Description

Working college students often face the challenge of being motivated in their activities and having their basic psychological needs met at work, whether they work as readers or campus caretakers. This study seeks to find the relationship between college students’ work ethic and perceived performance, and their work motivation and needs support using a survey methodology. I hypothesize that of the types of motivation, the strongest relationship to work ethic will be from the most internalized motivations. I also expect to find that working environments that meet basic psychological needs will be positively related to work ethic and internalized motivation.
