Herzberg’s Two-Factor Theory of motivation

Herzberg’s Two-Factor Theory is one of the most prominent theories regarding motivation factors in the workplace. Psychologist Frederick Herzberg based his theory on some elements of Abraham Maslow's theory of motivation and needs.

Herzberg’s theory broke down workplace needs into two categories:

  1. Motivation factors ensure employee satisfaction
  2. Hygiene factors determine the basic level of stability and job security. Job dissatisfaction arises from a lack of hygiene factors.
