Role of gender in predicting correlation between promotion systems and motivation among Lebanese employees
Rushdi Zaiter and Mahmoud Koabaz
This research aimed at investigating gender differences in motivation, in relation to existing promotion systems in the Lebanese workplaces. A survey design method using an online administered questionnaire was used for a sample of Lebanese respondents working at Family Businesses. Significant differences were noticed in motivation between females and males. Females working in Lebanese family businesses are more motivated compared to males when the perceived equity and clarity of promotion systems are low to medium. However, as the equity and clarity of promotion system increase, males become more motivated. This study contributes to understanding gender differences in motivation within the Lebanese context and filled a gap in literature about such gender differences at the work place in the Middle East Region. This study approached employees` motivation in terms of content, process and job design dimensions.
