Maslow, Mcgregor, Hercberg and Mayo re the motivational theorists. They established the theories to motivate employees different and all are good and needed to motivate employees.
The behavioural approach to motivation adopted the approach that the employees will be motivated if management meets their psychological needs.
There were numerous strategies adopted by theorists that adopt this approach. These include:
Maslow established a hierarchy of needs that must be met if employees are to be motivated.
The lower levels of need should be met first and management should work their way up the hierarchy in order to fully motivate employees.
The hierarchy of needs are:
Ego and self-esteem needs
Safety and security needs
McGregor adopted a theory that stated that employees were motivated according to what type of person they were - type X or type Y.
Type Y people are best motivated by encouraging them to achieve their goals and treating them as individuals.
Type X people are best motivated within a controlled environment where they are told what to do and how to do it.
Herzberg also established a motivational theory based on Maslow's theory.
He distinguished between needs that he defined as job satisfiers (higher order needs) and those he defined as job dissatisfiers (lower order needs).
Management must find the means to make jobs more enjoyable and challenging for employees in order to motivate them.
The dissatisfiers are associated with external or extrinsic needs whilst the satisfiers are associated with internal or intrinsic needs.
Mayo stated that motivating employees was associated with giving adequate attention to the employees and improving the social environment of the workplace.
Other theorists including Alderfer, Skinner and McClelland all attempted to establish how best to motivate employees in order to improve their performance level and to ensure that they stay with the organisation.
