What motivates you?
The question of what gets people up for work in the morning is an interesting one. Data from the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) suggests that money is not most people’s main motivator. Instead, reasons include relishing the opportunity to make a difference through their jobs, pursuing an interest or becoming an expert in their field – summed up by the 64 per cent who say they are driven by ‘having a sense of purpose’.
However, even if pay isn’t the dominant driver, the majority of employees wouldn’t say no to a financial boost. Never has this been more true than now as the impact of the Government’s cuts begin to be felt and households feel the pinch of rising prices as inflation creeps up.
