In relation to motivational factors, the respondents have been consistent with the existing literature that “respect” is a basic employee need and that any time that employees feel that they respected by their superiors, they give more  of their energy and even invest their own resources and time in their jobs. The research has noted that the respect which inspires employees is common courtesies, attention and taking employee’s suggestions and requests seriously and this positively motivate employees.
