Dear Sanjeev, Ladies and Gentlemen,

1. The aim of any organisation is to achieve continuous maximum output. This needs some kind of machinery or implements on the one hand. And on the other hand, to utilise these to optimum effect, they need personnel or ‘Human Resources’.

2. While machinery / implements are important and need to be of good quality, they can only produce quality product depending on the quality of the human resources employed. Good implements in the hands of poorly selected, poorly trained and poorly motivated employees will yield poor output, leading to losses to the detriment of the organisation.

3. Hence, it is obvious that employees are ‘Key’ to the productivity of any organisation. Where good machinery / implements require monies to purchase off the shelf and install, human resources, have to be dealt with in greater complexity.

4. HR Managers are key figures in hiring the correct employees, breaking them into the culture of the organisation, training them, retaining them and looking after their welfare to keep them motivated to perform to optimum levels. Any compromise on these issues, lead to breakdowns / slowdowns which ultimately result in irreversible downward spirals! Hence, HR Managers by default, are key to the well-being of any organisation! They draw their inspiration from both, satisfied employers as well as satisfied employees.

5. It is obvious that they need to be acknowledged for their importance and demonstrated competence.

6. Hence the bottom-line is that ‘It is important to keep HR Managers well motivated to perform to peak levels’. And to achieve it the primary tool is appreciation and full backing by the organisation. The icing on the cake is ‘A happy, appreciative, satisfied, loyal and motivated lot of employees’ and 'Optimum Production'!

7. It is vicious circle but fortunately it is one that works to the advantage of everyone!

With warm winter regards.

Salary is the mail component. Ofcourse even other components like Job profile, Present boss, existing Team, and social benfits are also requiired to keep employee motivated

Dear Sanjeev,
your question is good,as a HR professional my opinion is that only motivate people can motivate others so following are some factors who motivate to HR :
1.Aim & Learning
2.Challenges and new opportunities
3.New initiatives
4.Best work and appreciation
5.Job satisfaction & improve job performance
And also that my learning and experience satisfies me as well as others (employees,workers,colleagues,management and may be unprofessional persons who deal with my daily routine, it gives me a lot of happiness and a motivation to do better and better) and my market value (monitory value) is also motivate to me.
These are my view's hope you will like............

The prime motivation in HR for me is I am dealing with human beings, whether they are uneducated, lowly educated, or highly qualified and experienced, dealing with each person as a human being in terms of official and personal issues gives me a learning and insight into a human perspective which can see various angles and depths. HR is a truly blessed profession. It has its own irritating moments as well for many, but when you are unbiased, not taking any sides, do not show any favoritism to anybody, one stands tall and recognised.

Dear Mr Sanjiv & Fraternity Friends,
I think the discussion drifted from the very simple question but equally difficult to answer. The HR Manager's job is challenging where he/she has to balance the expectation of both employer and employees and achievement of the same is a motivating factor for me. Then, it depends on so many factors what motivates whom, whether he is HR man or in other function, it will be very difficult to generalise !
Hope you agree with me.

Agreed and that is the reason i have emphasized on Need and Requirement of Employee and Employers both. Also this comes under the most challenging job of HR Professionals in today's modern HR.
As we all know that
Job performance =f(ability)(motivation)
= Employees best contribution /best fit for Organization which are the base of HR/HRM/HRP/HRD and biggest challenge.
And we require these to achieve our Organization Goals, Mission & Vision and the society welfare (beneficial to Employees for their Needs)

Hi all..
If you motivates some one for better performance, retention, to do the good job for the organisation and taking care of employees welfare by which employees are satisfied, convinced the management for your proposal for better increments etc, that is good enough to motivate yourself as an HR Professional.
As far as the 'Cite HR' is concerned, always, I mean to say every day... there is a new topics to learn, new views to go through..... for sharpening ourselves in HR field, which are more than enough motivational ways.

Dear Sanjeev ,
in my view I can work for 15 hours if it required by my organisation . but in return i will expect a motivating words with a genuine smile from my boss as a recognisation of my hard work and independent job profile (My work should be uninterrupted by anyone and whatever the result i should get it) and followed by monitory benefits and self esteem needs.

As we all know that the managers are responsible for the motivation of employees but the question what Mr. Sanjeev has raised is what motivate HR Managers/Professionals to do this work, what motivates them to get the work done by their employees with efficiency and why made them feel that it is required.
These are the basic questions, we are discovering the answer for and wanna discuses here..being an individual or employee we can say what we want but being a Manager what made us feel to motivate the employees.
Human Resources sets the context and it sets the tools to manage the motivation, but the managers have to play their role and we are discussing here the role of a MANAGER.
I would like to say thanks to all the members who have contributed here and to Mr. Sanjeev to raise this question but I want more views on that.
Think about role of a manager “What Motivates him/her?”
