Study Cards on project, agents, workers

Herzberg's Theory of Motivation
Posits that there are two catalysts for workers: hygiene agents and motivating agents. Hygiene agents do no nothing to motivate, but their absence demotivates workers. Hygiene agents are the expectations all workers have: job security, paychecks, clean and safe working conditions, a sense of belonging, civil working relationships, and other basic attributes associated with employment. Motivating agents are components such as reward, recognition, promotion, and other values that encourage individuals to succeed.
