Part-2
What Motivated Workers in the Face of a Pandemic?
Sometimes it’s easy to figure out what’s going to motivate workers. But at other times it’s
nearly impossible to know what would make someone want to persevere in a particular
job. During the COVID-19 pandemic, health care workers across the globe stepped up and
sacrificed themselves—in ways that the rest of us may never fully grasp—in order to take
care of humanity. They exposed themselves and their families to the virus, they worked
without proper personal protective equipment (PPE), and they kept at it during gruellingly
long shifts, day after day. Reports estimated that health care workers’ infection rates were
somewhere between 10% and 20% of the total cases. On the surface, it seemed there were
no plausible explanations for why these workers continued to show up to their jobs
throughout the crisis.
you will need to do further research beyond reading the chapter.
5. What were the major motivation issues at play in the health care industry according to
the major needs-based theories of motivation (Maslow’s hierarchy, McClelland’s acquired
needs, and Deci and Ryan’s self-determination)? (05 Marks) (Min words 200-300)
6. What do you think were the major equity issues faced by health care workers during
the pandemic? (05 Marks) (Min words 200)

Formatting Specifications:
•
One-inch margins on all sides of the document.
•
Double-space entire document, including the reference page.
•
Use Times New Roman, black font color, and size 12 font for the entire document, including
the reference page.
•
Include a separate title page with the following information. Centered in the top half of the page:
(a) paper title, (b) student name, (c) course number and name of course, (d) name of institution,
(e) name of instructor, (f) date submitted. All major words are capitalized and not bold.
Insert the page numbers on the title page. Start with page 1.
•
Use headings within the body of the document. Headings establish the hierarchy of the sections
of a paper. All topics of equal importance have the same level of heading throughout the paper.
Use at least two subsection headings within any given section or use none.
•
Indent all paragraphs five spaces to the right or 1/2 inch with no extra line
spacebetween paragraphs.
•
Spell out all phrases when first used in a document with the acronym in parenthesis after it. Just
the acronym can be used in subsequent uses. Example: The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for
Motorola stated…
• In-text citations should be used throughout body of document.
• Directly quoted material should be cited to page number or paragraph number of where
the quotation was found. Keep in mind that only 15-20% of your paper can be quoted (i.e.,
one quote per page).
• Block formatting is required for quotes of 40 words or more. For a block quote, indent
entire quote 5 space to the right or 1/2 inch, do not use quotation marks, and place the period at
the end of the quote, not the citation.
• Use a page break (common feature in word processing software) to create a new page
for reference citations. The word “References” should be centered at the top, not bold, and
should not have any punctuation. References are double spaced and in hanging indent
format and in alphabetical order.
Several templates and a sample paper are available for you to see examples ofAPA
formatting.
