Employee Engagement Begins with Discovering Intrinsic Motivation.

What are Motivators
and Identities?


Motivators are unique, fundamental drivers that all human beings share in common. There are 23 common workplace motivators (core drivers) which are all positive concepts.


Motivators cluster together into 5 different identities. These are archetypes and each of us will inevitably tend to have stronger associations with some of these types over others.

The Motivators Assessment was created based on the largest and longest study ever conducted on workplace motivation.

The Science of Motivation

This data was the foundation for the Motivators Assessment. So yeah, it's research-backed!

Motivators Assessment FAQs

How does the Motivators Assessment compare to other assessments?

Where Strengths-based assessments (such as Gallup’s CliftonStrengths) measure talents (what we’re good at), and Personality-based assessments (such as DISC, Color Code, etc.) help you understand how you interact with others (who we are), motivators show you what you’re passionate about, what you enjoy at work, and what really drives you—at a very detailed level.

How does the Motivators Assessment tie to employee engagement?

The Motivators Assessment ties to employee engagement as it helps identify what drives and motivates individual employees. For example, some employees may be primarily motivated by recognition and achievement, while others may be driven by a sense of purpose or autonomy. Understanding these motivators allows managers to create environments that cater to employees’ intrinsic motivators, thus increasing their engagement.

Do motivators change?

Yes! Unlike our personalities and strengths, motivators can change. The Motivators Assessment measures what’s most important to you in your work right now. What’s important today may not be as important in the future. While some motivators may remain constant throughout our lives, other motivators can change frequently.

How often should I take the Motivators Assessment?

It depends. Typically, most individuals check the assessment a couple of times a year. However, as new events in our lives and jobs occur it could change our motivators more rapidly.

Do I have to be a working adult for this to apply?

No. While the Motivators Assessment was built to help working adults, many of the concepts are universal. As such, individuals who are not in the workforce will still benefit. Thousands of students and teenagers have taken the assessment and found it very confirming and insightful.

What languages is the Motivators Assessment available in?

The Motivators Assessment is currently available in English, Spanish, Hebrew, and Turkish, with French, Japanese, Chinese, and Hungarian in development.

I love this assessment. This is a brilliant, practical, and engaging guide to sculpting the career you want and getting any employee more engaged.
