CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.0 BACKGROUND OF RESEARCH PROBLEM:
The theories of motivation constitute one of the streams of the plethora of management theories that explain the behavior of employees at work This is because what motivates one person is quite different from what motivates others.
The importance of motivation in the success of any organization in terms of the attainment of set organizational goal, be it in the area of productivity, profit margin, market share, efficiency, customer satisfaction, value of stock etc is universally acknowledged in the business world. Hence motivation has became “one of the most frequently researched topics in organizational behaviour (OB)” as Robbins (2005: 107) observed. The situation, Robbins noted is due to the discovery that 55% of workers in the United State “have no enthusiasm for their work”. Nevertheless, the application of the emergent motivation theories and their impact on the success of business organization has been a subject of immense debate amongst management science scholars. This not withstanding, the truism that an organization can only be as productively successful as its work force is correspondingly motivating other variables in the production process such as technology, quality of workers, environment being equally recognized, becomes very important with respect to the case under study – Beta Glass Plc Ughelli, Delta State.
1.1 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM:
It was observed that some workers are not happy with their work. Furthermore, there are many and varied reasons why management are continually under distress in organization. Resources, human and material, technology are but a few issues confronting managers daily. More importantly, the human aspect has questions that have perplexed and fascinated managers for a long time. These questions include but not limited to:
What makes some employees perform better than others
What makes some employees seem better satisfied in their jobs than other
How can we improve the motivation and overall productivity of employees
These are indeed teething questions and constraints that plague managers daily It is a fact that the level of employee motivation affects morale, performance and overall production.
1.2 OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY:
It is a common postulation that the productivity of workers is in no small measure associated with the nature and extent of the motivation programmes developed and implemented for the benefit of the workers by the organization. A motivated worker is therefore more likely to evolve and demonstrate the highest level of commitment, dedication to duty and organizational loyalty into the work process. Therefore, in investigating the impact of the application of the theories of motivation on the productivity of worker with Beta Glass Plc Ughelli as case study, the study seeks to achieve the underlisted objectives.
I.    Examine the concept of motivation

1.5SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY:
Management science literature is replete with several theories of motivation. However, most of the theories were developed in different social – economic and cultural environment of industrial Europe and America.
Several of these theories are yet to be tested in Africa and Nigeria environment. Therefore, there is the need to conduct a related study with these theoretical postulations in the Nigeria environment, specifically, this study will bridge the knowledge gap which is created as result of the environmental difference in the sources of the theories of motivation and the location where these theories are practiced.
The study will also provide invaluable data by decision makers and industrial relations practitioners on the impact of application of the theories of motivation and workers productivity.
