Explain how being paid may or may not have a negative effect on performance based on intrinsic motivation. On the basis of your experience, give examples from school or work that worked as intrinsic motivators for you. Describe the factors that contribute to job satisfaction for most workers and explain if these factors are entirely under the control of the organization.
Work overload, deadlines, and difficult bosses or coworkers are just some work-related stressors. Based on your own experiences describe some other type of negative stressors. Explain why organizations should be concerned about employee stress. Along with that explain why it is important for organizations to look at the broad picture of an individual’s total stress rather than focusing only on stress derived from work. Finally, explain how organizations can decrease negative stressors.
