ABSTRACT
The article presents a study on the different approaches for employee motivation in business enterprises. In a sequence of motivated behavior, a person uses the information available to him to make decisions about what to do in an attempt to achieve goals that he expects will lead to the desired satisfaction. The field of motivation can be divided broadly, from the terms of needs involved, into two parts: intrinsic motivation which can be referred to the person who engages in an activity to feel competent and self-determining in relation to the activity and extrinsic motivation referring to extrinsic drive reduction like hunger, thirst and material rewards.
