Abstract

This quantitative research investigated the correlation between employee motivation, job reengineering, and the perception of job satisfaction among the civilian employees of the Department of Defense located in Washington, D.C., United States. The theoretical foundation for the study was rooted in Deci and Ryan's (1985; 2000) self-determination theory of motivation. The researcher utilized a non-experimental correlational research design and an appropriate non-probability convenience sampling method to collect data from fifty-five (55) participants. The multidimensional work motivation, job diagnostic, and the job satisfaction scales were used to measure the variables. Non-parametric tests were used to measure the correlation between the variables and three hypotheses were tested. The results showed a strong and positive relationship exists between employee motivation, job reengineering, and the perception of job satisfaction. These findings suggest that business leaders and human capital managers of private and government enterprises may use the study as a focal point to understand a person-job fit, establish lean organizational efficiencies, and formulate strategies to improve motivation and reduce turnover.
