Albert The home environment is critical for maintaining health and well-being among the medically ill and people living with disabilities. Access to appropriate supportive care technologies and home health care services depends in part on where homes are located, what sorts of spaces are available for care in the home, and whether basic services such as utilities are reliable.
The Multinational Corporation Motivation Theories: Individual Needs Motivation is a complex phenomenon.
Several theories attempt to explain how motivation works. In management circles, probably the most popular explanations of motivation are based on the needs of the individual. The basic needs model, referred to as content theory of motivation, highlights the specific factors that motivate an individual.
Although these factors are found within an individual, things outside the individual can affect him or her as well. In short, all people have needs that they want satisfied. Some are primary needs, such as those for food, sleep, and water—needs that deal with the physical aspects of behavior and are considered unlearned.
These needs are biological in nature and relatively stable. Their influences on behavior are usually obvious and hence easy to identify.
Secondary needs, on the other hand, are psychological, which means that they are learned primarily through experience. These needs vary significantly by culture and by individual.
Secondary needs consist of internal states, such as the desire for power, achievement, and love. Identifying and interpreting these needs is more difficult because they are demonstrated in a variety of ways. Secondary needs are responsible for most of the behavior that a supervisor is concerned with and for the rewards a person seeks in an organization.
Abraham Maslow's hierarchy of needs theory Several theorists, including Abraham Maslow, Frederick Herzberg, David McClelland, and Clayton Alderfer, have provided theories to help explain needs as a source of motivation. Abraham Maslow defined need as a physiological or psychological deficiency that a person feels the compulsion to satisfy.
This need can create tensions that can influence a person's work attitudes and behaviors. Maslow formed a theory based on his definition of need that proposes that humans are motivated by multiple needs and that these needs exist in a hierarchical order.
His premise is that only an unsatisfied need can influence behavior; a satisfied need is not a motivator. Maslow's theory is based on the following two principles: A satisfied need no longer motivates behavior because people act to satisfy deprived needs.
In his theory, Maslow identified five levels of human needs. Table illustrates these five levels and provides suggestions for satisfying each need. Although research has not verified the strict deficit and progression principles of Maslow's theory, his ideas can help managers understand and satisfy the needs of employees.
Frederick Herzberg offers another framework for understanding the motivational implications of work environments. Hygiene factors include salary, job security, working conditions, organizational policies, and technical quality of supervision.
Although these factors do not motivate employees, they can cause dissatisfaction if they are missing. However, these improvements in hygiene factors do not necessarily increase satisfaction. Satisfiers or motivators include such things as responsibility, achievement, growth opportunities, and feelings of recognition, and are the key to job satisfaction and motivation.Finally, professionals with low social support had a significantly higher burnout.
