He thought management should involve workers in decision making - democratic style of management as well as good communication. Also, supervisors should pay attention to individuals social needs.
Maslows hierarchy of needs: people needs the basics first - said people start meeting the needs at the bottom of the pyramid. Once they have sorted those needs they can move to the needs on the next level up.
Top of pyramid: self actualisation : providing challenging new tasks and roles within the organisation.
Esteem needs: Recognition and promotion
Social needs: teamwork, and social events
Safety: security at work (safe job), safe working environment
Physiological: good workings conditions, good salary and wage

Herzberg: 2 factors that motivate people:
1) hygiene factors: salary, working conditions, company policy - improvements to these won't increase motivation but will remove dissatisfaction.
2) motivators: recognition, personal achievement, responsibility. - these will lead to increases in motivation.
