Human Resources and Human Relation Models Human Relations People wish to be liked and respected. If there needs are met, employees will produce for the organization. Managers should convince workers that they are valuable team members. Managers should allow employee participation in routine decision making. Sharing information with employees will increase their satisfaction, which will improve their morale and reduce resistance to authority, thus improving productivity. Human Resources Most people desire a sense of accomplishment. Most employees have untapped resources and are capable of more than most jobs allow. Managers should tap and guide each employee’s hidden talents and creativity to harmonize with organizational goals. Managers should allow (and encourage employee participation in routine and important decision making situations Employee satisfaction is a by-product of improved performance Copyright Cengage ©

McGregor’s Theory Y Messages travel up and down in the organization Decisions shared & based on input from all levels Feedback is encouraged in an upward direction > Copyright Cengage ©

Beliefs of Theory X and Y Managers Theory X (Traditional) 1.The average person has an inherent dislike of work and will avoid if possible. 2.Most people will not strive to achieve organizational objectives unless they are coerced, controlled, directed, and threatened with punishment 3. The average person prefers to be directed, whishes to avoid responsibility, has relatively little ambition, and wants security above all else. Theory Y (Human Resources) 1.The use of physical and mental energy in work is as natural as play and rest. 2.External control and threats are not only ways to motivate workers to meet organizational objectives. A person who is committed to the objectives will exercise self-direction and self- control. 3.Commitment to objectives is a motivator and a function of rewards and achievement. 4.Under proper conditions, workers learn not only to accept but also to seek responsibility. 5.The capacity to exercise a relatively high degree of ingenuity and creativity is widely distributed in the population 6.The intellectual potentialities of most people are only partly utilized in modern organizations.
