Bshs 471 - Motivating employees can be challenging, and it is a concern for many managers and supervisors. Exploring ways to motivate employees as well as keeping the morale up in the workplace can benefit both managers and employees. In this case study, Captain Edith Strong needs to find ways to bring up morale and motivate her patrol department.
Cja484 - Some of the problems Captain Strong is facing are low morale, officers viewing their jobs as dissatisfying, long response time, and increase in disability claims, complaints by citizens, and high turnover rate.
In an attempt to address these concerns, Captain Strong would need to determine the underlying problem to grasp a hold, and determine a course of action to take to help with the low morale as well as the job dissatisfaction in her patrol department.
Cja 484 - One way to address this concern is by reducing the workloads. Allowing overtime for off-duty officers could help out the department, which is much needed. In doing this, this would bring about job satisfaction, increase morale, and decrease disability claims.
A workplace environment should be conducive for employees to learn, grow, and opportunities for advancement. Employee motivation is essential to the success of any company. According to More, Vito and Walsh (2012), motivated employees are in a state of tension created by an unsatisfied need which could lead to creation of drives until the need is satisfied and tension is reduced. In an effort to motivate her employees, the first step is to allow officers to interact with one another while on duty. In doing this, officers will have the opportunity to unwind from the stress of work while interacting with other fellow officers which would increase employee motivation.
