Understanding how Maslow, Alderfer and Herzberg are interrelated The motivation theories of , and are closely related. The motivators symbolized the psychological needs that were perceived as an additional benefit. This point cannot be reached until all other needs have been met. The environment that they work in would also help with employees feeling safe as long as there is the avoidance of physical dangers. These needs can be seen as essentials for survival making it logical to be place at the bottom of the hierarchy and as the lowest motivator. PowerPoint Presentation: Hence, the Two-factor theory distinguishes between: Motivators : e. Of course for a manager to fulfill all these needs they would have to be able to relate to the motivational needs of the employees beneath them and incorporate them into their strategy so that employees would be able to achieve them through the tasks they perform.
Motivator Any need can be a motivator if it is relatively unsatisfied. He postulated, based on his observations as a humanistic psychologist, that there is a general pattern of needs recognition and satisfaction that people follow in generally the same sequence. According to Herzberg, there are some job factors that result in satisfaction while there are other job factors that prevent dissatisfaction.

Lastly, the growth need is the desire to be creative, self-confident, and productive, and engaged to the full abilities and obtain enhanced capabilities or skills. Also, the assumption that only one level of need is operational at any point in time is challenged.
The degree of autonomy depends on the extent of independence given to an employee in deciding about job scheduling, formulating the procedures, decision making without interference of others. This, a more personal, perhaps egotistical need, is much harder for a manager to incorporate into the working environment due to the managerial trend of reducing most jobs to their lowest level of job content. They will blame dissatisfaction on the external factors such as salary structure, company policies and peer relationship. Even though they apply to the majority, different people have different needs and levels of satisfaction therefore either model cannot be totally relied on for a manager to try motivate employees. A manager would be able to fulfill the basic needs by giving suitable amount of time for breaks in which the physiological needs can be easily met. A very important factor for a manager to remember is that the principle of behavior that is rewarded tends to be repeated and that which is punished, avoided. A more realistic description of the hierarchy would be in terms of decreasing percentages of satisfaction as potency increases.
These factors are extrinsic to work. Needs are physiological or psychological scarcities that stimulate behavior therefore are necessary to live a healthy, productive lives both in personal and work lives. Satisfaction may not be directly related to job performance. Hygiene factors are dissatisfiers while motivating factors motivate subordinates.

As the needs of human beings are unlimited, whenever one need is satisfied, another need take its place.
Focusing on the motivational factors can improve work-quality. According to Maslow, only a small percentage of the population reaches the level of self-actualization. This theory suggest that humans are motivated by needs. This final need however, is rarely met, hence it being at the top of the hierarchy as the idea of: as you progress up the hierarchy, the peak of each need that must be passed is higher than the need before it. On the other hand, the companies can motivate its employees by providing opportunities in career development, job recognition, responsibility, etc. There are specific levels as to which need has to come first or last.
Herzberg's theory not only determined what satisfied and motivated employees but he found out what dissatisfied them as well, this was unlike the other 4 theories. The five stages developed in the theory will help understand how each need motivates… vital for the long-term success, a company need to recognise the necessity of innovation which in order to fit the rapid change of the industry. . The reason for this may be that although one receives more money for what they do, they will not necessarily work harder having acquired the raise. The job must utilize the employees skills and competencies to the maximum. This therefore links salary to the motivator, promotion which would be the reason for why there is a sudden increase in an individuals income.
Through extensive research and developed their own theories which are now used in businesses all around the world. Also there is the conflict of whether or not salary is a motivator. Neither you, nor the coeditors you shared it with will be able to recover it again. The raters may spoil the findings by analyzing same response in different manner. Each is very similar in the way that there are certain requirements that must be fulfilled before high levels of motivation can be obtained. He also stated that these factors on their own do not lead to job satisfaction but their absence can create dissatisfaction.
This methodology may cause people to recall only the most recent experiences. Task significance, on the other hand, denotes significance of a job on the life of others—both within and outside the organization. Therefore, Maslow's higher levels social and esteem needs are akin to Herzberg's Motivator factors. The satisfiers relate to what a person does while the dissatisfiers relate to the situation in which the person does what he or she does. Managers in businesses would use these theories in an attempt to motivate staff to provide them with job satisfaction and in return receive better task performance.
Theories Of Motivation Maslow And Herzberg By Durga Devi. Even if it does, it will only be temporarily and perhaps not enough for the peak need of self-actualization to start being met. If the previous motivator has not been reasonably satisfied then there will be no desire to try and obtain the next. It is mostly applicable to poor and developing countries where money is still a big motivating factor. In an organization, employees may be at different levels of the need hierarchy and, therefore, before planning the motivational strategies, an organization should identify in which level the current requirements of employees have been positioned.
Maslow viewed human needs as being static whereas in reality these needs are dynamic. It suggests the motivating factors which can be used effectively. This research has broadened the understanding of motivating factors and job satisfaction in the work place. Theory X and Theory Y have to do with the perceptions managers hold on their employees, not the way they generally behave Theory X Assumptions of Theory X : Theory X Assumptions of Theory X The average human being is inherently lazy by nature and desires to work as little as possible.
