Promotion as a motivational tool based on the example of Antonin Forest Inspectorate
Languages of publication
At present, motivation is gaining a special significance in the organization management process. It has become a management function that encourages people to work. The objective of a well-organized motivation system is to determine rewards at a level appreciated by the subordinate and to set ambitious but achievable goals. One of a number of such rewards is the promotion understood as moving a person to a higher position in the organization's hierarchy. An organization in which this type of motivational tool plays an important role is the State Forests National Forest Holding (hereinafter: the State Forests) - an organizational unit having no legal personality and operating for over ninety years. The purpose of this paper is to explain motivation techniques used in the State Forests based on the example of Antonin Forest Inspectorate. The study focuses on the promotion as the most important and most effective motivational incentive for the State Forests staff (15.32% of the surveyed said so).
