This is a case study using one company to discuss the application of the "Job Characteristic Model", as created by Hackman and Oldham (1975). This theory is based on the belief that employers have considerable power to increase the motivation of their employees by the way that they design the jobs. Other methods of increasing motivation and productivity are examined.
From the Paper:"The Job Characteristic Model as created by Hackman and Oldham (1975) is based on the belief that employers have considerable power to increase the motivation (and,ultimately, the productivity) of their employees by the way that they design the jobs to be undertaken by their staff. There is considerable logic in this idea, for the way a job is shaped can affect how it is achieved and so what effect the doing of the job has on the employee. Employees are motivated by a number of different factors, based on several theories of motivation. The design of a job can be one of those factors."
