    Abstract

    It becomes a HR wisdom that motivated employees tend to be more engaged at work and loyal to their job. Therefore, the ability to manage people effectively is central to foster organizational success. This report aims to find out how can the application of motivational approaches develop and sustain a happy and productive workforce. A questionnaire based survey has been conducted by 44 respondents at the University of Portsmouth. The results suggest that motivated employees are happier to work with supported co-workers in a comfortable working environment, and an adequate payment tends to make them stay longer in their current position. The implication of these results if applied could be useful to general business manager.
