Abstract [en]

Today's society is on several levels dependent on organizations and their maintaining of work

and production which demands that people can find motivation to do tasks within their workrole.

This study will examine how employees in for-profit organizations is motivated to fulfill

their working tasks. The purpose of this study will be answered partly by examining how

employees experience motivation but also adding how employers perceive the experienced

motivation. This is a qualitative comparative case-study which in addition to the central

purpose also answers if there are differences and similarities about work motivation between

an organization within the public and private sector. The study proceeds from several themes

which is based on previous research and theory and uses a theoretical framework “intrinsic

and extrinsic motivation” to delimit the study. The results shows that work motivation is

something subjective and that both intrinsic and extrinsic factors affect motivation in different

ways. The themes that were chosen proved to be of importance although the study illuminate

that they affect people in different ways in various situations. The results of this study proved

that there were many similarities between the public and private sector in what motivates

employees.
