Abstract

Motivation is a set of energetic forces that comes from within and outside of the individual’s being in order to establish work-related behaviours and to determine the form, direction, duration and intensity of these behaviours. As such, it becomes a factor that exerts a driving force on our actions and work and also becomes an important element in the productivity of employees. Therefore, the performance of the employees is highly concerned by the employer to achieve high performance and job commitment. The employees who are demotivated and lack of commitment can bring a negative effect to the learning platform in the education industry. In other words, the employees’ attitudes will bring effect towards the students in the classroom who are in the process of learning. This will impact the future of the children. Therefore, the correlation between the motivation factors of the employees and job commitment and the ranking of the motivation factors of the employees were able to determine and analyse Stamford College’s scenario. This study focused on the employees at Stamford College which is academic and non-academic staff to answer the questionnaire. These questionnaires contained 3 part sections where the first section covered the 6 independent variables, second section covered the job commitment and third section covered the demographic area. The questionnaire distributed to the employees at Stamford College, Kepong on sampling basis. The results from the study showed that the ‘promotion’ factor is the most important factor to motivate the employees. The results also showed that the motivation factors and job commitment have strong positive relationship and the coefficients between motivation factors and job commitment has shown that it is consistent with the hypotheses of having a significant relationship. Even with a positive relationship between motivation factors and job commitment, due to the limitations faced in this research, further research and more population has been included in the future study for better results and may want to focus on other existing types of motivations.
