Maslow's Theory is that motivation arises from needs. The people are motivated to satisfy un met needs. (Maslow's Theory). In this passage we found that the workers are not motivated anymore on the job and they are showing it by not performing to the best of their ability. (Nickels, Mchughs.2010).

McGregor's Theory X and Y is the way managers go about motivating people at work depends greatly on their attitudes workers. (Nickels, Mchughs.2010). McGregor's Theory is more structured but you can't be to firm because you want to make your employees comfortable with you so they can trust that you would be a fair manager. I really think there are a lot of company that uses this Theory but I feel like you shouldn't go by what the manager say sometimes because it can get personal and u can be the best worker in the company but if the manager dislike you in any way they can give you a bad
