An Analysis of Differences in Work
Public and Private Sector Organizations
This is a research
study that was conducted in Pakistan. Its main purpose is to cite the
differences in work motivation between the public and private sector in the
country. It has been likely observed that the concept of employee motivation
remains to be neglected in the country and many employees are still working
with less motivation and satisfaction at the workplace.
The study is mainly
a quantitative one, which made use of the regression method in order to investigate
the relationship between the extrinsic and intrinsic rewards with work
motivation in both public and private sectors.
The results of the
study reveal that there are similarities of reward factors between the private
and public sector when it comes to employees’ motivation in the extrinsic
aspect. These similarities include the following: salary and benefits,
insurance and medical facilities, bonus and overtime, status and designation,
accommodation, work autonomy, achievement, responsibility, team planning,
development programs. However, there are also some differences in the intrinsic
motivation rewards as it should indicate that the private employees are more likely
to value advancement opportunities and intrinsic work
values than those in the public sectors. Thus, it should reveal a proof that
the people working in the private sector are more likely to stay committed in
their work than the employees who work in the Pakistani government.
This study is assumed essential as this should provide insights on
how the employees should be motivated in accordance to their line of employment
as well as the place of their work. It should generally imply that there is a
need for public sector employees to be implemented with the right motivational
rewards than those in the private sector.
