The Effects of Bureaucracy on Employee Motivation


The Effects of Bureaucracy on Employee Motivation

Logo for The Effects of Bureaucracy on Employee Motivation
A monotonous day in the cubicle is made all the more aggravating by the managements bureaucratic attitude. Peters superiors repeatedly remind him to read a memo he has already read, concerning a minor mistake he already corrected. He loses any motivation to do a good job because no one listens to what he is saying or values his contributions.
