To meet the studyâ€™s goals, stratified random sampling was employed in sample selection, with personnel being divided into management levels. Employees of Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital were chosen as the sample of 30 respondents. According to the findings, Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital motivates its staff in a variety of methods, including providing fringe benefits, awarding incentives to outstanding employees, instilling a sense of responsibility, promoting consistently good individuals, and treating all employees equally.
