Motivating employees can be a challenge for any employer. Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs is one way to look at the situation. It is a psychological theory explaining the five human needs levels. By understanding and applying these needs, employers can use this to increase employee motivation and performance.
This point of view says that for employees to do their best work, you should first meet their basic needs. These needs include physiological, safety, love and belonging, esteem, and self-actualization.
Lastly, employers can use Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs to create an environment where employees feel secure, valued, and inspired to do their best work.
