Keywords:Employee Motivation, Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, Work from Home, Work Shift, Covid-19
The purpose of this paper is to examine current theories about how to keep staff members motivated in trying situations, especially in light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. This investigation uses subjective methodologies and relies on recent literature. Because of the heightened stress and uncertainty caused by the pandemic, employee motivation has been significantly impacted. Employers can help their staff by being transparent with them, being accommodating, offering support, and giving them praise. Regular check-ins, remote work options, mental health resources, and acknowledging workers' efforts under trying conditions are all ways to accomplish this. The study's emphasis is on Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs theory and is based on secondary data. The research suggests working from home and scheduling shifts as methods for keeping employees inspired in their job. The researchers watched how workers dealt with unforeseen circumstances and made suggestions for potential jobs, like rearranging duties or allowing for remote work. The research has important ramifications for academics and professionals in the field because it offers insightful information about economics and business.
