How to get employee motivation training materials that will save you time and money

Employee motivation is one of the most talked about areas in training courses.

Despite this, you might be surprised that when thinking about creating course content, that most people won’t know where to start.

Like most things, there’s an easier option.


Well, we’ve done that hard work for you.

Understand your target audience

Let’s start at the beginning.

Employee motivation relates to the level of commitment and energy that an employee has towards their job. And, it is displayed in how empowered and engaged they fell within their role.

Makes sense?

But how do you share this with your audience?

OK, you can use the content to cut through any confusion around how employees can be motivated. And, you can use the practical exercises to share what motivates employees.

In particular, you can use this training material to improve the skills of managers, team leaders, supervisors and frontline staff that motivate others as part of their role.

Course outline

Leverage these materials to deliver a compelling and practical course on employee motivation.

What is motivation – Courses on employee motivation have been popular in management and employee development circles for a few years now. While many courses have focused on this area, very few have done it any real justice. For the purposes of your courses, you can use the content provided to explore the benefits of a motivated workforce.

Needs and content theories – Basically, you can use the course materials to dig into the main bulk of management and organizational theories on employee motivation. Start by exploring Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs theory. So, as you dive into your topic, the next aim is to examine the Existence-Relatedness-Growth (ERG) theory. As you start to explore the Two Factor theory your audience will gain a better understanding of employee motivation. For best results, you can use the content to discuss the concepts of achievement, power and affiliation. Ultimately, your goal is to share an understanding of needs-based theories. Ideally, the more discussion that you generate with your audience will faciltate the greater the amount of learning achieved.

Process theories – The term “process theories” is a pretty big buzzword when discussing employee motivation within companies. The logical step would be just to follow the slides and participant manual. And, yes this will work too. But you can, and should, go much further than that with the content provided. For best results, you can use the content to explore various process theories such as Equity Theory and Porter and Lawlor’s Expectancy Model. The main purpose of using these theories is to give your audience an understanding of employee motivation. As you bring together these theories your audience should feel better infomed and gain a better understanding of the content. End the course by examining Goal Setting Theory.
