The motives behind motivation…

In Mike Poundfords letter featured in the People Management Magazine commenting on Rob Briner’s “Terms of engagement column and “Engaged in conversation” feature, 30 July 2009” it states that “engagement is a voluntary act” and that the organisation can not engage people, “it is up to the individual.” The letter highlights that there are a numerous reasons why it is up to the employee e.g. financial, social and ethical reasons.

Without seeing the original feature I can’t really comment fully on the complete feature but ending in the letter with “personal aspirations are aligned with organisational purpose” signalling that engagement is difficult for an employer to drive.  I believe it highlights another reason why motivation is one of the main aspects of HR, if an employee is motivated it does result in engagement.

    Recognition Letter : It is written to inform the organization that you would like to leave the organization. One should clearly mention the reason for leaving the company in the letter. If one does not want to share the reasons of leaving, one can mention it as the personal reasons. You can also thank the organization for giving the chance to serve them.

    I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

    May I simply say what a relief to uncover a person that truly knows what they are talking about on the web. You certainly understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people have to read this and understand this side of your story. It’s surprising you’re not more popular since you surely possess the gift.
