Rajesh is 25 years old. The first full-time job he got during last summer breaking completing his bachelor level was a clerical job in a large office. He had to take his support of his study further. He found the job most tedious and boring. He had to arrive morning at 9 pm and stay there up to 5 pm. His duty consisted of filing various letterforms. Every day, he had to stand for hours in front of a long line of file cabinets. He discovered that he could finish the work in about three hours and remain the whole doing nothing.
This resulted in him to learn to work in slow motion and to turn off attention so that he stands there after hours like the clock laboriously tick away the minutes. The only thing enjoyed was his lunch and tiffin breaks. Since he needed money for his further education he had to stick to it.
His salary was 15000/- per month. For that, he was expected to be there at times until 5 pm. There is another college student who was a year senior in college. He soon noticed that the guy rarely arrived in time and often disappeared for hours in the middle of the day. The guy was paid 1000/- more than he was. Rajesh felt insulted. Does year’s seniority qualify that guy for so many perks? How can Rajesh get along in the condition? He also found that the guy was the son of a local politician. This made Rajesh more serious and the remaining motivation he had flown out of the window.
- What kind of motivation does Rajesh have in the case?
- Explain the factors related to work motivation?
- What are the wrong aspects associated with the job of Rajesh and explain them?
- What would you do, if you had been the head of the section Rajesh is working in?
