Abstract

Motivation plays paramount role for engineers at workplace in order to increase workplace productivity of organizations. The purpose of this research was to investigate whether engineers of Pakistan are motivated to perform workplace jobs effectively at workplace. Thirty engineers from two engineering organizations of Pakistan participated in this study. Data were collected through questionnaire survey and semi structured interviews. Purposive sampling method was used for data collection purpose since respondents were drawn on specific criteria of engineers with minimum 5 years work experience. Data were analyzed both quantitatively and qualitatively. Quantitative data were analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) in order to draw percentages for agreement and disagreement of engineers for low motivation at workplace. Qualitative data were analyzed using data reduction, data display and conclusion drawing and verification method as suggested by (Miles and Huberman, 1994). Open coding (Richards, 2005; Strauss and Corbin, 1998; Patton, 2002) and content analysis approach was used (Miles and Huberman, 1994). The results of the study indicated that engineers face low motivation at workplace. The findings of the study can be used as a guideline to motivate engineers in order to increase workplace productivity of organizations.
