Find out a way to make the job fin and enjoyable, but still get the tasks done by the deadline. I would also apply a five steps rule to the company management.

Safety needs - such as security, protection from danger and freedom from pain. Social needs - sometimes also referred to as love needs such as friendship, giving and receiving love, engaging in social activities and group membership. Esteem needs - these include both self-respect and the esteem of others. For example, the desire for self-confidence and achievement, and recognition and appreciation. Self-actualization, this is about the desire to develop and realize your full potential. To become everything you can be.

Herzberg made the Motivation/Hygiene theory which affects job attitudes: Leading to Dissatisfaction - Company policy - Supervision - Relationship w/Boss - Work conditions - Salary - Relationship with Peers Leading to Satisfaction - Achievement - Recognition - Work itself - Responsibility - Advancement - Growth? McGregor if I’m not mistaken made Theory X and Theory Y and Theory X, managers assume their employees are inherently lazy and will avoid work if they can. They dislike work and because of this must be closely monitored. In
