Abstract

This paper critically examines Frederick Herzberg’s two factors theory of job satisfaction and its application to business research. The two factor theory of motivation explains the factors that employees find satisfactory and non-satisfactory in their place of employment. These factors are the hygiene factors and motivators. The hygiene factors when present are characterized by insufficiency that can’t satisfy the employees in their work place but the motivators which refers to the nature of the job, provide satisfaction and lead to better motivation. This paper adds to the present knowledge on what motivates employees in industries and academics with the aid of other theories that relate to the Frederick Herzberg theory. It therefore creates a template for re-evaluation of the thinking and viewpoint that motivator factors are rated above hygiene factors in every organization.
