Work Motivation. Symposium 33. [Concurrent Symposium Session at AHRD Annual Conference, 2000.]
Three presentations are provided from Symposium 33, Work Motivation, of the Academy of Human Resource Development (HRD) 2000 Conference Proceedings. "An Attitudinal Examination of the Role of HRD in Voluntary Turnover in Public Service Organizations" (Kenneth R. Bartlett, William R. McKinney) compares public service managers who voluntarily left their job in the previous year against a sample of managers in the same or equivalent positions. It finds that job satisfaction did not differ between the two samples, but suggests that shock or trigger events may initiate a series of psychological deliberations that result in a decision to remain or leave. "A Passion for Work: Developing and Maintaining Motivation" (Patricia Boverie, Michael Kroth) presents a model for a transformational process for developing a passion to work substantiated by conducting two studies. Analysis leads to synthesis of five keys for developing passion and occupational intimacy. "The Influence of Multiple Performance Interventions on Employee Turnover: A Case Study" (Tim Hatcher) reports a study that addressed employee turnover in a textile plant as a multi-faceted performance issue and identified causes of turnover through a performance analysis and results of implementation of multiple interventions designed to influence employee turnover. The papers contain reference sections. (YLB)
