This study was designed to explore the factors influencing employee’s motivation. It specifically aimed at assessing; Financial Incentives, Career development, Promotion Opportunity and Job security regarding with the employee’s motivation. This study based on both quantitative and qualitative research approach. Simple random sampling technique was used to collect data from a sample of 67 respondents. The collected data was analysed using percentages and means by using SPSS. Four objectives were formulated and tested using descriptive and inferential techniques respectively in order to establish the effects of financial incentives, career development, promotion opportunity, job security in employee’s motivation. In the present study, questionnaire and interview were used as instruments of primary data collection. To check for reliability of the study used Cronbach’s Alpha and to check for validity was used for Factor Analysis (KMO). From the findings, it was revealed that workers on every level understand the importance of training in regard to productivity of an organization but also motivate them, financial incentive was seen as the key factor that management should use to motivate their employees’ because workers expect to cover their daily lives and that depends on what they get from work. It enabled HR management to adopt a more focused approach towards motivating employees, where motivational strategies/methods can be better designed to address employees’ specific motivational needs. However previous researches used in this study showed that different results could be obtained from different groups of already working employees. The study therefore can be seen as an introduction to a more detailed study to be carried by future researchers on the field of employee’s motivation.
