Abstract

This study aimed at investigating the impact of motivation on the national employees’ performance in WFP Tanzania. Specifically, the study sought to examine the extent to which financial oriented factors motivates employees performance, investigate the immediate non financial oriented factors that affect employees performance and evaluate WFP working environment and its impact on employee’s performance in the Country Office. To achieve these objectives, case study was used involving WFP Tanzania. Data were collected through semi structured questionnaire, interview, observation, focus group discussion and documentary source. SPSS was used in data analysis in constructing simple frequencies tables and figures for comparison and provision of results in a descriptive and comparative manner. The findings of this study revealed that employees were generally satisfied with their jobs. Conducive working environment, adequate working tools/equipments, performance recognition/honor, challenging job and good working relationships are issues which contributed to that satisfaction. However, concerns were raised such as, limited career development opportunities, nonexistence of loan & promotion, insufficient health benefits coverage, limited trainings and minimal salary increase in base pay. This study recommends that WFP should improve staff skills by strengthening capacity building considering departmental requirements and organizational needs to increase employees’ motivation, productivity and improve the chances of retaining the best talent. Moreover, team building should be a constant goal to cement working relationship, make employees motivated and improve productivity.
