Abstract

This research explores if there is a link between isolation levels and intrinsic versus intrinsic levels of motivation. The research will be focused on millennials who are currently working from home due to the Covid19 pandemic. The aim of the research is to seek if the reduced human contact we experience when working from home will influence the motivation levels of millennials.

The literature review will create a conceptual framework which is based on discourse surrounding the areas of motivation, and isolation. The different elements of the conceptual framework will all tie together and form a basis for the research. Using a positivist, deductive, quantitative study of 69 millennials currently working home temporarily due to Covid19. As well as capturing demographic information about the sample population, the research will measure six different variables;
● Intrinsic motivation
● Identified regulation
● Introjected regulation
● External regulation
● Colleague Isolation
● Company Isolation

The data collection will allow the researcher to test various hypotheses which were formulated based on existing literature surrounding motivation and isolation levels, as well as allowing the researcher to observe other findings outside the research objectives.
