ABSTRACT
A model of work motivation is presented that postulates the following five variables as determinants of the force to perform: (a) Task Goal Level, (b) Task Goal Specificity, (c) Task Goal Commitment, (d) Energy Potential, and (e) Perceived Effort Required. Propositions for the model are presented, relevant literature is reviewed, and concepts for the model are operationalized.
