Professor Gerchikov decided to develop the concept of motivation with which one could improve the efficiency of the people. In the last years of his life (Researcher died last year), he worked at the Department of Human Resource Management at the State University – Higher School of Economics. 'When he was called a thinker, he was angry and said:' I'm first and foremost engineer and always think about how to do, not how to explain it''- recalls the student Gerchikova Alexei Rebrov. Finally, the concept has matured in the early 1990s. After spending thousands of interviews with employees at various levels, has come to Gerchikov concluded that there are five types of motivation. For people such as the instrumental work itself is of no value: they only need money. Such a person would 'plow' with the maximum return on any work, as long as he paid well. An employee with a professional motivation, on the contrary, values, not money, but the content of the work itself.
He seeks to prove that he can do the job that not everyone is under power. A person with master's motivation tends to assume full responsibility for it. He is ready to do the job with maximum efficiency, without insisting on it particularly interesting or highly paid, but without any control from outside. It would seem the perfect employee, but the 'master' is very difficult to manage – he does not suffer when they are commanded. Patriotic worker type in the first place wants to be needed in your organization.
