PhD. Nhat Nguyen Cong, PhD. Dung Nguyen Van

Employers are faced with the task of motivating employees and creating high job satisfaction among their staff. Creating programs and policies that develop job satisfaction and serve to motivate employees takes time and money to create. When the employer understands the benefits of job satisfaction and motivation in the workplace, though, the investment in employee-related policies can be justified. The purpose of any motivation programme is to motivate the organization’s employees to enable them work effectively. However, motivating employees is not an easy thing as what motivates employees differs among people. This paper intended to establish a set of factors that can motivate employees of PVNC and to establish the policy implications of these factors for managing staff of the PVNC. It was found that Pay and Promotion is the most important motivational factor followed by Good working conditions. The paper revealed that these two factors are not the only factors that are needed to motivate employees of the PVNC. Other factors, including Interesting works and Promotion and growth in the organization, are equally important depending on the type of motivational theory that is adopted. The study finally stresses the avoidance of disparities in pay/reward among staff of the same rank as a strategy to motivate and retain high quality staff in the PVNC. The study thus raises red flags that warn the management to be extra careful in their attempt to motivate staff of PVNC for effective.
