In order to have good motivation employees needs have to be found.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Many people believe that they are motivated by earning money, but this is not entirely true, because there are other factors that we have to take into account when wanting to motivate our employees. The need to be appreciated for the work they do may be reflected in the prestige attached to their job, and while the need for a variety in the workplace may be satisfied by an interesting job. A factor, which effects motivation, is that every individual has different needs. For example an employee may prefer to work on his or her own than in a friendly team. In order to have good motivation employees needs have to be found. This is shown in how lack of motivation equals reduced effort and lack of commitment. An example of how employee's needs could be satisfied is through involving them in discussions so that they feel recognised and wanted. A business could also set up discussions with management about goals and working practises which would make employees feel their opinion counts and also that their contribution is valuable. In the long term this may result in the employee being willing to work longer hours or take responsibility for his/her company. ...read more.

Airbus offers a wide number of opportunities to encourage motivation and ensure that employees are completely committed to the cause. Some of the initiatives set up are described below: SAYE: Save As You Earn was implemented so that employees can buy shares in Airbus itself and also have a regular saving scheme the shares are offered at a cut price, alternative to that of the share prices on the stock exchange. Airbus employees are given around a 20% discount on shares. Employees are then offered a 3 or 5 year option and save a sum of money each month for that time period. When this time is up the employee receives an additional cash bonus along with their savings. The cash that is saved can then be used to buy shares in Airbus at the cut price, or simply take the money and do with it what they wish. BAe Pension scheme: Airbus offers a pension scheme based on the salary of the employee at retirement.. Employees are offered a 3%,5% or 7% saving on their salary. There is no age restriction to when employees can enter the scheme, it is available to each and every employee. If an employee dies, money is given to any nominated person or any surviving spouse. ...read more.

Conclusion

It takes some element of planning to conduct the appraisal, both employees and the management need time to plan. The employees last appraisal has to be reviewed, in order to see if the employee has moved on and benefited from the last time. The appraisal also needs a good location, for example it cannot be conducted in the middle of the factory as communication levels need to be high. The appraisal would usually take 45 minutes therefore a room needs to be allocated for that time scale, in order to prevent the interview being interrupted. The management should look to monitor the employees performance levels and be able to comment on these performance levels with the employee, for example ask for an explanation to any poor performance or congratulate the employee on good performance. Both the employee and the management have to draw up a set of goals that the employee has to achieve, the objectives should be: Specific Measurable Attainable Realistic Time phased Towards the end of the appraisal the management should summarise the interview, the employee has the chance to look over what was documented from the appraisal and add any additional comments. When they are content the employee should sign the document. Both the management and the employee have a copy of the appraisal and one is sent to Personel for processing. ...read more.
