The importance of motivation in work place cannot be over looked since it helps workers to be focused on their work. This study assessed the motivational packages of Controller and Accountant General Staff in the New Juaben Municipality. This was carried out by analyzing the various types of motivational packages, determining the staff perception of the motivational packages and the problems associated with the implementation of the motivational packages. This study was carried out against the background that most of the motivational packages given to the staff are considered not to be valuable and relevant enough to motivate them. The study adopted the survey methods of research especially in the data collection and data analysis. A sample size of ninety (90) workers was randomly selected and questionnaires were used as the main instrument to collect data on types of motivation packages, perception and problems associated with the motivational packages. The data collected was analyzed using descriptive statistics. The main findings of the study on the motivational packages available to workers are allowances and recognition of workers while minor motivational packages include opportunity to learn, promotion of staff and increase in remuneration. It was recommended that other types of motivational packages considered to be minor should be enhanced in order to give a holistic package to workers.
