Wilson 2 Motivation is believing in someone and encouraging them to be better person or worker. Some people need that extra push to be the person they are destined to be on earth. A simple “I believe in you” can motivate a person to be the top performer on the team. Employees deal with a lot on a day to day basis. They carry the stress of work along with the stress of their personal lives. Some people work for the money while others work to help reach the mission of the company. Studies have shown that public sector employees have higher levels of public service oriented goals and are less motivated by monetary gain than private sector employees. Public employees understand the importance of public service. Private sector employees care more about the money than the service. (Smith, 2013) Studies have shown that public sector workers tend to work because they enjoy working while private sector employees are prone to work for an incentive. Public sector workers seemed to have more intrinsic motivation due to their mission. When employees know and understand the company’s mission then are will work to help the company fulfill its mission. You have to know where you are going in order to get to that point. It is good for companies to have goals and a mission so that the employee can work towards the mission. The employees will know why they are working and will have an understanding and know the importance they will make just be doing their portion of the job. (Stritch) Studies have shown that public sector workers are less motivated by monetary rewards when using for activities with a prosocial impact. Public sector workers’ behaviors are not influenced by incentives or rewards whether it is known or not. (Belle’, 2015

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
