Individuals display dedication, loyalty, and a commitment to his or her corporation as steps have been taken by the establishment in cementing a sense of belonging for every employee. Organizational commitment concerns the psychological belonging of an employee to an organization (12 Manage, 2010). The benefits and results an organization exhibits stems from high productivity and job satisfaction from the employees. Organizations know it is in their best interest in developing steps that establish high levels of commitment from each of their employees and Microsoft is no different from any other organization concerning employee motivation.
The Microsoft Corporation: arguably the most successful company of the 21st century. Without conducting any research one could gather that employee motivation is one of Microsoft’s highest priorities. Microsoft’s founders Paul Allen and Bill Gates started the business as a small company that provided small programming applications for local clients. As the business grew in the era of basic computer language, the unnamed company adopted the name Microsoft in 1975 (Kumar, 2010).
By 1982 Microsoft became Microsoft Incorporated. The corporation operated from the state of Washington with more than 220 employees, a major portion of the international market, and more than 50 vendors selling its products (Kumar). As of the 21st century Microsoft is a multinational corporation with more than 50,000 employees whose name is in almost every home in America and across the globe. It is not a coincidence that Microsoft arose to the level of success they enjoy in the current market. Without employee motivation Microsoft would not be in the position the corporation holds in the 21st century and for continued success, the corporation must continually concentrate and improve upon new and existing motivational processes.
