Case study: Motivation to attend and perform at work: Evidence from a privatized organization


Silvia Dello Russo has been part of the founding group of researchers that started a close collaboration with the HR Department of a large privatized company in Italy. The aim was exploring the determinants of job performance and absenteeism and, thus, understanding what motivates employees to attend and perform work. The objective of the project was gaining evidence-based indications for implementing HR practices, and this resulted in the creation of a “laboratory” whereby a large panel of employees were followed across several years. This longitudinal study, still ongoing, stimulated a number of HR initiatives and was fed-back to participants, therefore impacting several constituencies.
