Assignment Brief
Ms. Betty has been employed in an administrative role in a university for the last 15 years. She is generally regarded as a reliable, consistent worker and meets all deadlines that are set for her. She has good interpersonal skills and is well-liked by her colleagues. She has applied for promotion for the past three years and on each occasion she has been unsuccessful. On these occasions, promotions have been awarded to individuals with better formal qualifications, but less experience than Ms. Betty. Yet, due to budgetary pressures, Ms. Betty has had her repeated requests to enroll in a postgraduate diploma course denied over this period. As a result, she is becoming more disillusioned with the university and is thinking about leaving.

You are currently studying a module which deals with content and process theories of motivation. Select one content theory and two process theories to explain how Ms. Betty’s inability to get promoted is affecting her motivation levels. What positive measures could Ms. Betty’s manager take to remotivate her?
