S. O. Onimole Phd Mni

The study also feels that there are good reasons to believe that enlarging jobs can lead to situation where jobs are more intrinsically motivating. The study examined earlier works of Herzberg, Hepwonth, Maslow Hackman and Lawler etc, and concluded that the more satisfied a worker is on the job, the more effective he/she will be in performing the assigned tasks or works. Key words: job design, job satisfaction, employee motivation, enriched work, job re-design performance, job enrichment, productivity, job rotation.
