Abstract: The study examined the adopted motivational policies to the employees’ needs and the productivity level in Osun State Civil Service, OSCS Nigeria. Few studies ascertained the relationship between motivation policies and productivity. However, the study utilised social exchange for needs in examining the effect of motivation on employees’ productivity in OSCS, Nigeria. Triangulation of sampling method and sources of data collected were used. Though, the result showed six motivational policies with three most used: recommendation letter, ceremonial handshake, and State honour, however, the policies were inappropriate to employees’ needs, hence, little productivity is achieved. The study concludes that majority of the respondents were in the lower cadres and low education status with poor salary and working condition, who have preferred material incentives. There was no significant relationship between motivation policies adopted and job performance and productivity. There is a need to embark on welfare policy that is suitable for the employees’ needs.
