How to Design Jobs to Enhance Satisfaction and Motivation
Discussion: How to Design Jobs to Enhance Satisfaction and Motivation: Job Characteristics Model Respond to both of the following (a and b): Consider a job you have held that you did NOT find motivating. What job characteristics were missing?
How do you think that job could have been redesigned to enhance one or more job characteristics and increase its motivating properties Note: If someone posts a response to one of your posts, you should engage with that person as appropriate—as if you were having a real-time
conversation. For example, when someone has posted to your initial job characteristics post, go back and comment on whether or not the suggested changes would have made you feel more motivated. Why or why not?
Critically compare and contrast the Job Characteristics Model with Herzberg's Motivation-Hygiene theory.
What factors leading to satisfaction (motivators) can be aligned with Job Characteristics or Critical Psychological States?
Do you think any of Herzberg's dissatisfiers (hygiene factors) align with Job Characteristics or Critical Psychological States?
If not, what, if anything, does this tell you?
