                                                      CHAPTER ONE
1.1 Background
Human motivation studies are centered on discovery what it is that triggers and sustain human behavior. While motivation as a practice entails empowering employees to perform assigned tasks to meet or surpass predetermined standard. This practice grew out of the human relations governance in the 1930s, and is based on some of the principles discovered by scholars doing research in management and organizational studies, such as the Hawthorne effect as a study into physical conditions and productivity (Oyediran, 2008). While motivation as encouraged employees to contribute their effort to organizational productivity as well as voice their opinions about their working condition in a safe environment, protected from the potential, defensiveness management responsibility confronting productivity.
According to Salter (1960) the basic aim of any organization is to attain all goals, which is the higher – level with least cost. Organizations have objectives which are either to produce goods and services, make profit, distribute service, impact and sustain positive relationship with their clients, target groups and their environment. The achievement of the objectives of the organization is dependent on the level of management responsibility to employees’ motivation, apart from the infrastructures and the work environment. Above all, motivation can be beneficial to any company in many ways such as catalyst to enhance productivity, commitment, morale and harnessing internal resources and teamwork (Oyediran, 2008, Anumiri, 2014).
Apparently, when employees are motivated, they gain energy and satisfaction, as well as personal stake in the organization and its overall success. This commitment leads to increased productivity as employees are actively mobilize to satisfy the basic derives, perceived needs and personal goals, which trigger employees commitment toward various aspects of the company effort to succeed. This is not only beneficial to company growth, but is also on-the-job to arouse impact on job satisfaction for workers. This increase also performances and sustains behavior and stimulating for action and desired task (Luthan, 1998, Oyediran 2008, Kester 2002).
Adeyemi cited in Mutiullah (2014) posited that there are basic assumptions of motivation practices by managers which must be understood. First, that motivation is commonly assumed to be a good thing. One cannot feel very good about oneself if one is not motivated. Second, motivation is one of several factors that go into a person’s performance (e.g., as a worker). Factor such as ability, resources, and condition under which one performs are important. Third managers and researchers alike assume that motivation is in short supply and in need of periodic replenishment. Fourth motivation is a tool with which managers can use in organizations. If managers known what makes these people “tick”. It is clear from the foregoing that motivation remains part and parcel what organization cannot do without. In proper perspective Olajide (2000) note that motivation is whatever it takes to encourage workers to perform by fulfilling or appealing to their needs. It is a goal-directed, and there organization whether public, private or non-profit.
In addition, motivation employees influences their level of satisfaction and commitment, as it affects organizational productivity positively when they are willing and committed practice as management responsibility as part to organizational goals. Willingness and commitment can be exhibited by employees towards their job if they are motivated on the basis of what induce and sanitize them to perform (Agwu and Olele, 2014, Anumiri, 2014).
Motivation has been widely recommended as means of energizing force that induces or composed and maintain behavior in order to improving the quality of work life. However, when considering motivation in the work place one must differentiate between two types. The first is intrinsic motivation that stems from rewards that are whereat in the job itself and which the individual enjoy as a result of successfully completing the task or attaining his goals. The second is extrinsic in this motivation are those that are  external to the task of the job, such as pay work condition, fringe benefits, security, promotions, contract of such, the work environment and conditions of work. Such tangible rewards are often determined at the organizational level, and may be largely outside their control of the individual managers. Intrinsic motivation on the other hand are those reward that can be termed psychological reward and examples are opportunity to use one ability, a sense of challenge and  achievement, receiving appreciation, positive recognition and being treated in a caring and considerate manner (McCormick and Tafflin, 1979, Mutiullah, 2014). Both types of motivation are important component of the quality of work life. An organization that encourages both types as well incorporate it into it management responsibility will definitely enhance productivity at all levels.
The manufacturing sector in Nigeria has been a focal subsector, but little is probably known about the level of motivation employees enjoy as a result of management responsibility to enhance productivity. The particular attention in manufacturing emanates from the conviction that the sector is a potential instrument of modernization, a creator of jobs and generating of positive spill – over effects (Tybout, 2000).  It is against the back drop that we carried out a research on the motivation, management responsibility and a catalyst for enhance productivity using Peugeot Automobile Kaduna as a case study.

1.2 Statement of the Problem.
Peugeot Automobile Nigeria Limited has had a chaquerred industrial relations history since it made it manufacturing foray into Nigeria in 1971 after the country is military leader at that time, General Yakubu Gowon choose Peugeot out of the 16 reputable vehicle – manufacturer companies in the world invited to submit a proposal on establishing a vehicle assembly plant in the country. with the commencement of production on March 2, 1975, top – down approach to decision making in management responsibility was instituted by the management that impact ordinary workers motivation of the company. This led to intermittent industrial recriminations between workers and management culminating in picketing and strikes over the years.
In 2006, the company was privatized under the Federal Government’s Privatization Programme, which led to change in ownership structure and apparently management team. An indigenous Motor Dealership ASD Motors Nigeria Limited acquired dominant equity of 5487 percent. To promote the company for the competitive challenges of the future, the management decided to adopt bottom –up (participatory) approach to decision-making in management responsibility, thus improving motivation of the employees in the productivity.
Theoretically, motivation is assumed to increase commitment of the work-force, thus leading to improved productivity. Secondly, there is popular belief the motivation assures industrial harmony by creating sense of satisfaction among employees, thereby leading to sustainable industrial relationship between employers and employees. It is against this backdrop that we carry out an empirical study on the theoretical propositions of the relationship between motivation as management responsibility and a catalyst for enhance productivity in Peugeot Automobile Nigeria Limited. These workers to out the extent of convergence or divergence between theory and practice in Peugeot Automobile Nigeria Limited.
