Applied Micro Workshop – Timo Freyer, “Task Autonomy, Motivation, and Performance”

— filed under:

Timo Freyer, Lukas Kießling, Jonas Radbruch, and Sebastian Schaube: “Task Autonomy, Motivation, and Performance” When defining their employees’ work environment, employers can either set very narrow guidelines or leave relevant aspects to the employees’ discretion, i.e., grant autonomy. While Self-Determination Theory postulates that autonomy has a direct effect on intrinsic motivation, autonomy allows an employee to self-select productivity-enhancing workplace features. In order to investigate whether there is indeed a motivational component to autonomy, it is essential not only to control for selection into autonomy-promoting working schemes but also to control for the selection of workplace features due to autonomy. We present pretest data from an online experiment which explores the effect of task autonomy on performance and allows us to isolate the direct effect of autonomy by controlling for subjects’ preferences.
