Motivation and Job Satisfaction in the Banking Sector

The success of any organization relies much on the employees and the productivity of the employees. Members of staff who are highly motivated are the key to bringing in high performance to the organization hence there is a constant need to ensure that the spirits of the employees and their satisfaction are always high and that the employees find meaning and purpose in their obs.
