Abstract

The leading objective for this study was to investigate extrinsic motivators as a means to motivate employees with the purpose of increasing employee engagement through benefits. The study was conducted through a qualitative analysis of employees working in multinational organisations.
The study used multiple forms of secondary research by examining key theorists in the area of motivation including Vrooms Expectancy Theory, Locke and Latham’s Goal-Setting Theory and Herzberg’s Two-Factor Theory of Motivators and Hygiene Factors. The study also plays a focus on extrinsic motivation and what extrinsic motivations are important to employees today. The researcher used semi-structured interviews to form primary research. Six participants took part all of whom work in multinationals. The participants were asked a series of questions in order for the researcher to analyse and discuss their opinions on motivation.
The findings of this research may be valuable to leaders, Human Resource’s personnel or benefits specialist working in a multinational organisation. The findings consider the importance of benefits and the benefits which are becoming more important in the new era of work due to Covid-19.
