Abstract


The motivation influences the improvement of work efficiency and creativity, improvement of working life quality and successfulness of a company. In order to dobusiness successfully, every organization should take care of its employees’ needs. Satisfying the needs is one of the most important influences on motivation. The aim of this research is to determine the order of satisfying the needs which are the most significant as far as the employees’ motivation is concerned, and to determine whether the connection among the length of years of service, gender, age, professional qualifications and hierarchy of needs exists. This research is a part of a wider research whose aim has been to form more pleasant, safer and more efficient working environment and conditions. The research was conducted in 2014 and 2015 in the company Port of Adria AD Bar. A specially constructed questionnaire for this purpose was being used. Interviewing was performed on 184 employees. As it was expected, the obtained results showed that salary was the biggest motivator for them.
