Abstract: The topics of motivation and job satisfaction have been the subjects of interest to researchers in the past decade. Many researchers and practitioners have studied the driving factors that motivate staff in the workplace, but no specific finding has shown the correlation between motivation and job performance. This study is an attempt to improve the understanding of the human contribution to variability in manufacturing industries and focuses on the relationship between employee motivation and learning behaviours while doing different tasks. Industrial and experimental studies have been conducted to test four hypotheses concerning simple/complex tasks, skilled/unskilled workers and group/individual working. It was found that none of the hypotheses were supported. These findings are expected to be useful for future reference especially related to the motivation and learning theories among employees in manufacturing industries.
