The two-factor theory is one developed by Frederick Herzberg indicating that a satisfied employee is motivated from within to work harder and that a dissatisfied employee is not self-motivated.
Herzberg identified two classes of factors associated with employee satisfaction and dissatisfaction. In his researched, Herzberg found out that that satisfied employees mentioned the following factors (called satisfiers or motivation factors) responsible for job satisfaction: achievement, recognition, work itself, responsibility, advancement, and growth. Dissatisfied employees mentioned the following factors (called dissatisfiers or hygiene factors) as responsible for job dissatisfaction: company policy and administration, supervision, relationship with peers, personal life, relationship with subordinates, status, and security.
If Herzberg theory will be considered by the engineer manager in motivating employees, he must do something to eliminate the dissatisfiers and install satisfiers.
