Abstract

The modern management theories show that workers perform best when they are happily engaged in what they do. The management of human productivity is all about advancing human factors which cause the employees’ welfare and reasonableness at work. These factors combine the context of work suction: the gumption, devote and getting absorbed in work. Single human competencies and human resource development of employees have strong connection not only to the organizational business performance, but also the quality of working life and organizational development, organizational creativity and innovations. The aim of developing personnel management lay in the deepest heart of organizational productivity and business efficiencies. The way in which an organization manages its human resources is also one of the centrally important factors to execution of its business strategy. When optimizing working life and organization’s productivity, the look turns to qualified management.

The strategic management of personnel management includes the deep understanding of grounds and consequences of human behavior amongst working context. In optimal circumstances, human will be effective and innovative employee, when the demands and responsibilities as human being, as a family member and as a team member will be in optimal balance with working life. Opportunities for personal and occupational development and experience of success will cause work productivity, product quality and working flow. In my research I have tried to find means to improve the performance of Caritas Palvelut Corporation so, that the corporation’s vision settled for the future can be reached. I’ve tried to find out what are the effective human resources development processes, that focus on the development of organization specific ambition and intrinsic motivation drivers. I have research the aspects of lived workplace experiences including motivation drivers and every day welfare, cognitive participation like ambition stimulus, group coherence and management aspects related.

I have found out, that good organizational culture verifies individuals’ willingness and talents to success together, I’ve noticed that workplace stimuli does not cause any occupational ambitions. Ambition and intellectual curiousness seem to be related more on working joy and inner reward of working tasks, than any kind of managerial approach or external factor. My research evidences, that belonginess to a group does not correlate to working joy, but rather management satisfaction and experience of knowledge leverage inside the organization. My research also verifies that the workers of target organization are willing to carry out responsibilities without too much guiding. On the other hand, working demands are seen to be adequate low. Positive managerial approach seems to correlate most favourable outcomes, but according to previous academic studies the level of managerial demands also matter. The occupational self-esteem and preciousness of one’s work relate to knowledge of one’s role in the team and organizational entity. These factors together correlate strongly with expressions of rewarding and gladness among work. Since the spirit of instrinsic motivation seems to be stemming from personal traits, the quality of working life will have only limited means for the enhancement. Still, person’s social environment and organizational culture can have a significant effect on person's level of intrinsic motivation. In organizational context very small push and moves to the desirable direction may have remarkable outcomes. Therefore, management should be aware of the motivational drivers and existing values among working contexts.
