Pamela Akinyi Omolo


This study sought to assess the effect that motivation had on the job of workers of the Kenya Commercial Bank in Migori County. The study also focused on the demotivating factors like delay of promotion, no clear career progression, unreasonable load, long working hours and lack of appreciation from the managers. This study adopted a descriptive design because it involved interviewing or administering questionnaire to a sample of individuals ( Orodho, 2003). Simple random sampling was used as no complexities were be involved. All that was needed was a relatively small, clearly defined population (Orodho and Okombo, 2002).. The study employed the use of self administered questionnaire to collect the required primary data. Descriptive statistical analysis technique was employed to obtain useful summary of responses. Statistical Programme of Social Scientists (SPSS) version 17 tool was used to generate data that was presented in tables and piecharts as was necessary. Simple random sampling was used and total sample population was forty five employees. In conclusion, managers should know that employees are motivated by monetary rewards. It is recommended that there is need for managers to have a comprehensive motivation scheme in all aspects of an organization as this is directly proportional to the output of the employees.
