Our research shows that understanding what motivates you and your people is a key aspect of employee engagement, retention, job satisfaction and talent acquisition.
‘To win in the marketplace, you must first win in the workplace.’ – Doug Contant
If you can identify what it is that your people respond well to then you have the edge. After all, what is the point in publicly recognising an employee who dreads being put in the spotlight? How could you ever know there is a chance they may actually find the experience de-motivating?
In a competitive recruitment environment, it is advantageous to know what motivation drivers your candidate best responds to. You are then able to pitch the role and adapt your message based on what engages them. Not everyone is motivated by financial reward for example, it may be well-being or collaboration that fires them up.
“Research indicates that workers have three prime needs: Interesting work, recognition for doing a good job, and being let in on things that are going on in the company.” – Zig Ziglar
With motivationflow® you can quantify what motivates your people both day-to-day and under pressure. With this information you can help to create the right conditions for optimal performance. motivationflow® is an online psychometric assessment that takes 15-20minutes to complete. It measures 7 dimensions of motivation.
Growth: Are they motivated by professional development opportunities and to what extent is this the case?
Recognition: Do they value praise and recognition of their performance? Do they recognise the good work or others?
Collaboration: Are they motivated by working with colleagues and participating in group activities? Do they value networking?

Reward: Are they motivated by financial spoils?
Purpose: How important to them is having purpose and meaning in the work that they do?
