Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the consultants' approach to the intrinsic and extrinsic motivation in temporary work agencies. We examined the motivation of three temporary work agencies to see if there are any differences in how they motivate their consultants. The intrinsic motivation comes from the own spontaneous interest while the extrinsic is related to the surrounding circumstances.

We created a survey with 42 questions for the consultants, concerning motivation in order to understand their attitudes to the phenomenon of motivation.

The following issues are addressed in our study:

- What are consultant’s experiences of motivation in the temporary work agencies and are there any background factors that may impact?

- Are there any differences in how consultants in the three different temporary work agencies are experiencing motivation?

As analytical tools, we used concepts and theories of the intrinsic and extrinsic motivation based on Self-Determination theory.

The results of this study showed no distinct differences between the intrinsic and extrinsic motivation of all consultants, but in general the intrinsic motivation was experienced slightly higher rated. The consultants appeared to be aware of what was expected of them and communication was valued fairly well. A positive attitude towards the organization was that the consultants were the least satisfied with, in our study. Our conclusion is that the intrinsic and extrinsic motivations interact with each other, depending on the work situation.

Sammanfattning

Syftet med denna studie var att kartlägga konsulternas syn på den inre och yttre motivationen i bemanningsföretag. Vi undersökte motivationen på tre bemanningsföretag för att se om det fanns någon skillnad i hur de motiverar deras konsulter. Den inre motivationen handlar om det spontana egna intresset medan den yttre uppstår från omgivningens omständigheter.

För att uppnå syftet har vi använt oss av en enkätundersökning med 42 frågor riktade till konsulterna för att fånga deras attityder till motivationsfenomenet.

Följande frågeställningar besvaras i studien;

- Hur upplever konsulterna i bemanningsföretagen sin motivation och finns det några bakgrundfaktorer som får betydelse?

- Finns det några skillnader i hur konsulterna i de tre olika bemanningsföretag upplever motivationen?

Som analysverktyg har vi använt oss av begrepp och teorier om den inre och yttre motivationen som bygger på Self-Determination theory.

Resultatet av studien visar inte på några markanta skillnader mellan den inre och yttre motivationen hos samtliga bemanningsföretag, men den inre motivationen upplevdes lite starkare. Konsulterna visade sig vara medvetna om vad som förväntades av dem och kommunikationen värderades relativt bra. En positiv inställning till organisationen var det som konsulterna var minst nöjda med enligt vår studie. Vår slutsats blev att den inre och yttre motivationen samspelar med varandra, beroende av arbetssituationen.
