Motivation among NASA government contractors
MetadataShow full item record
There are many government standards and regulations that even contractors must follow. This makes it difficult for contracting companies to have the same incentives that other private companies provide for their employees that keeps them motivated. A survey was conducted among NASA government contractors, mainly Engineering and Science Contract Group (ESCG) contractors to get their perspective on the work motivation they have working in the space industry. This report will discuss some of the motivation theories proposed in industrial psychology as well as the benefits offered by ESCG and will be compared with the results from the survey. Lastly there will be recommendations on how to improve the benefits offered or lack thereof by ESCG that could improve the motivation in the workplace.
