Herzberg's Theory of Motivation
A theory of motivation developed by Henry Herzberg (1959). He looked at people’s views about work and said that there were 2 types of factors. Hygeine factors he defined as not motivators, but factors that if they were not presence, would cause dissatisfaction. Salary, working conditions and company policy were included here. Motivators in contrast he called satisfiers which were linked to long-term positive effects and included recognition, achievement and responsibility.
