Organizational psychology professionals can render valuable service by consulting with company leaders to determine which motivation theory or theoretical perspective might be most appropriate or effective for their company. These theories then inform work motivational strategies that are influenced by organizational contexts. Organizational contexts may include the organizational culture, demographic profile of an organization’s workforce, desired levels of employee performance, and leaders’ respect for employee motivation and their perspective of workers’ motivation.
Organizational psychology professionals then transform theory into strategy. As they develop work motivation strategies based on theory, they must be able to provide a rationale to organizational leaders for why the work motivation strategies might be effective based on organizational contexts.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post by Day 3 a brief explanation of how organizational contexts influence work motivation strategies. Then provide an example of a work motivation strategy that might be effective in your current or previous workplace and explain why based on organizational contexts.
Note: If you have never worked, provide an example of a work motivation strategy that might be effective based on the context of your degree program and explain why.
