Bent, Richard and Seaman, Claire and Ingram, Arthur (1999) Staff motivation in small food manufacturing enterprises. British Food Journal, 101 (9). pp. 654-667. ISSN 0007-070XFull text not available from this repository.
Examines the factors which affect staff motivation and satisfaction in small food businesses. Explores previous theories of motivation. Thirty-eight small food processing and manufacturing companies in Scotland formed the sample. Interviews and open-ended semistructured questionnaires were employed in the research. Results emphasise the importance of the management style of the owner/manager particularly when it comes to factors such as ``lack of appreciation'', ``poor communication'' and ``training''.
