The Science of Motivation

Every person on this planet has a thumb-print-like makeup of what makes him or her most happy 9-to-5 (and in the rest of life), and those prints vary considerably. In other words, each individual is driven by a unique set, or blend, of internal and external drivers.

When people’s jobs give them the opportunity to do more of the kinds of things that satisfy their key motivations, they are happier and more engaged in their work. Unfortunately, most people don’t have a clear understanding of what their strongest Motivators are or how to put those passions to use in their daily work.

So, we set out to answer three fundamental questions:

  1. What helps people feel engaged, enabled, and energized in their daily work?
  2. What factors increase or decrease levels of job satisfaction and motivation?
  3. What is it that makes people want to quit a job?

Based on the results of workplace interviews with more than 1 million people, FindMojo created the Motivators Assessment, the world’s most extensive and scientific assessment to help individuals identify their unique blend of core workplace Motivators.

Combined with the data and insights of the Motivators Platform, we provide managers and leaders with the tools to create cultures where employees feel that what they do everyday matters and makes a difference.
