Title

Professional activity motives of private security company employees for sustainable development


Abstract

The present study is devoted to researching the peculiarities of the hierarchy of motives in the structure of professional motivation as a sign of success of the professional activity of private security company employees in Latvia. C. Zamfir’s Work Motivation Inventory (WMI) was applied as the research method. The results have revealed that the motives directly related to professional activity do not have a leading function. The presence of the authoritarian syndrome as an axiological political phenomenon, which serves the regulating function of company employee behaviour, indicates the existence of an internal crisis and the necessity of changes in the operation of the companies. It is stated that the combination of motives with high ranks in the structure of professional motivation can be viewed as a prognostic factor of sustainability/unsustainability of development of the company as a whole.
