The Motivation-Hygiene Theory or Herzberg’s Theory
When it comes to employee motivation, Frederick Herzberg is one of the most well known writers out there. He is famous for his two-factor theory, otherwise known as the motivation-hygiene theory. Herzberg recognized that there is one set of factors that leads to employee satisfaction at work and another that leads to dissatisfaction. Hygiene factors and dissatisfaction at work is a set of factors that mainly refer to working conditions. The key point about hygiene factors is that in their absence, particularly when they are suddenly removed, that causes dissatisfaction at work. Unlike hygiene factors that are there regardless of how

in thinking can be traced back to 1989, when David Strachan put forth the "hygiene hypothesis" in the British Medical Journal. Strachan looked at the records of 17,000 British children and found that the greater number of older siblings they had, the less likely they were to come down with hay fever—a disease which, despite its name, is far more common in the city than the country. Strachan wondered if the older children were bringing home more viral infections to their younger siblings, priming their immune systems so they could better tolerate pollen. The "hygiene hypothesis" has now been linked with asthma, allergies, intestinal diseases including Crohn's disease, childhood leukemia and
