With the current trend towards providing support for assertions in the news, social media, academics, and business (i.e., analytics) learning to find support for your statements is a valuable skill. In this Discussion you will get some practice finding support for the topic provided as well as some practice applying a model to explain your response to a query.
Part 1: Supporting Assertions
Go to the Library following the instructions above, and look for peer-reviewed research articles regarding the topic of: “Better salary and benefits motivate better employee performance.”
It does not matter whether the peer-reviewed research found support or not for this statement.
Your job is to:
- Choose an article not used by another student in this Discussion, and report the findings using an in-text citation (see the Learning Activity), and accompanying reference in APA format. (Hint: In research studies, you can look at the Abstract section at the beginning or in the final pages where the summarized results are usually found.)
Part 2: Applying the Job Characteristics Model
- Discuss your current or past job in terms of the Job Characteristics Model to explain why you were or are currently motivated and satisfied or not, with the work.
