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?
