Hygiene factors in the workplace

According to Herzberg, the two-factor theory holds that motivational factors and hygiene factors need to be addressed independently.

The primary hygiene factors:

  • Pay. Low pay will quickly cause dissatisfaction among employees.
  • Benefits. An employer should ensure that the benefits they provide are competitive.
  • Job security. Employers should let employees know they are valued and that their jobs are safe.
  • Work conditions. Employers shouldn’t cut corners when it comes to the welfare and safety of employees.
