5 Motivation Theories For Any HR Managers (Part 2)


Published by David McClelland in 1960s, McClelland’s Need Theory refers to 3 kinds of needs that human are motivated by: achievement, affiliation and power. Relevant to each type of needs is a behavioral style. People with achievement needs should be given challenging but reachable projects and goals as they appreciate recognition. Affiliation needs often drive those seek approval to work best when cooperating with others. Lastly, people with power needs are socially oriented and find interest in managing others and influencing them.

Motivation Factors involve responsibility, self-actualization, professional growth and recognition while Hygiene Factors include working condition, salary, personal life, relationship at work, security and status.
