Part-2

 

What Motivated Workers in the Face of a Pandemic?

 

Sometimes it’s easy to figure out what’s going to motivate workers. But at other times it’s nearly impossible to know what would make someone want to persevere in a particular job. During the COVID-19 pandemic, health care workers across the globe stepped up and sacrificed themselves—in ways that the rest of us may never fully grasp—in order to take care of humanity. They exposed themselves and their families to the virus, they worked without proper personal protective equipment (PPE), and they kept at it during gruellingly long shifts, day after day. Reports estimated that health care workers’ infection rates were somewhere between 10% and 20% of the total cases. On the surface, it seemed there were no plausible explanations for why these workers continued to show up to their jobs throughout the crisis.

you will need to do further research beyond reading the chapter.

5.What were the major motivation issues at play in the health care industry according to the major needs-based theories of motivation (Maslow’s hierarchy, McClelland’s acquired needs, and Deci and Ryan’s self-determination)? (Min words 200-300)

6.What do you think were the major equity issues faced by health care workers during the pandemic? (Min words 200)
