It takes more than money to motivate today's workers. In today's workplace, where managers expect workers and teams to self-manage their work, employees demand more than just extrinsic motivators such as pay, benefits, pension plans and the like. For today's workers, intrinsic rewards - the psychological rewards workers get directly from the work itself - are essential. Grounded in solid research, Intrinsic Motivation at Work provides a diagnostic framework for addressing the issue of intrinsic motivation and details essential ways to build it. Ken Thomas describes four intrinsic rewards that make work energizing and fulfilling for today's employees: - a sense of purpose or meaningfulness, - the ability to choose how the tasks are performed, - a sense of copetence from performing work activities well, and - a sence of progress. Thomas details the building blocks leaders and workers can use to create these rewards in the workplace and spells out the practical implications for building motivation at every level of an organization. - Cover
