Palabras clave: Motivación Laboral, Motivación Intrínseca, personalidad y trabajo, modelos motivacionales

Resumen

Se indagó la relación entre la Motivación Intrínseca Laboral con las variables de personalidad Orientación a la Meta y Tesón (conscientiousness), a fin de reemplazar la variable Necesidad de Crecimiento del Modelo Motivacional propuesto por Hackman y Oldham (1980). Los instrumentos se aplicaron a una muestra de empleados (N = 228) de una empresa textil pertenecientes a 60 cargos diferentes. Los resultados mostraron que la Motivación Intrínseca Laboral presentaba una relación positiva con la Orientación a la Meta centrada en el Aprendizaje (r = 0.43; p < ,01). Finalmente se proporciona sugerencias para una futura investigación sobre el tema, y con fines de aplicación en el ámbito de la administración de los Recursos Humanos.
