Different things motivate different people. Research suggests that people have ‘intrinsic motivators’ - those elements in a role that are needed for job satisfaction. Facet5 Work Preferences identifies intrinsic motivators, as well as the things that tend to be demotivating. This is useful during career transition or to supplement job search activities.
- Power - a person's need to be able to influence events and the people around them.
- Participation - a person's need to be with people and part of the scene.
- People - a person's need to feel they are contributing to the world at large and are helping to produce a 'better' society.
- Process - a person's emphasis on how things are done and the way in which a business is run, where there is a strong preference for efficient systems and processes and a respect for position and experience.
Facet5 research has also identified specific 'job elements' which are linked to each of these motivators. This report integrates core motives (derived from Facet5 data), and identifies those aspects that an individual would want in a role and those which would be frustrating to them. By comparing responses to a database of known preferences, Work Preferences provides clear information about the specific job elements that are likely to appeal.
The Work Preferences report is a standard output with a Facet5 personal profile.
