In any organization, the behavior of employees depends on the style of management and administration. Motivation is an important attempt, especially in an effort to improve the productivity of employees. The desire of the company to achieve its goals and objectives can be reflected in the management and management styles used to influence workers in the performance of their duties and responsibilities. In any organization, employees are the most valuable asset, as they are the key to achieving the desired goals and objectives set by the organization. Therefore, it is reasonable to invest in human resources with different dimensions, so that each employee performs the necessary actions. The business world is becoming increasingly complex in the face of competition from various aggressive companies. Motivation, for decades, is seen as the most important discipline to be addressed, and if it cannot be an example in an organization, there is a great chance that there will be different prosaic conditions. This article provides information about Toyota Corporation’s strategy for motivating employees to recover from the company that was the result of a previous performance failure
In recent years, clients have raised incredibly numerous complaints about the mechanical destruction of Toyota cars. As a result, the company was forced to recall about 10 million vehicles worldwide. According to the press service (2013), this error occurred because staff members were not fulfilling their duties and responsibilities, as expected, due to the absence of motivational strategies that could contribute to their performance, as well as influence on the organization’s behavior. Despite this, staff cannot be blamed for the likely problem of factors that go beyond their powers, which includes factors that affect the overall behaviour of the company. Some of these factors include inadequate job training, inappropriate decisions and actions on the part of senior managers, the use of input data that was wrong to perform various processes, the lack of proper rewards and proper motivation policies that affect the behaviour of staff members. Consequently, the company’s difficulties relate to poor decision-making, improper motivation and failure by management to maintain a good culture in order to influence the desired behaviour of the staff. Indeed, it has forced the company to use different motivating strategies to attract staff and develop good behaviour, so that staff can take appropriate decisions on specific critical processes and provide them with important knowledge in the area of productivity improvement
In accordance with the Marksberry (2012), the corporation is the world’s largest automobiles production company and is based on Toyota, Japan. Kiichiro Toyota in Aichi, Japan was founded in 1933 by the organization. Today, the company has about 400,000 employees located in branches all over the globe. The company is proud to have produced more than three hundred million vehicles since it was accepted into the business world. Its assortment of products can be considered through numerous successful profits and enterprises over the years with quantity and quality, which are the slogan of the company. He works with numerous non-automotive companies around the world, making it the largest conglomerate across the globe. Liker and Ogden (2011) explained that over the years, the company had been faced with turbulent times in operations that range from high losses due to natural disasters such as tsunamis and major earthquakes, etc., to major financial crises that led the company to borrow urgently in an attempt to finance operations. Recently, according to Liker and Ogden (2011), the company was recently hit by a financial crisis as a result of engineering failure, which convinced the company that it had suffered the most lost losses since it was accepted. Management procedures and processes have been carefully followed and the company has been able to find a noose in the motivations of the staff, forcing the company to fight such strategies as a way to recover from the worst history in history
The company, according to Beaudan (2012), has started training extravaganza as the most important step to motivate employees and promote good behavior, and also make sure that employees are equipped with the necessary knowledge to work with different processes. Training will thus provide staff with the knowledge and skills needed to address the various emerging issues that motivate them to identify unusual changes and to avoid misfortune. According to the French (2011), the practice of conscientious employment is important as part of motivational factors, as they contribute to good conduct of employees, and this translates to the use of competent and quality personnel with the relevant skills and effectiveness in dealing with complex and emerging situations in the organization. This is important for any company, since recruitment strategies will reduce the standard of living of other workers in harsh policies and their morale. According to Press (2013), the retention strategy adopted by the company will allow the recognition of highly qualified and reliable personnel in terms of the development of the company’s heritage, as well as maintaining the status of the critical mission
In addition, the organization also seeks to improve performance management in the proposal to evaluate staff performance as a critical motivation programme. Liker and Ogden (2011) explained that this has had a significant impact on the behaviour of employees regarding their reaction to negative information, while companies easily thrive. In fact, there are situations such as those that exist in several organizations that are fighting better performance by investing in different motivations to change behaviour. In line with the Marksberry (2012), a large number of organizations have already recognized the importance of staff motivation as a measure that continuously improves efficiency by applying the strategies that are necessary and deserve to improve staff efficiency and skills. This has an impact on their influence and responsible behaviour in different situations, thus ensuring that staff make excellent decisions about the various processes and procedures that do not jeopardize the reputation of the organization
Leadership in this situation depends to a large extent on different approaches to mobilizing staff to improve performance and behaviour. In accordance with French (2011), good leadership style is promoted by positive work among the staff, as well as their support in the search for the realization of the goals and objectives of the organization in the long term. The motivation of the employees influences future trends in Toyota Corporation, encouraging the company to strive for excellence in terms of good performance and efficient use of different situations
In conclusion, the document emphasizes the importance of Toyota’s motivation as an important step in protecting it from the previous financial crisis caused by a mechanical mistake that cost the company huge losses. Thanks to motivations, the company can launder a hole that led to the company becoming a vulnerable situation that has been so devastating, and it will inspire staff to be good managers in terms of accountability and decision-making. Thus, it will play an important role in helping the company increase its success and avoid such mistakes, which could jeopardize the reputation and brand of the organization. This, in turn, will influence the company with regard to its pursuit of excellence
