The Impact of Motivation on Employees Performance at Government Agencies in Jordan

Author(s): Adnan Mohammad Alwedyan

The study aims to identify the impact of motivations on employees’ performance at several government agencies from Jerash in Jordan. The researcher used the descriptive analytical approach and developed a questionnaire which was distributed to (101) government employees who represented the study sample during the period (March, 2020-July, 2020).

The study is significant for shedding light on assessing the impact of motivation on government employees in Jordan, a relatively underrepresented segment of study population within motivation theories.

Results showed that the relationship between morale motivations and government employees’ job performance is 30% stronger than the relationship between physical motivations and the performance of the same employees. Further, results showed a nonexistence of a statistically considerable impact for the physical motivations on the study sample’s performance, with F-value of (1.68).

The study recommends conducting modifications on the motivation system to align with the nature of the employees’ jobs and efforts, and, paying attention to both the physical and morale motivations.
