  9. 9. 1D – SUMMARIZING 1.According to Theory X, employers have to threaten workers because the threat of losing their jobs often makes people work better. 2.According to Theory Y, employers should give their workers responsibilities because a responsible job is necessary to people’s psychological well-being. 3.Maslow criticized Theory Y because there are people who are unable to take on responsibility and self-discipline. 4.Maslow argued that even though they might want to be given responsibilities at work, people also require the security that comes from routines and from being given instructions.
  10. 10. 1H – SUMMARIZING 1. Herzberg suggests that good labour relations and working conditions will only satisfy people – or more importantly, dissatisfy them if they do not exist – but not motivate them. 2. According to Herzberg, the kind of things that motivate people are challenging or interesting jobs, recognition, responsibility, the chance of promotion, and so on. 3. The problem with saying that only challenging, interesting and responsible jobs are motivating is that there are and always will be people in jobs that are not challenging, interesting and responsible, and managers have to try to motivate these people.
  11. 11. 4. Ways of motivating people in unskilled jobs include giving them responsibilities as a part of a team, giving them more than one activity to do during the day, and encouraging them to believe in corporate values. 5. The problem with trying to motivate workers by the belief that their company is the best is that it is unlikely to succeed if it is not true, and most companies are evidently not the best.
