Hertzberg’s Hygiene Factors
Hertzberg’s Hygiene Factors considers how important the working environment is to your employees satisfaction at work. The effects of poor working conditions, the tools and training to do the work are some key areas that managers can have an immediate effect on productivity. The Hygiene Factors when resolved don’t motivate employees to be more productive. The Motivators are significantly more personal.
Feel free to request the templates firstname.lastname@example.org. I am happy to share.
1. Ask your employees to judge their satisfaction levels in each of the aspects as listed above
2. Plot the amalgamated results on the template below.
3. Use the information to assess how you might reduce the hygiene factors causing dissatisfaction.
4. Assess how motivated your staff currently is and use as a basis for an employee engagement review.
Please do share your experiences with this model in the comments below. I am building a portfolio of small business case studies and would love to include examples of what has worked well for you.
