Abstract
Motivation can be defined as everything that drives and sustains human behaviour. The identification and use of each patient's motivational factors in the rehabilitation process has been shown to be important for a successful rehabilitation outcome. The aim of this literature review is to identify factors related to high work motivation. The databases Medline and Psychlit were searched for factors related to work motivation.

The aim of this literature review is to identify factors related to high work motivation. The databases Medline and Psychlit were searched for factors related to work motivation. Different motivating factors were identified: individual factors, job and organisational factors, and factors within rehabilitation. Individual motivating factors were: interests, attitudes, needs, realistic expectancies, perceived self-efficacy, and self-confidence. Job and environmental motivating factors were: structural factors, clear goals, work content, social support, and type of rewards/feedback. Motivating factors within rehabilitation were: clear goals, value-clarification, social support, participation in treatment, locus of control, and communication and cooperation. These motivating factors need to be focused in preventive activities at the work-place, as well as in work rehabilitation. (Less)
