Self-determination theory is a theory of human motivation that increasingly is being used by organizations to make strategic HR decisions and train managers. It argues for a focus on the quality of workers' motivation over quantity. Motivation that is based on meaning and interest is shown to be superior to motivation that is based on pressure and rewards. Work environments that make workers feel competent, autonomous, and related to others foster the right type of
motivation, goals, and work values. The Oxford Handbook of Work Engagement, Motivation, and Self-Determination Theory aims to give current and future organizational researchers
ideas for future research using self-determination theory as a framework, and to give practitioners ideas on how to adjust their programs and practices using self-determination theory principles. The book brings together self-determination theory experts and organizational psychology experts to talk about past and future applications of the theory to the field of organizational psychology. The book covers a wide range of topics, including how to bring about commitment, engagement, and passion
in the workplace; how to manage stress, health, emotions, and violence at work; how to encourage safe and sustainable behavior in organizations; how factors like attachment styles, self-esteem,
person-environment fit, job design, leadership, compensation, and training affect work motivation; and how work-related values and goals are forged by the work environment and affect work outcomes.
