Abstract


This study tries to identify the factors that motivate employees as human resources in local government that serve as a basis for increasing the service quality. In this study, a structured questionnaire were used in order to collect data from respondents. The questions get answers from respondents about their motivation regarding their performance assessment within municipalities they work. The data was collected using primary and secondary resources. Secondary data were collected from books, textbooks, online articles, magazines, etc. The analyses of the findings from the study show the importance of motivation that is affected by the process of performance assessment. Setting standards and building evaluation systems help strengthen governance of local authorities. In this way municipalities will improve transparency, accountability, and build a corporate culture in the local government management and a better service to the citizens of those municipalities. From the obtained results, salary of workers, professional advancement and opportunity for promotion appear to be among the most important factors of motivation. The other important factors that the study revealed are work conditions, as well as the evaluation and the objective assessment of performance measurement. The data and results will provide additional information for managers of rural and urban municipalities of the Republic of Kosovo about their drafting strategies for a more efficient management of human resources which will increase the quality of services at the local level and beyond.
