Labor motivation is a subject of competence of the area under management of the human resources sector, which seeks to minimize employee dissatisfaction with the organization and with a view to promoting the employee's professional fulfillment. With this article we intend to make a theoretical approach on Labor Motivation. The article is divided into four points: the first point gives us several definitions of motivation, the second makes reference to theories of motivation, and finally the third point makes a more detailed approach to work motivation. We conclude that it is crucial to keep people motivated and satisfied so that, as a whole, the company and the worker diligently achieve the objectives set. We must recognize that we do not live in a perfect world, and that we must find in ourselves the solution to "all evils" and in this impetus we must bear in mind that self-motivation is the only ally in the constancy of life and there are maintain the momentum that drives us to action "for our own."
