Abstract:

This research is mainly focussed on analysing a Performance Management System (PMS) and its impact on the motivational level of employees at the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development (MOFED) of the Republic of Mauritius. A survey was carried out using the convenience sampling technique to grasp the views of the employees. 200 questionnaires were distributed and the response rate was 55%. The results indicate that the main elements of a PMS process which are motivating elements for employees were missing in the organisation: regular feedback, communication and training. Thus, recommendations were made to the top management to market the concept of PMS, improve the communication strategy and feedback strategy, encourage employee participation and recognition, link PMS to pay and training and provide a supporting management who would promote organisational learning.
