Analysis of motivation and individual values with MiWay
In modern work environments, values, motivation for action and convictions play a very important role. The desire to have work that brings continuous joy to one’s life grows for many people. Similarly organizations recognize more clearly that employees who are able to live and work in accordance with their values are more satisfied, motivated and efficient. Professional contentment and success go hand in hand with the fit between one’s individual values and behavior on one side and the occupational environment and its demands on the other side. Therefore it can be important for organizations and its members to be aware of the aspects that are motivating and demotivating to people who work within the organization.
However not only the organization’s culture and general values play an important role in the professional everyday life but especially the specific requirements of a concrete position regarding the motivation, motives and beliefs of the person who holds this position. MiWay® offers a fast and straightforward analysis of the work preferences of a person in order to get an insight in the professional value system. It was developed based on developmental-psychological research and is a user-friendly and universally available online tool. In a web-based testing procedure that takes only 30 minutes to complete, participants are asked about their personal motives and ideals with regard to their professional life.
