Because some of Chinese managers blindly or entirely imitate western motivation models to encourage Chinese employees’ behavior without considering Chinese situation carefully, these motivation models do not work optimally. The aim of this dissertation is to find out which motivator is the most effectiveness for improving employees’ behaviors in Chinese family business. Firstly, this dissertation offered the literature review which aimed to let readers understand more clearly about the background of this topic.

Based on this result, this dissertation also illustrated both theoretical and practical implication in final part. Its purpose was to offer a suggestion for general Chinese family business to satisfy their employees’ feeling of fairness.
