However, the key motivators for driving work performance amid exigencies by utilising HR policies effectively for meeting the employees' expectations and organisational goals remain largely untapped. Using aspects of HR policies namely- compensation and benefits, leadership communication competency, flexible work practices, use of tech tools and physical work environment for employees amid medical exigency situation on a global level, the present study examines the key motivators of driving work performance during COVID-19 crisis. Compensation and benefits, flexible work practices, communication competency of leaders appeared to have the strongest influence on work performance.
