Being given responsibility and authority to make decisions.
Relationship with management.
Gaining promotion.
Achieving things in the work that you do.
The satisfaction of doing the work itself.

Explanation of Hertzberg
The score that you achieve against each of the factors represents the intensity of feeling that you have
towards that particular factor relative to the other factors that act as motivators.
Hertzberg's research showed that some of the factors were, what he called HYGIENE factors, that is
these are the DISSATISFIERS. If they are not present, then personnel are likely to be demotivated. If
they are present, they do little to increase motivation.
The other set of factors are considered to be MOTIVATORS. That is, if they are present they motivate
personnelhowever,iftheyarenotpresenttheyhaveminimalimpactonthelevelofmotivation.
The HYGIENE Factors are:
A Theimportanceofsalary.
