This paper examines the influence of motivation on organizational performance of private organizations in Tanzania. 2 Competitiveness is defined as a company’s ability to maintain and gain market share in its industry. (Noe et al., 2010 and Schermerhorn, 2010). Nowadays, more and more companies are starting to understand that the real engine of their competitiveness and hence profit making machine are the employees, not the financial capital that they are trying to multiply through their everyday activities (Wanda, 2005). Employees, therefore, are looked upon as an unmatched essential resource of an organization; hence their work performance improvement is one of the major fields which require concentration in successful organizations (Markova and Ford, 2011 and Fisher, 2012). Among the steps taken by organizations to improve employees work performance is providing motivations to their employees (Barney and Ricky, 2004; Caliskan, 2010; Appian et al., 2013 and Nadeem et al., 2014).
Motivated employees build willingness to use their creativities, abilities and knowhow in favor of the organization (Markova and Ford, 2011) and it is related to productivity, organizational commitment and retention of the employees and hence their work performance increases (William, 2011 and Perera et al., 2014). A numberless of factors motivate people at work, some of which are tangible, such as money, and some of which are intangible, such as a sense of achievement (Sector, 2003). Although, employees obtain satisfaction from their work, or places of work, for different reasons, this study was concerned specifically with an assessment of the impact of employee motivation, and relating this to employees work performance. The primary point of emphasis is that the accomplishment of any business is greatly reliant on the inputs of its workers, and that such inputs are indomitable to a great individual quality, and of those aspects of the worker’s job environments that inspire them to devote extra substantial and intellectual energy into their job. In this aspect the organization’s objectives can be pursued and achieved. Motivation is therefore viewed as key determinants of organizational success on work performance.
