Employee Motivation – How is it Used?

Our internationally recognized Emotional Intelligence (EQ) model and assessment combine with award winning development programs to enhance leadership, sales, teamwork, and customer service.

01. To Improve employee engagement

Our motivation assessment and development programs improve employee engagement by creating greater awareness of motivation and greater alignment between what people are motivated by and what they do at work.

02. To develop leadership

Our Motivating and Engaging Your Team (MET) program improves leader understanding of engagement and how to lift the engagement of the people they lead by better understanding what individually motivates them. High levels of employee engagement are most quickly and efficiently achieved when leaders facilitate an individualized approach to it. This in part is what our motivation solution is – a development program for leaders comprising an assessment, process and tool kit that helps them understand motivation at an individual level and increase employee engagement on that basis.

03. Team building

Organizations provide teams with the assessment and a development program to help them understand each other’s motivations and how to work best with each other on that basis.

The Difference – It Makes

The Genos motivation solution delivers improvements in employee engagement scores, which in turn result in:

01. An increase in the capacity to attract and retain talent

02. An increase in discretionary effort

03. An increase in innovation.

Research on the relationship between levels of employee engagement and business performance is clear, robust, and well-established. Organizations that achieve high levels of employee engagement on average achieve 3.9 times earnings per share greater than like competitor organizations with average or low levels of employee engagement.

Genos Employee Motivation Assessment

The Genos Employee Motivation Assessment is a 135-item measure of what motivates people, in the four areas of our model, Role, Manager, Team and Organisation. It is used predominantly to help leaders understand what individually motivates their staff and how to motivate them on that basis. It is also used:

01. In recruitment — to ensure candidates motivations are aligned with the work, manager, team and organization they will be working with.

02. In career planning — to help individuals consider different roles, managers, teams and organizations their motivational profiles might be suited to.

03. In team building — to help create awareness of individual motivational profiles.

How It Is Completed

It is completed online via our web-enabled assessment platform. It takes approximately 25 minutes to complete, comprised of 135 force-choice items.

The key features of this assessment include:

01. Reliable and valid — the assessment has been proven to be a valid indicator of workplace motivations predicting important workplace variables such as performance and employee engagement.

02. Highly practical — it is one of the only motivation assessments not based on personality or other such psychological constructs, but rather based on workplace factors.

03. Four key profiles from the one assessment — The Genos Employee Motivation assessment is the only assessment on the market that describes what an individual is motivated by in terms of day-to-day job factors, leadership styles, team and organizational characteristics.
