Staff motivation in small food manufacturing enterprises

By Richard Bent, Claire Seaman and Arthur Ingram

Abstract

Examines the factors which affect staff motivation and satisfaction in small food businesses. Explores previous theories of motivation.

Results emphasise the importance of the management style of the owner/manager particularly when it comes to factors such as ``lack of\ud appreciation'', ``poor communication'' and ``training''
