Points To Remember
The effects of getting hygiene factors right are only temporary.
The results of getting hygiene factors wrong can cause long lasting problems
The more choice people can exercise over both hygiene factors and motivators, the better motivated they will be.
Job insecurity undermines motivation at all levels.
Recognizing good work is as important as rewarding it.
D) Ensuring Motivation
The second of Hertzberg’s two factors is a set of “motivators" that actually drive people to achieve. These are what a manager should aim to provide in order to maintain a satisfied workforce. How much a person enjoys achievement depends purely on its recognition. The ability to achieve, in turn, rests on having an enjoyable job and responsibility. The greater that responsibility, the more the individual can feel the satisfaction of advancement. Motivators are built around obtaining growth and “self-actualization" from tasks. You can raise motivation in your staff by increasing their responsibility, thereby “enriching" their jobs.
