    • MOTIVATION PARAMETER FOR EMPLOYEES USING MASLOW’S THEORY Rahul Kumar The objective of the study is to use the traditional Maslow’s needs theory in developing measurement parameters to evaluate motivation levels of the employees of Ambuja Cement Ltd. Kolkata. The purpose of this research AMBUJA CEMENT LTD. is to determine what parameters are in Indicon Viva, 6th floor, 53A, Leela Roy Sarani, need of development to enhance the Kolkata 700019 operational effectiveness and West Bengal eventually maximize employees’ 033 - 24617856 productivity by knowing their needs. 6/23/2012AMBUJA CEMENT LTD.

    • BackgroundThis task will emphasize total self-development of the individual forimproved motivation and organization management. It builds on Maslow’shierarchy of needs theory to examine motivational levels for all levels ofemployees & staff at this organization. The researchers studied theseemployee groups quantitatively using a questionnaire. Using a holisticapproach, this study focused on 15 parameters from Maslow‘s fiveessential needs—the physical, safety, social, esteem, and selfactualization levels. Considerable emphasis was placed on thedevelopment of Maslow‘s principle of ‗‗self-actualization.‘‘ This difficult-to-grasp concept, as Maslow reported, is a prerequisite for enlightenedmanagement. The researchers analyzed employees‘ perceptionsregarding the fulfillment of need parameters and measured theirperception of the importance of those parametersThe application of the findings based on Maslow‘s model directly benefitsthe organizational studied in development programs. It also helps inincreasing morale of needed employeesAccording to Maslow, the desire to pursue the traits of self-actualization bythe ‗‗superior man‘‘ is built on a hierarchy of other needs that emphasizethe essential elements to be satisfied. In the order of their priority, theseneeds are (Maslow 1943): 1. Physical needs—air, water, food, sex, etc., which are basic and most powerful. 2. Safety needs—assurance of survival and continuing satisfaction of basic needs. 3. Social needs—relation to emotional and social grouping, loving, being loved, and fellowship with others. 4. Esteem needs—by self and others, an individual having adequate self-esteem being more capable, confident, and productive. 5. Self-actualization needs—this set includes the characteristics and conditions for advancing self and humanity through elevating enjoy life more (including its pains, sorrows, and troubles and get more out of it.AMBUJA CEMENT LTD.
    • Scope and Objective The objective of the present study is to use the traditional Maslow‘s needs theory in developing measurement parameters to evaluate motivation levels of all employee of this organization. The purpose of this work is to determine what parameters are in need of development to enhance the operational effectiveness and eventually maximize employees‘ productivity. The study plan is to first determine need parameters pertaining to the customized model. These parameters will then be evaluated using a questionnaire survey.AMBUJA CEMENT LTD.
    • MOTIVATION MODEL AND ANALYSIS Questionnaire The questions help to develop a quantitative assessment of motivational parameters being met by current organizational settings. The questionnaire includes 31 questions covering the studied areas of needs. In addition, a parallel set of questions is presented to respondents about the personal value placed on the importance of each of the need parameters. For responding to the questions, a Likert scale is used with seven degrees of intensity of feeling with which the respondents associate their response to the questions. The questions are combined to represent the various need parameters. Table 1 shows the distribution of questions over the study parameters.AMBUJA CEMENT LTD.

    • Evaluation of Quality Index (QI) A quality index is a value for a need parameter developed by averaging scores given by one respondent to the questions relevant to that particular need parameter. The formulation is made as follows: 1- Where QI = instant satisfaction index value from one respondent; n = number of questions involved in the evaluation process; and SQ = score given by a respondent to a question Q. Index values range from a low of 1 to a high of 7. A Group Quality Index (QIg) is then obtained by averaging QIs of all respondents of this particular group. It is important to note that a quality index reflects a measure of the respondent‘s instant perception of an issue—it gauges the instant satisfaction or lack thereof. Evaluation of Relevance Factors (RF) Next, a Relevance Factor (RF) is obtained from the responses to importance questions in a similar way to QIs (by combining responses to questions). The original set of data from questionnaire responses was obtained on a Likert scale (1–7). The relevance factor (RF) reflects the importance of an issue as viewed by a respondent. In analyzingAMBUJA CEMENT LTD.
    • variances (ANOVA) for the obtained RFs, there was no significance in the differences between rates of RFg of surveyed groups. Hence, the presented plot shows only results of the combined groups. Evaluation of Scaled Quality Indexes (SQI) Finally, the quality indexes are scaled over their respective relevance factors (QIg divided by RFg) producing a new set of parameters for a group‘s assessment of the studied needs. This provides a realistic view of the status of need parameters, since now the importance of a need and its actual fulfillment are both measured. To obtain values of SQIg, need category quality indexes for groups are divided by the corresponding category relevance factors (the original RFs on the Likert scale). Hence, SQI is a relative ranking system. To normalize SQI scores between 0 and 100, all SQI scores were divided by an arbitrary ‗‗convenience factor‘‘ of 0.70 for easy comparison and comprehension of the performance of measured parameters (Table 2). QIg SQIg = kt RFg Where SQIg = need category scaled quality index for a group (presented in a percent format); QIg = need category quality index for the group; RFg = need category relevance factor on the Likert scale; and kt = convenience factor (constant equal to 0.70). As a numerical example from any employee‘s data for the category of ‗‗effortlessness,‘‘ we have QIg = 5.8; RFg = 5.25 (shown as 1.25 on the RF shifted scale, Fig. 4);AMBUJA CEMENT LTD.
    • kt = 0.70. Then, (QIg/RFg) kt = 0.7733 (77%). The scaled quality index (SQIg) computes the true performance of a motivation category since it combines the perception of the quality and the relevance of it. Central Tendency Analyzing the questionnaire results proved that the responses follow the central tendency theorem. In each group of answers, most answers clustered around their mean. In such cases, observations were made of all fluctuations because the fluctuations become very important.AMBUJA CEMENT LTD.
    • And therefore, must be analyzed. Initially, standard deviations were computed for fluctuation of data among responses to direct questions by individuals, group responses to direct questions, group QI results, group RF results, and group SQI results. These deviations within groups fluctuate in somehow narrow ranges, and most responses cluster around their means, two facts necessary for central tendency. This places greater emphasis on analyzing even slight fluctuations. For instance, deviations (s) obtained within each need category for QIs were 0.05 # s # 0.21. For SQIs, 0.25 # s # 1.14. FINDINGS FOR QI, RF, AND SQI The results of surveying the technical staff are presented later in chart format. Below, various comparisons are made in the performance of the indexes between the surveyed groups and between the motivationAMBUJA CEMENT LTD.
