Structured abstract:

Background:  Low employment percentages of young people with disabilities, compared to those without disabilities, leads to the question of what factors into this lower rate of employment? Motivation is a significant component in assisting people’s job acquisitions or in impeding their employment.
Purpose:  The authors of this article set out to create and establish an interview guide in the form of a topic list for occupational health care professionals that could assist them in discussing work motivation as it relates to young people with disabilities.
Data collection and analysis:  Through systematic literature searches that included topics of work motivation and work motivation assessments, the authors created a work motivation topic list. The publication platforms included in the search were Pubmed, PsychInfo and Picarta
Findings:  The authors found 12 articles describing aspects of work motivation and 17 articles describing instruments that assess work motivation. The aspects of work motivation they found were intrinsic motivation, extrinsic motivation, goal setting, self-efficacy, expectancy, values and work readiness. The authors then formed an interview guide that includes these topic areas: intrinsic motivation, extrinsic motivation, goal setting, expectancy, values, self- efficacy, and work readiness.
Conclusions:  The literature analysis and the interview guide topics reveal that motivation is an important factor of work participation among young people with disabilities.
