ABSTRACT

Employee motivation plays an exceedingly important role in moving an organization towards excellence. It is a joint function of ability and motivation. . The target population of this study was managers of 30 large flower farms in the Lake Naivasha region in Naivasha, Nakuru County. This research used a descriptive type of research design because the design provides insights concerning the current status of the phenomenon and to describe what exist in what with respect to variables or conditions in a situation. The survey was conducted by questionnaires which are less intrusive and respondents are free to complete them on own time table. Secondary data was also employed through use of current publications, reports to supplement the primary data received from interviews. Data analysis was done with the help of software programme SPSS version 21 and Microsoft Excel to generate quantitative reports. In addition, inferential statistics was used in the study including multiple regression analysis and ANOVA to determine the effects of motivation on employee productivity among large flower farms in Kenya. The study found out that respondents were comfortable at their work place and they felt motivated to work in their present working conditions. The study also found out that the respondents were happy with the non-monetary Compensation available at work e.g. school fees, canteen subsidy, medical, food hamper. The study recommends that large flower farms should also adopt non-monetary forms of motivation such as recognition of personal efforts and giving employees an opportunity to pursue new challenges by rewarding performing employees and proper remuneration for work well done.

Key words: Motivation on Employee Productivity
