Efficacy of inspirational motivation on the performance of public health workers in mid-north of Uganda

Purpose: This study sought to determine the efficacy of inspirational motivation on the performance of middle-level Public Health Workers (PHWs) in Lira District Local Government. Specifically, the study aimed to: determine the degree of inspirational motivation among ML-PHWs in Lira District; determine the level of performance among ML-PHWs in Lira District; and investigate the effect of inspirational motivation on the performance of ML-PHWs in Lira District. Research methodology: The study adopted a cross-sectional survey design while incorporating both quantitative and qualitative methods. The study used stratified and simple random sampling procedures to select health facilities, supervisors and ML-PHWs; a total of 164 respondents were selected.  Results: The findings suggest that inspirational motivation has a significant effect on the performance of ML-PHWs ( p<0.01). Limitations: This study only focused on one construct of transformational leadership style (inspirational motivation), yet there are several constructs of that style, which may affect the performance of PHWs. Contribution: The findings of this study can be useful to public service managers wishing to enhance the performance of PHWs using limited resources.

Examining the quality of work life: empirical testing indicators in the public organisation

Purpose: The present study aimed to identify employees’ quality of work life indicators in public organisations and provide necessary context to improve system accountability and employees’ needs in organisations. Research methodology: To identify quality of work life indicators, authors studied theoretical research basics entirely and by considering elites’ ideas, identified main indicators by a descriptive – survey technique. Result: Based on research findings, 15 constituents were identified as work life quality indicators. Research results indicate undesired quality of work life among employees at public organisations. Of identified constituents, Safe and healthy working conditions and organisational conflict are the most important and job satisfaction and Pay/benefits are the lowest important factors. Limitations: The results only extend the understanding of the role of quality of work life in organisational effectiveness and have implications for human resource managers that may not be applicable for other positions. Contribution: The study results help organisations identify the elements that affect the QWL and help them plan to increase organisational effectiveness by increasing employee satisfaction and motivation.
