It helps the organisations to relate the rewards directly to performance and allow them to ensure that the rewards that are provided are deserved and wanted by the recipients. 4. Job Characteristics Model: Hackman and Oldham’s job characteristics model is based on the concept that the task itself is the key to employee motivation. Job rotation and job enrichment are two major ways of adding variety and challenge to a job and initiate workplace motivation. According to the theory – there are five core job characteristics, such as task identity, skill variety, task significance, autonomy, and feedback, which can e combined to form a motivating potential score (MPS) for a job. It is advised to learn about these theories in detail to have a better grip over the topic of employee motivation.
