Ritchie S, Martin PIdentifies motivational drivers such as the human needs for interesting work, achievement, self development, variety, creativity, power and influence, social contact, money and tangible rewards, structure and rules, long-term relationships and good working conditions. Provides a motivational profile questionnaire which reveals the unique pattern of the individual’s motivational drivers, so that management can develop appropriately tailored strategies to improve work motivation. Explores the practical implications for managing change, coping with stress, teamworking, staff selection and working with others. Constitutes a practical approach that will be useful to management trainers and will also be of value in guiding managers dealing with employee motivation problems, but does not add significantly to the existing body of content theories of work motivation.
