Employees believe that nature of work and promotion in the organisation highly influences their level of performance.

Therefore, there is relationship between motivation and performance, and motivation does have effect on employees’ performance. The study recommends that ZSSF should come out with revised and improved guidelines on how promotions and study leave with/without pay are done. Not only that but also ZSSF should consider the need to make upward adjustment in allowances, retirement benefits, and provide affordable housing for newly posted employee, there should be regular In-service training for new and existing employees to give them opportunity to improve and develop their practical and managerial skills and should invest more on staff trainings.
