Abstract


Careful and appropriate designing of the parts of a job has an impact on the job holder. Literature supports that it determines the effectiveness of job performance, job satisfaction, work commitment and involvement through motivation towards work. The current study aimed to find out the work motivation of teachers teaching in the schools of Jalandhar region of Punjab by calculating motivating potential score (MPS). It is calculated on the data collected from 200 teachers through job diagnostic survey which covers five dimensions of job characteristics model. MPS is calculated using a standardized formula and thereafter the weighted average score of five dimensions and each item within these dimensions is also calculated. Results show very low motivation on all the five dimensions of motivation model i.e. Job Characteristics Model. Results call for a strong need to relook and redesign the job of school teachers. In addition, the paper also deliberated the significance of results with respect to overall management and administration of the schools.
