive between employees working in selected working areas. We did not find statistically significant differences in the level of achievement motive and in the level of social intelligence between employees younger than 35 years and employees older than 36 years.
