  • The 'hygiene' word is deliberately medical as it is an analogy of the need to do something that is necessary, but which does contribute towards  making the patient well (it only stops them getting sick). Frederick Herzberg drew on Maslow’s theory of human needs and expanded it. He replaced a single hierarchy of needs with two sets of factors. In Herzberg’s theory, only the second set was really useful in motivating employees. Herzberg’s two factor (motivation-hygiene) theory We have basic needs (hygiene needs) which, when not met, cause us to be dissatisfied. Meeting these needs does not make us satisfied - it merely prevents us from becoming dissatisfied. Thursday, 25 July 13

  • Locke’s goal-setting theory Edwin Locke’s motivation theory is not a needs theory; it is known as goal theory. According to Locke, satisfaction comes from achieving defined goals. He argued the more challenging the goals, the greater will be the effort put in and also the satisfaction enjoyed by the worker. Difficult goals, when accepted by workers, result in higher performance than easy goals. Goals must be challenging Goals must be specific Set Collaboratively Positive Feedback Thursday, 25 July 13
