Work Motivation Factors and Attitude towards Organizational Change

Alex D. Confesor | Diomedes R. Pechora



The purpose of the study was to highlight the importance of an in depth understanding of the work motivation and attitudes towards organizational change, and the factors that influence and drive such motivations and attitudes hoping to mitigate the negative and bolster the positive effects of organizational change on employees. The work motivation included drive, control, challenge, relationships, and rewards, while attitudes towards organizational change were focused on cynicism to change, fear of change and acceptance of change. Using the descriptive correlation method with descriptive statistics and Pearson r, it was established in the study that there is no significant relationship between the two variables. The study concludes that employees’ work motivation is not influenced or driven by their attitudes towards impending organizational change. The results suggest that the organization must institutionalize measures to sustain and upgrade level of work motivation.
