STUDY FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF MOTIVATION IN THE SHIPBUILDING INDUSTRY--PHASE I

The first chapter introduces the study in terms of its purposes and procedures. The next chapter surveys the general literature pertinent to motivation in industry organized according to the research plan of this study. The next chapter reports in depth the results from the current study, including composite data for the total industry, as well as a brief comparison of ten separate local shipyards. Since motivation in industry is a complex phenomenon, for the purpose of this study motivation has been analyzed in terms of relationships to some of its various segments beginning with job satisfaction, the core factor around which all the other dimensions of the motivational process would evolve. The factors, in addition to job satisfaction include job commitment and morale, job importance, working conditions and benefits, workers perceptions of co-workers, promotion, and supervisor-worker relationships.
