Motivating Factors

Intrinsic

  • Opportunities to Solve Complex Problems. Most people want to show up to work and do nothing for eight hours a day.  I, on the other hand, want to show up and put my knowledge and skills to work.  Solving complex problems will get you noticed within your company.
  • Freedom to Make Decisions without Approval from a Supervisor.Nobody likes a micro-manager.  I prefer to be told what the end result should be and then do what it takes to make it happen.  I don’t like having to go to my boss every half hour and ask, “Can I do it this way?” or “What should I do next?”
  • Being Commended by Superiors when Doing a Good Job. Praise goes along with solving complex problems.  When you do something well, it is extremely motivating to be told you did a great job.

Extrinsic

  • Potential for Growth within the Company. Knowing there is an opportunity for a promotion makes me want to work harder to prove that I am worthy of being promoted.
  • Excellent Pay and Benefits. Let’s be honest, we all want to make a lot of money.  But, it’s not always all about your base salary.  Health, dental, and vision benefits, 401(k) matches, and tuition reimbursement are some of my favorites.
  • Having a Flexible Work Schedule. I realized very quickly when I started working full-time how hard it was to get errands done during the week.  Some places aren’t open on the weekends or after 5:30pm on weekdays.  Lunch breaks sometimes aren’t long enough to get personal errands done.  Being able to take an extra hour lunch to get a teeth cleaning or leave a little early to go to a doctor’s appointment can be unexpectedly motivating.
