Farm jobs are more labour intensive and prone to adverse events due to changing weather conditions, which make it a physically challenging job. Intensive physical activities, long working hours, changing shift schedules, and working in adverse conditions are some of the factors that influence workers not only physically but also mentally, which in return leads to low levels of motivation in them. The main purpose of this research project is to evaluate the issue of lack of motivation amongst employees working on a farm. For attainment of this purpose, this research has used qualitative observation method in which all the employees have been closely observed to analyse the changes in their overall performance level and motivation to perform work under different circumstances. The overall analysis of the observed data demonstrated that the main reasons for lack of motivation observed amongst the employees consist of lack of management support, no rewards or recognition, working in different shifts, and lack of flexibility in working hours.
