Motivation is an inner force that drives individuals to accomplish personal and organizational goals. 

Motivators are the factors that stimulate desire and energy in people to be continually interested and committed to a goal or task. Career motivators have a deep impact in shaping the graph of an individual’s work-life. 

Each of us has a unique set of needs, desires and rewards that make us work with enthusiasm. What might drive one person may not impact another at all. This report identifies and describes the motivators that are likely to influence a candidate’s motivation at the workplace. It provides a detailed summary of the candidate’s motivators and give recommendations regarding how you can keep the candidate motivated. Providing your employees with what motivates them will make them more productive and more satisfied. 
The Mettl Motivation Inventory measures a person’s level of motivation across eight motivators. When interpreting the results, it is important to remember that the scores are not good or bad, only more or less appropriate to certain types of work. 

Since the results are based on one's own view of behavior, the accuracy of the results depends upon both honesty and self-awareness while taking the test. The results are just recommendations and suggestive in nature, and the final discretion of selecting, rejecting or training the candidate lays with the management authorities. Mettl does not owe the responsibility of selecting or rejecting the candidate, solely based on the assessments.

Organizational Pointers

The Need For Mastery
Most people aspire to course through their lives while erecting consistent milestones. People with a high need for achievement often look for such opportunities and unlike the people who have the basic interest to learn a skill, such people aspire to achieve a level of mastery that puts them at par with the best in the industry. Such people, other than being highly sort after, ensure better quality and performance levels in the Organization.

Security and Stability

The Roof above the Head
Many people tend to make long term goals both personal and professional and in such cases, they desire a convincing if not fully clear picture of their future in the current organization. This not only fosters a spirit of commitment to the organization but it also increases the person's attachment for the organization's goals and objectives. Such people generally make a good point of reference for the organization to consult while making long term policies that require maximum employee participation and minimum attrition.
