Motivation is derived from the Latin word Movere means to move or to drive or to drive forward, among other things. Employee motivation is defined as motivating, inspiring, and inducing them to perform at their best. Employees cannot be forced to be motivated because motivation is a psychological term. It develops naturally from within the personnel as a result of their motivation to work. For example, if an employee develops a desire to earn more money, he would become restless and begin to consider ways to meet his want. To meet his needs, he may consider working hard in the organization and getting promoted, therefore he will begin to work hard. After some time, he will receive incentives, raises, or promotions that will meet his needs.
