For this assignment I will be discussing Maslows Hierarchy of Needs Theory and McGregors Theory X and Theory Y To begin with Maslow developed his Hierarchy Theory over a period of many years during the mid twentieth century Maslows levels included 1 Physiological needs This aspect refers to the general required necessities for functioning in life In organizational contexts it pertains to the salary or wage which ultimately help one attain these necessities 2 Safety needs These needs help us develop a sense of security from elements which may threaten us Again this can be seen in salary as it provides us with the means to shelter ourselves and set up any kind of safety netting that we may need 3 Affiliation needs As the Beatles once said all you need is love and I firmly believe that everyone needs some degree of affection In the organizational setting this can be very important as you will be spending a great deal of your life at work to develop social ties 4 Esteem needs This refers to the individuals need of accomplishment satisfaction Esteem needs are divided into two contexts internal and external 5 Need for self-actualization In short Maslow defines this level as a need to be all that you can be In organizational regards this need can be fulfilled by a job or task which meets the individuals needs In my experience I find all of these levels to be just and pertinent The first two levels physiological and Safety are self explanatory Every man and woman has a conscious need to survive and I feel that this is what these two levels basically come down to It can be related to a parents need to provide for their child The third level Affiliation is also a no-brainer for the most part Though it is unfair to say everyone needs this I would have to say that most people are not sociopaths
