The Motivators Assessment

Most people know their personality and their strengths. But what about their motivators? Just because someone is good at something doesn’t necessarily mean they love it!

Created from the results of workplace surveys with more than 850,000 people, The Motivators AssessmentTM is the world’s most extensive and scientific assessment to help individuals identify their unique blend of core motivators, enabling them to align their passions with more of what they love at work and less of what frustrates them.

The format, timing, and facilitation was one of the best train-the-trainer sessions I’ve attended; and doing virtual sessions are never easy, especially when you’re talking about motivation and engagement. Kudos to the team for a job well done!

The What Motivates 
Me program was full
 of engagement and experiential learning. 
It was one of our highest rated programs. I would highly recommend!

Todd BillingsleyDirector, Leadership Training & Development, Boehringer Ingelheim

We just completed a rather large leadership rollout of The Culture Works program "What Motivates Me." The Motivators Assessment truly gives us the opportunity to "sculpt" each person's work so it aligns with their passions and strengths. This will help us retain talent and have happier, more satisfied employees. And that makes for a better workplace, and a better company.

BJ JohnstonDirector, Learning and Leader Development, Bloomberg

We launched What Motivates Me last year as a part of our career development and employee engagement program. The interest in this workshop is phenomenal. The assessment provides participants insight into their deepest motivations and passions for their work. This is new information for many and ignites a passion for their work. In addition, it provides managers a great tool for building engagement. These classes fill up within minutes of being published and are the most popular in our series!

This has not only helped motivate and engage (my people) in the business, but I get better business outcomes.

Casey JonesManager of Project Management, Fannie Mae

Our staff level employees are really enjoying the course and are applying the Add, Alter, Transfer techniques. They are also starting to have those aspirational conversations with their leadership. It’s also rewarding to see the cultural shift as a result.

Steven HeilbrunAssociate Principal, Pacheco Koch

The What Motivates Me Training has given us insight into what truly motivates our employees. We recently incorporated a discussion about an employee’s assessment in their annual performance review, and it was one of the most insightful and productive discussions we’ve had. We are looking forward to continue success as we roll this out to the entire firm.
