|dc.description.abstract||The purpose of this research was to determine if motivation had any influence on
productivity in a merged real estate company. A secondary purpose of this research
was also to determine the influence of commitment on motivation and productivity.
A questionnaire was designed by the researcher emanating from the literature
review addressing the variables of motivation, productivity and commitment. The
questionnaire consisted of 58 questions: 4 demographical questions and 54
questions on the three variables of motivation, productivity and commitment.
Frequency analyses were used to determine the results from the questionnaire on
the three variables of motivation, productivity and commitment.
Participants in the research included 315 employees of the 524 employees of the
real estate company. These employees were located in the Carlton, Inland and the
Corporate offices that are situated in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Bloemfontein and
The results showed a direct link between motivation, commitment and productivity
based on aspects like training, work experience, work knowledge, culture and
tradition, leadership styles and the understanding of information systems.
A limitation of this research entailed that additional research will be needed on
mergers in real estate companies seeing that this study is not a representative
sample of all mergers in real estate companies.||en_US
