To obtain maximum productivity from the work-force, the workers need to be motivated to put in their best at all times.

As a result of these differences, what motivates one person may not motivate the other. For this reason, the management of each enterprise must intelligently work out the most effective motivation theory or method to be applied to get the best out of its employees.

Motivation theories and methods are means to an end, the end result being employees’ productivity which enables the organization to achieve it s set objectives
