Does Work Motivation affect Employee Loyalty towards Employers? (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to analyze which kind of work motivation was the strongest predictor to index for work loyalty. The sample was employees that worked at least part time (50%) and had been employed by the same employer for at least one year. The participants were women and men in the ages between 21 to 66 years. The survey was based on The Multidimensional Work Motivation Scale (MWMS) and five additional items about work loyalty from Tseng and Wu’s (2017) survey. The survey generated 95 survey responses of which 80 were complete. The analyses were carried out in IBM SPSS Statistics 24 and the results showed that the dimensionintrinsic motivationwas the strongest predictor to work loyalty. Further analyses showed that the factor identified regulationwas the strongest predictor to work loyalty of the dimension intrinsic motivationassociated factors. A negative significant correlation was demonstrated between the dimension amotivationand work loyalty. Since employees are one of the most important assets to an organization, it is essential that HR work together with managers to promote employees’ intrinsic motivation to create loyal employees.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka vilken sorts arbetsmotivation som starkast predicerade index för arbetslojalitet. Urvalet för studien var anställda som arbetade minst deltid (50%) och som hade varit anställda hos samma arbetsgivare minst ett år. Deltagarna var kvinnor och män mellan 21 till 66 år. Enkäten i föreliggande studie baserades på Multidimensional Work Motivation Scale (MWMS) som mätte arbetsmotivation och ytterligare fem påståenden som mätte arbetslojalitet från Tseng och Wu (2017) studie. Enkäten genererade 95 enkätsvar varav 80 var fullständiga. Analyserna genomfördes i IBM SPSS Statistics 24 och resultatet visade att dimensionen intrinsic motivation(inre motivation) starkast predicerade arbetslojalitet. Vidare analyser visade att identified regulation(identifieringspåverkan) var den faktor som starkast predicerade arbetslojalitet av dimensionen intrinsic motivationtillhörande faktorer. En negativ signifikant korrelation påvisades mellan dimensionen amotivationoch arbetslojalitet. Eftersom arbetstagare är en av de viktigaste tillgångarna som en organisation har är det väsentligt att HR tillsammans med chefer arbetar aktivt med att främja arbetstagares inre motivation för att således skapa lojala arbetstagare.
