The University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) is a public educational institute serving over 3,000 students it has over 600 faculty and staff members. The UNBC Information Technology (IT) department is one of the largest departments on campus. In this paper, I aim to discuss some practical and managerial approaches to motivating the IT department's employees intrinsically, thereby producing superior results. This paper qualitatively reviews past literature on intrinsic motivation and its theories. Utilizing both previous literature and my own experience working in the UNBC IT department, I propose a number of different solutions. Then an action plan is created to implement all the propositions in UNBC IT department settings. --Leaf ii.
