1. Maslow’s Need Hierarchy Theory 2. McGregor’s X andY Theories 3. Ouchi’s Z theory 4. Herzberg’s Two-factor theory 5. McClelland’s Need theory 6. Vroom’s Expectancy theory. 7.Adelfer’s ERG theory
THEORY X 1. People, in general, dislike work. They avoid their duties and are basically lazy. 2. Most people are un-ambitious. They do not voluntarily accept any responsibility. 3. Most people lack creativity. They show no preference for learning anything new factors. 4. Satisfaction of physiological and safety needs alone is important for most people. Workers in general are only bothered about their salary, job security and such other extrinsic factors. 5. While at work, an employee needs to be closely supervised and watched. THEORY Y 1. People are not averse to work. Given the proper working conditions the workers would do their work with the kind of enthusiasm. They show for their other activities like playing and eating. 2. Workers are ambitious and they do come forward to accept responsibility. 3. Workers do have the potentials to be creative. If the management has a positive outlook, it will certainly encourage the workers to display their creative ideas and skills. 4. It is not correct to assume that only satisfaction of physiological and safety needs are important for most workers. The workers do many things to have their ego satisfied. There are workers with tremendous potentials who want to work to their maximum capabilities. 5. Workers need not be directed and closely supervised. They are good in what is called ‘self- direction’.
THEORY X MANAGERS Have little regard for people Tend to be very authoritarian Generally unlikely to motivate anyone to work willingly and well THEORY Y MANAGERS Pay attention to individual needs Unlikely to be authoritarian Boost morale of workers through incentives and rewards
Maslow’s Need Hierarchy Theory Human behaviour is directed towards the satisfaction of certain needs. (i) Physiological Needs (ii)Safety Needs (iii) Social Needs (iv) Esteem Needs and (v) Self-actualization Needs
Safety Needs Security of job / employment; resources; family; property; health Protection Law and order
Social Needs Friendship Association Affection Love
Esteem Needs Ego Status Recognition Self respect by others
Self –Actualization Needs The need to achieve our full potential
Herzberg, a clinical psychologist and pioneer of “job enrichment,” developed his motivation theory during his investigation of 200 accountants and engineers in the USA.
People are influenced by two factors: Hygiene factors are needed to ensure an employee does not become dissatisfied. They do not lead to higher levels of motivation, but without them there is dissatisfaction. Motivation factors are needed in order to motivate an employee into higher performance. These factors result from internal generators in employees.
Examples of “Hygiene” Needs or Maintenance Factors The organization, its policies & administration Kind of supervision (leadership & management, including perceptions) Relationship with supervisor Work conditions (including ergonomics) Salary Status Job security Interpersonal relations
Hygiene Needs People will strive to achieve “hygiene” needs because they are unhappy without them, but once satisfied, the effect soon wears off – satisfaction is temporary. (Chapman) Parallels with Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs Motivational Model
True Motivators Achievement Recognition for achievement Work itself (interest in the task) Responsibility Growth and advancement
