Societal Quest - Money!
topic for tonight's Societal Quest: Why is money a motivating factor? is it the only motivating factor?
does money really matter? Fedrick Herzberg's two-factor theory; hygiene factor and motivation factor, mentioned that the motivation factor such as job satisfaction is more important than the hygene factor (money). how well do people agree with this? money is better at attracting and retaining people as oppose to influencing to their job.
so how do we conclude? money MAY be a motivating factor but it is not the only motivating factor. sure money gets us what we desire and makes us happy but there is also other factors to consider, such as the satisfaction of deserving the money we worked hard for. it's not worth it to get paid a huge salary yet the work is overloaded or vice versa. there are more factors that can actually motivate us other than money. make a wise decision when it comes to money.
