Nida Zafar, Sana Ishaq, Shaista Shoukat, Muhammad Rizwan


This study specifically examines the impact of different variables like extrinsic reward (Pay), intrinsic reward (Appreciation), training and expectancy on employee motivation and impact of employee motivation on job satisfaction and knowledge transfer. The general purpose of this study is to motivate employees. If employees are motivated, they will be satisfied by their jobs and if they are satisfied by their job then they will work hard to attain organizational goals and if goals are achieved then organization will get profit. The current research is descriptive in its nature. We select the sample from different sectors in Pakistan. We select the sample of 200 respondents from population for the collection of data and to check the response of different employees. For this purpose, we structured a self- administrated questionnaire and filled it from the right respondent for true results. We use Regression analysis in this study. This analysis is very important to check the confidence of the study from different respondents. Due to this analysis, we found that Pay and Appreciation are not directly effecting the employee motivation. Job satisfaction also has no direct link with employee motivation but training of employee, expectancy and knowledge transfer have direct relationship with employee motivation. These three variables help a lot to motivate an employee.
