This study represents an initial endeavour to explore needs satisfaction: An effective tool for workers commitment to work. Inspite of the motivational strategies available and employed in organisations, the issue of employee performance and productivity is still very much questionable. This is because what motivates one individual may not necessarily be what motivates another individual (s). Therefore, individual needs and motivational factors should be assessed critically and addressed carefully. The survey instrument used in the collection of data was questionnaire which was based on a random selection as the primary source of data. Some of the questions asked were centered on the factors that motivates an employee to perform and hence productive in the organisation. Based on the data obtained from the respondents which was analyzed using the statistical tool (pie chart) method, it was observed that a greater number of respondents supported the notion that high employee performance and productivity is a fimction of need satisfaction (motivation). These findings appear to be useful in furthering the understanding of the complexity associated with the strategy to the realities of result oriented organisation environment by recommending that organisations should accord priority attention to the introduction of good motivational package (such as: good remuneration, instituting other monetary awards, higher fringe benefits package and other financial rewards, timely promotion, cafeteria, flextime, employee involvement, etc.) to enhance higher productivity and commitment to work.
