Discussion: Week 2: How to design jobs to enhance satisfaction and motivation: Job Characteristics Model
Read the following: Herzbergâ€™s Motivation-Hygiene Theory.
Herzbergâ€™s Theory suggests that pay and benefits are not motivators, because they do not satisfy the worker (who doesnâ€™t want more pay or vacation time?). However, they can cause dissatisfaction if not sufficient. Critically compare and contrast his theory to the Job Characteristics Model. For example: What factors leading to satisfaction (motivators) can be aligned with Job Characteristics or Critical Psychological States? Do you think any of Herzbergâ€™s dissatisfiers (hygiene factors) align with Job Characteristics or Critical Psychological States? Does this mean one or both of these theories is wrong?
The discussion should be at least 150 words and include two references.
