dc.description.abstract Workers who are adequately motivated derive satisfaction from their jobs. Their productivity is enhanced and therefore employees’ job satisfaction deserves serious attention from managers and researchers in various disciplines [DO95]. Human behaviour is complex and the study of motivation searches for answers to perplexing questions that revolve around human nature. Numerous theories of motivation have been developed and those of some of the best-known authors such as Maslow, Herzberg, McGregor, McClelland, Atkinson, Hackman and Oldham, Vroom and Porter and Lawler will be discussed. Possible implications of the application and manifestation of the theories in an information technology environment are also thrashed out, and the potential integration of the existing theories and the relationship between motivation and job satisfaction, are considered. The function of an information technology environment is to provide a professional service to internal as well as external customers and successful companies manage much more than their assets and records. The focus is also on relationships with clients, employees, shareholders, and stakeholders and how well this service will be rendered depends upon the self-motivation of the employees. Job satisfaction within an institution serves as an indicator of morale as well as of a successful operation and findings of motivation and job satisfaction can be very useful to both management and their staff. Many businesses are still structured according to an outdated business model of management style that has become obsolete in an information age. Management must seriously address job satisfaction issues if the company wants to prosper and survive. en
