Motivators Assessment


Understand workplace motivation with the Motivators Assessment.

Motivators Assessment

The Motivators Assessment is a self-paced online assessment that helps you discover what motivates you at work. The assessment is based on the theory of self-determination, which posits that seven innate psychological needs motivate human behavior: aesthetic, economic, individualistic, political, altruistic, regulatory, and theoretical.

The assessment takes about 20 minutes to complete and consists of a series of statements about your work motivation. You will be asked to rate each statement on a scale of 1 to 5, indicating how strongly you agree or disagree with it.

Once you complete the assessment, you will receive a personalized report identifying your top motivators. The report also includes tips on how to use your motivators to improve your work performance and satisfaction.

The Motivators Assessment is a valuable tool for anyone who wants to understand what motivates them at work. The assessment can help you:

  • Identify your top motivators
  • Understand how your motivators influence your work behavior
  • Set goals that are aligned with your motivators
  • Make better decisions about your career
  • Improve your work performance and satisfaction

If you are interested in learning more about your work motivation, the Motivators Assessment is a great place to start.

Here are some additional benefits of the Motivators Assessment:

  • It is scientifically validated and reliable.
  • It is easy to use and can be completed in a short amount of time.
  • It provides personalized feedback that can be used to improve your work performance and satisfaction.

Uses for the Assessment

Interpersonal & intrapersonal Communication: This profile provides a helpful tool that can allow two people to understand what aspects of a situation or environment they both appreciate similarly. Understanding what draws two or more people to something can help identify more people who would be likewise inspired, and it helps create synergy and camaraderie. Understanding your attraction to certain activities or causes can be equally important when it comes to understanding the significance of what you do and why you do it. In other words, knowing why you will get out of bed tomorrow morning is not a minor thing. Where other assessment tools like DiSC help explain how someone behaves, the Motivators Assessment explains the ‘why.’

Role Building and Goal Setting and Achievement: When setting goals for yourself or others, it helps to know why you or they would want to achieve the goal in the first place. What is it that the goal addresses that is important? Setting a goal that provides monetary rewards to someone with the altruistic dimension as their highest will not likely generate the anticipated motivation or inspire superior performance. Similarly, incentiv­izing a person who is motivated economically with promises of new relationships and improving society (assuming there is no obvious economic return) will not be a good way to motivate that person. Being aware of and understanding a person’s natural motivation style helps ensure that goals are resonating with them maximally.

Job Selection: Much like creating an ideal role, placing a person in an ideal existing role requires the same level of awareness for four aspects of the role:

  • What the job requires
  • What the job provides
  • What the person requires
  • What the person provides

When you understand all four sides of this equation, you can make more informed decisions about who would be the best fit for which role. Understanding a person’s motivations and drivers is one significant component in filling this need. The Motivators Assessment is researched for Disparate Impact and is validated for hiring.
