Understand What Motivates and Demotivates an Employee or Candidate

The SHL Motivation Questionnaire (MQ) Assesses situations that are likely to increase or reduce the individual’s motivation to work.

The more motivated and engaged your workforce is, the greater your organization’s potential for success. However, motivators, such as recognition, development, and flexibility often differ widely depending on the individual. Thus, assessing for motivation allows an organization to understand what really drives candidates to excel.

The MQ measures 18 dimensions of motivation and provides a comprehensive profile of the motivational factors that affect an individual’s work performance. Candidates read statements that describe a situation or condition and then rate each statement as to how it would affect their motivation to work.

The MQ helps organizations:

  • Understand the link between individual motivation and employee engagement
  • Identify and manage an individual’s strongest motivators and demotivators
  • Improve employee motivation and engagement

The MQ provides a range of easy-to-use reports, to support effective decision making, called the MQ Report Pack, which includes:

  • The Profile Chart—Mapping the candidate’s motivational drivers against a selected benchmark
  • The Employee Motivation Report—Providing an in-depth and easy-to-understand evaluation of what motivates and demotivates an individual and tips and suggestions for how he or she can be managed
  • The Candidate Motivation Report—Allowing candidates to understand what drives their own motivation and encouraging them to take greater ownership of their development plans.
