Purdue Relationship Between Employee Performance and Motivation Discussion

With the current trend towards providing support for assertions in the news, social media, academics, and business (i.e., analytics) learning to find support for your statements is a valuable skill. In this Discussion you will get some practice finding support for the topic provided as well as some practice applying a model to explain your response to a query.

Part 1: Supporting Assertions

Go to the Library following the instructions above, and look for peer-reviewed research articles regarding the topic of: “Better salary and benefits motivate better employee performance.”

It does not matter whether the peer-reviewed research found support or not for this statement.

Your job is to:

  • Choose an article not used by another student in this Discussion, and report the findings using an in-text citation (see the Learning Activity), and accompanying reference in APA format. (Hint: In research studies, you can look at the Abstract section at the beginning or in the final pages where the summarized results are usually found.)

Part 2: Applying the Job Characteristics Model

  • Discuss your current or past job in terms of the Job Characteristics Model to explain why you were or are currently motivated and satisfied or not, with the work.
