Motivation Motivation is defined as forces within an individual that account for the level, direction, and persistence of effort expended at work. Motivation plays a key role in increasing productivity, satisfaction,and improving a business as a whole. We discovered that C & D Scrap Metal satisfies all of the lower-order needs according to the Hierarchy of Needs Theory. First, they definitely meet the physiological needs of theiremployees by paying an hourly wage in order for employees survive and put food on the table. Although there are safety hazards with the scrap metal industry, C & D also provides great security, protection, and stability in day to day life by providing a great benefits package and enforcing strict safety guidelines to follow at work. Judging by the dedication of long term employees, we believe that C & D scrap metal also meets the social needs of its employees by giving them a sense of belonging. Meeting these lower order needs has resulted in success for the business.
