It is concentrated in which they require the people to take rewarding lives, in particular in relation to its work. 4. Theory of both factors of the motivation: This is the theory developed by Frederick Herzberg at the end of the Fifties, in which the satisfaction is said as much that as the labor dissatisfaction derives from two series different from factors. On the one hand we have to the hygienic factors or of dissatisfaction, and on the other to the motivantes or satisfactores. Unsatisfactory hygienic factors or: they talk about the conditions that surround to the employee while it works, including the physical training conditionses and environmental of the work, the social wage, benefits, the policies of the company, the received type of supervision, the climate of the relations between the direction and the employees, the internal procedureses, the existing opportunities, etc.
