In Denmark the amount of elderly citizens has grown profoundly over the last decades, yet the care facilities are constantly required to streamline their economy and make financial cuts. Efficiency improvements in an organization or institution brings change to the work environment which undoubtedly meets resistance from the employees as resistance to change or a strong negative perception of change is a force of nature. This paper examines a public care facility’s handling of municipal efficiency requirements. Through analysis of the case in which empirical data, management theory and motivation theory is included and used as an analyzing tool, the paper aims to conclude that the management at the care facility is the primary reason as to why the institution is able to handle the municipal efficiency requirements. In extend to a critical reflection of the conclusion reached in the analysis, the paper concludes that the management is able to accommodate the municipal efficiency requirements through great internal teamwork and a profound mutual understanding of each member’s individual competencies. It is furthermore concluded that the management is able to motivate employees, through dissemination of the goals at task and through acknowledgement of the employees at the care facility, and that this specific skill is essential as to why the facility is able to handle the municipal efficiency requirements, as the motivation births a willingness to upgrade individual personal performance in the employees in their work.
