Abstract
This Research evaluated the association between motivation of employees in Marks and Spencer, Dunnes, and Tesco and flexibility of work schedule of secondary part-time workers and retention part-time workers vis a vis full time workers. Specifically, it focused on the degree of motivation attained by the secondary part-time, retention part-time and full time workers on the management's implementation of flexitime. This study concludes that retention part time, secondary part time and full time employees exhibited comparable motivation based on the flexitime offered in Tesco Ireland, Marks and Spencer and Dunnes Stores. To a certain extent, retention part time workers tend to be most motivated by flexitime scheduling in Tesco Ireland, Marks and Spencer and Dunnes Stores because of the perspective that they will not be working at all if flexitime is not available. Secondary part time workers show comparable responses with that of the retention part time workers. Full time employees showed equivalent results with retention and secondary part time workers in terms of their views on flexitime and motivation
