Work motivation past, present and future
A major theme of this book is that contextual factors exact nontrivial inuences on employee motivation. Contributing to this theme, the present chapter examines employee motivation in the context of work groups and teams. Following others (e.g., Kozlowski & Bell, 2003), we use the terms work groups and work teams interchangeably, and dene them as “a distinguishable set of two or more people who interact, dynamically, interdependently, and adaptively toward a common and valued goal/ objective/mission, who have each been assigned specic roles or functions to perform, and who have a limited life-span of membership” (Salas, Dickinson, Converse, & Tannenbaum, 1992, p. 4).
