Abstract [en]

In an ever changing labour market, motivation factors have come to have a central role in organizations' efforts to recruit and retain competence. Today, the labour market is characterized by slim organizations and flexible forms of employment which has contributed to work having a different meaning. In the past, individuals simply saw work as a tool of providing for the family while nowadays it is increasingly about achieving personal development and self-realization. A motivated and satisfied workforce is key to achieving this which puts a great responsibility on the employer. The purpose of using motivational factors in the study has been to identify how they are used among organizations to maintain their employees. The focus has subsequently been to investigate motivation from two perspectives; intrinsic and extrinsic. To answer the purpose of the study, five people with knowledge in the area have been interviewed. The collected data has been analysed using reward management as theory. The result of the study revealed that the organizations are in a competitive labour market where internal as well as external motivation factors are needed to compete for competencies.
