Thushel Jayaweera

Abstract


The study tested the relationship between work environmental factors and job performance with work motivation and the extent to which this relationship is mediated by work motivation among a sample of hotel workers in England. In this cross-sectional study, a questionnaire survey was conducted among 254 hotel workers at twenty-five chain hotels in Bristol, England. The results suggest that there is a significant relationship between work environmental factors and job performance and that work motivation mediates the relationship between working conditions and job performance. The results also suggest that there is a significant relationship between work motivation and job performance of the hotel workers. The results point to the importance of working conditions and work motivation in explaining job performance of hotel workers in the framework of work environmental conditions and job performance. The limitations and implications and the study are also discussed.
