Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs establishes a hierarchy of basic human needs. Maslow’s table prioritizes, in ascending order, the fundamental means of survival — food, clothing, shelter, safety — as they progress to the more sophisticated, intangible necessities for achieving internal growth — a sense of belonging, self-esteem, self-actualization. As an individual moves up the pyramid, they become more social and productive; each need contributes further to the individual’s full growth and potential. The same concept can also be applied to the workplace. What are the basic elements your organization needs to provide for your employees to successfully complete their duties, and what will you need to further provide in order to maximize individual contribution to the company and increase overall employee satisfaction?
