The work motives inventory is used to record which motives a person wants to satisfy through his or her professional activity. It distinguishes 16 basic work motives (primary motives): self-reference, autonomy, development, variety, self-worth, leadership, material, power, prestige, achievement, comfort, prosociality, connection, activity, security, and work-life balance. The primary motives can be grouped into 4 higher-level work motives (secondary motives): Individuality, Career, Social, and Personal. Two self-report forms are available, a long version with 97 items (IEA) and a short version with 32 items (IEA-K). The long version can be used to examine both primary and secondary motives. The short version IEA-K only covers the four secondary motives.

In addition, there are two questionnaires for job analysis (IEA-A and IEA-A-K), which refer to the identical work motives as the two self-assessment questionnaires. The two questionnaires can be used to examine specific workplaces to determine the extent to which they offer jobholders the opportunity to satisfy certain work motives. In order to obtain a workplace analysis that is as accurate and meaningful as possible, several workplace experts (approx. 2-5 people) should always be interviewed. Depending on the question, the self-assessment questionnaires and the workplace analysis questionnaires can be used together or independently of each other. In the case of combined use, care should be taken that either both long versions (IEA and IEA-A) or both short versions (IEA-K and IEA-A-K) are used together.
