Is it really possible to reduce employee turnover and hire top performing, highly motivated employees?
Yes, there is. It all comes down to selection based on motivation. Why motivation?
Motivation directs behavior.
It is this highly valuable consequence of motivation that makes it a primary concern for managers, teachers, religious leaders, coaches, health care providers, parents and anyone concerned with mobilizing others to act. People are moved to act by very different types of factors. They can be motivated because they value an activity or because they fear punishment. They can be urged by an abiding interest or a bribe. They can act because of a sense of personal commitment or for fear of being judged. These contrasts between being internally motivated or externally pressured are familiar to all of us. While intuitively familiar to all, social scientists and psychologists have studied and measured motivation for decades. The theory of motivation, or Self-Determination Theory (SDT) was originally established by Edward L. Deci and Richard M. Ryan and has been detailed scientists across many disciplines . For example, SDT has been studies in education, entertainment and media, health care, organizations and work, video games, physical activity and exercise.
