CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1. BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Motives are drivers to human behaviour. It plays important role in the performance, productivity and other activities and as such the managers should know what motivation is and how subordinates can be motivated toward improving performance. Motivation is the reason why people act in a particular manner. Motivation is not a simple concept; it pertains to various needs, drives, desires, wishes and other forces of all individuals tendency. Human motives are based on needs which are consciously or subconsciously sensed. Some needs are basic, while some are secondary; such needs include water, air, shelter, food, sleep, self-esteem, status, affiliation, affection, accomplishment and self- assertion (Weihrich, Cannice & Koontz, 2008). According to Maslow, individuals attain the next hierarchy of needs after the first one has been achieved. Senior managers are not much motivated extrinsically by money and other physiological needs, but are well motivated intrinsically through self-esteem and self actualization and by so doing if their ideas are well transformed into performance, they feel motivated (Muogbo, 2013). In the Power Holding Sector however, there are still cries of poor performance despite its privatization and the image of the employees has not changed from the old public PHCN (Ohimain, 2014). In the world today, it is generally accepted that the success of any business organization depends on the effective utilization of the effort of all workers in the organization. Managers are responsible for creating an environment that is conducive for improved performance, so as to induce the right behaviour from employees in the organization. For employees to be highly motivated, the manager must ensure that working conditions is adequate and welfare package is attractive to the employees (Akanbi, 2002). However, the productivity of an organization is jointly determined by the employee’s capacity and their willingness to put in their best (Feldman & Arnold, 1983; William, 2010). Willingness and ability are important, since it implies that beyond a certain level, lack of ability cannot be compensated for willingness to high motivation and conversely lack of willingness cannot be compensated for employee’s ability to high level performance. Willingness and ability are necessary components of effective performance in every organization.
