Student thesis: Master's Thesis


The knowledge and the understanding of human and organizational motivation have been suffering evolutions throughout history. What once motivated employees tend to have a different meaning today. We are living in a time of uncertainty and doubts coming from a crisis not only economic and financial but also a crisis of values, identity and personality, which affects the wellbeing of the Portuguese. This research aims at connecting existing theories in the field of motivation, including feelings and experiences of six Portuguese professionals coming from different areas and with diverse profiles. The primary goal is to understand which aspects are inherent to the motivation of these six professionals.
