In order to investigate the perceived importance of different factors related to motivation of different groups, 50 mangers, 50 supervisors, and 100 industrial workers selected from four different organisations on a random sampling basis were given a questionnaire for assessment of relative importance of different factors of motivation. The results reveal that each factor is not equally important to all the three groups of subjects in relation to their motivation at work in industry. Sound management principles have been considered as the most important factor for motivation by the managers. On the other hand, job security has been assigned as the most important factor by both the supervisors· and workers in their motivation. While wage has not been considered as an important factor for high motivation but, it has been assigned the most important factor for low motivation by all employees. Level of job in the industrial set up seems to correspond distinctly with various motivating factors.
