A new global analysis from Mercer – conducted among nearly 30,000 employees in 17 geographic markets between the fourth quarter of 2010 and the second quarter of 2011 - reveals that non-financial factors play a prominent role in influencing employee motivation and engagement.
Employees worldwide say that being treated with respect is the most important factor, followed by work/life balance, type of work, quality of co-workers and quality of leadership (see figure).
While other financial factors, such as benefits and incentive pay, can be important to other aspects of the employment deal – such as attracting, retaining and rewarding employees – Mercer’s research shows they are considered less important by employees when it comes to their day-to-day motivation and engagement at work.
Motivated employees are an asset to all organisations. They propel the organisation forward by positively influencing the work climate, attitudes, customer orientation and, ultimately, organisational performance.
