The aim of promoting employee motivation is to enhance the level of commitment, increase the level of display of skills, and intelligence of the employees for competitive performances. Therefore motivation is an indispensable arsenal that can be used to unleash the best out of employees of an organization. Based on this, the study was carried out to critically analyze the effect of promoting motivation on the performance level of employees in the Nigerian public sector. Having linked the research work to several theories, the research work was anchored on the two broad theories of process theory and content theory of motivation. The essence of this anchor was because there are peculiarities between the postulations of the theories and the assertion of this study. The research work was given quantitative analysis with the help of data got through primary sources. The primary source of data was via questionnaire instrumentation. The data obtained from these respondents were analyzed descriptively and sub-divided into two sections. The results of the findings revealed that the financial rewards in the Nigerian public sector do not significantly motivate or improve employee performances; it was also revealed that satisfaction of physical needs does not significantly lead to improved performance and lastly it was revealed that public relation does significantly have an impact on employee performance in the public sector. Therefore it was recommended that the government of Nigeria should make financial rewards in the public sector substantial to be able to motivate employees to greater performances. Also, the government should continue to opt for sophisticated public relations channels to continue to evolve and improve the performance level of employees in the public sector. Keywords: Motivation, Employee Performance, Rewards, Promoting.
