B. Analysis of the “Lack of motivation” Aspect at Jinjian

Evolution of HR

Every employee can be motivated, since every employee has his reasons for acquiring a specific job. It ranges from self satisfaction and high morale, to obtaining a better quality of life. The secret here is to create a medium in which people are eager to work effectively and efficiently to accomplish the company’s goals. However, the concept of achieving employee motivation as an enhancing factor for company performance is relatively new. All these aspects led to the emergence of the concepts of human resource development (HRD) and human resource management (HRM).

The concept of human resource management is said to have started in England in the 1800s during the apprenticeship era and with the arrival of the industrial revolution. In the 1900s, Frederick Taylor established the concept of “scientific management” or Taylorism. It is an approach to industrial, management and organizational psychology. It is usually linked to mass production i.e. factories with assembly lines, similar to the case in Jinjian garment factory.
