CHAPTER ONE
GENERAL INTRODUCTION
1.1 Background of the Study
Even with the best strategy in place and appropriate organizational architecture, an organization will be effective only if it members are motivated to perform at a high level. The types of motivation are intrinsic and extrinsic. “Intrinsic motivation is a psychological force that determines the direction of a person’s behaviour as a result of challenging or interesting work, giving autonomy to work, designed scope to develop skills, abilities, opportunity to develop and grow, etc. Extrinsic is also psychological force that determines behavioral change as a result of tangible and intangible benefit such as salary, fringe benefit and special awards” (Jones and George, 2003).

It is a fact that success in every organization depends on the quality of its human resources both skilled and unskilled labour which is perhaps the most intangible aspect of the organization, hence the most important. All these things plants, machinery and financing cannot generate income without manpower. Studies have shown that in today’s competitive business environment, success is increasingly a function of effective human resources management (Ahindo, 2008). It is therefore necessary to have a workforce that is motivated to yield high performance and productivity towards achieving the organizational goals and objectives.

Irrespective of the industry within which an organization operates, the concept of motivationcannot be looked down upon. With this regard banking being a service industry and therefore having direct contact with customers, the presence or absence of employees’ motivation can have immediate telling effect on the customer (thus either delighting the customer or otherwise) which eventually results in customer retention and profitability .

It is one of the driving forces that have direct impact on the business productivity. The critical workforce management challenges of the immediate future driven by corporate reengineering and restructuring efforts, loyalty concerns and fierce competition for key talents are closely linked to the emerging issues of employees’ commitment and productivity.

The role of management therefore in all these is paramount. A transparent style of administration is what is required since it is one of the surest ways to motivate staff. This is because management plays significant and unique role in terms of leadership drive and direction. This role can be considerably a kind of catalyst, able to tap and awaken each employee’s unique talents and convert them to performance. However, it is only through varied organizational strategies that a manager will be able to trigger his/ her employee’s hidden talents which are highly important in the productivity and performance of the organization. These strategies can be external and internal to employees and one of these strategies employed by managers is motivation....
