Abstract

The purpose of the study presented in this paper is to examine the impact of intrinsic and extrinsic motivators
on the performance of employees at educational institutes. The study adopted a positivist philosophical stance
with a deductive approach to collect the data. The research was based on a cross-sectional time horizon. The
results presented in this paper show that there is a significant contribution of extrinsic motivation in increasing
the performance of the employees. Whereas, intrinsic motivation contributes significantly, but has less impact
in comparison to extrinsic motivation. The association among the independent variables further shows that
intrinsic motivation has significant but negative relationship with extrinsic motivation in the context of employees
performance. Despite of a plethora of literature on the study of motivation, the extrinsic and intrinsic motivation for
educational institutes are not well studied. Thus, this study contributes to bridging the gap in the area of educational
institutions. This study will be further helpful in education for increasing the employees’ performance.
